(Indianapolis, Ind.) – This is the final year Jim Nabors will sing at the Indianapolis 500. 

Nabors has sung “Back Home Again In Indiana” every year since 1972, except for 2007 and 2012 when he was sick.

The 83-year-old says his singing voice is just fine, but the traveling has become too much for his body.

The 98th running of the Indianapolis 500 is Sunday, May 25th. Eagle 99.3 will broadcast the race live.

Nabors is best known for playing the character Gomer Pyle on The Andy Griffith Show. Gomer became so popular with fans of the show that it was spun off into another series, Gomer Pyle U.S.M.C.
