About The Jordanaires

Perhaps best known as Elvis Presley's backing singers from the 1950s through the mid-'60s, this vocal quartet had a robust career of their own. Like many country/gospel artists of the era, they got their first big break on the Grand Ole Opry and Louisiana Hayride programs in the late '40s, and recorded several albums of spine-tingling inspirational music. They have also backed many other country stars, such as Johnny Cash and Jim Reeves. Although their lineup has changed several times since their inception, the group continues to record and perform their uplifting four-part harmony, treating audiences to a precious musical tradition that is fast becoming an anomaly.
