    “moved to Los Angeles because of his asthma”

    Well, Gollllllly! Boy, L.A. must have been very different back then! LOL

    I don’t know when I first learned he was gay, but I can’t remember NOT knowing. I’ll be honest though–he’s one of those out-of-the-news actors who I kind of assumed had already left us a while ago. The last time I saw him was on TV singing either “Back Home Again in Indiana” at the Indy 500 or “My Old Kentucky Home” at the Derby. Maybe he sang once at both events???

    Mazel Tov (in my head, that’s in Gomer’s voice) to the happy couple!

    Found my answer…

    “Nabors began performing “Back Home Again in Indiana” in 1972 and since 1987 has performed it every year but one: He missed the 2007 race due to health reasons.”

    I guess it’s just been a long time since I felt the urge to watch three hours of cars racing around a track :)

    The rumors about nabors were everywhere when I was a boy. Good for him now.

    He actually started out on the Andy Griffith show as a service station attendant at Wally’s service station but he “didn’t know a thing about fixin’cars, only gas ‘n oil”. A few episodes late and the entire episode was about him “fixin’ cars”.

    The Andy Griffith Show is my all time favorite TV show. Probably because I lived in an idealic southern town growing up that reminded me very much of Mayberry.

    Congratulations to you both. Now have to watch your old TV reruns.

    I predict this will be a major victory for LGBT equality. Opponents of our rights often change their minds when they realize that their friends, relatives, or Nabors are gay. ;-)

    I liked the Andy Griffith show. And I remember how the Gomer Pyle character got so popular. Andy and Gomer did a duet in an episode and it was one of those moments that was supposed to be very sentimental and wonderful.
    That he was such a foil for Sgt. Carter in GP USMC, was so funny.
    Again, when Sgt. C heard Pyle sing for the first time, one of those moments I really enjoyed.
    I’m so happy for Mr. Nabors, as an actor and singer, he’s very talented and congrats to him and Mr. Cadwallader.
