Join me at 11 a.m. December 8th for the Sunday Morning Country Classic Spotlight featuring Narvel Felts.  The Country Classic Show kicks off at 9 a.m.

Narvel was born on November 11, 1938 near Keiser, Arkansas but raised in Bernie, Missouri.  He is a singer and songwriter best known for a string of commercially, very successful country music hits in the 1970′s.

He started out as a rock-a-billy artist, then went pure country in the 1970′s.  He recorded for Sun Records in the 1950′s, where he was coached by Roy Orbison and Johnny Cash.  Felts had his first success in 1973 with a country cover of the song, Drift Away.  The song went to #8 on the Billboard Magazine Country Singles chart.

Then came, Reconsider Me which reached #2 in August of 1975.  In fact it was 1975′s second biggest country hit of that year.  He is also known for his remake of, Lonely Teardrops in 1976 and his cover of Willie Nelson’s Funny How Time Slips Away and Everlasting Love in 1979.

He is married to Loretta Stanfields and together they have two children.  Tragedy struck in 1995 when he lost his only son Narvel Jr.,  who at one time played drums for his dad when they were on the road.

He now lives in Malden, Missouri and still performs on occasion.  Felts is a member of the Rock-A-Billy Hall of Fame and served in the Army National Guard.
