Louis Nunley, who sang with The Jordanaires and the Anita Kerr Singers, died Friday. His accomplishments including his performances with everyone from Roy Orbison and Jim Reeves to Mandy Barnett and Kristin Chenoweth were listed beautifully in an obituary in Sunday’s Tennessean newspaper. It was my honor to have worked with Louis on two recording sessions with The Jordanaires in 2002. As were Gordon Stoker, Ray Walker and Curtis Young, the other members of the group, Louis was a perfect gentleman
and the ultimate professional. Louis treated my session with as much respect as if it had been one with Eddy Arnold or Dolly Parton, just as Gordon, Curtis and Ray did.
It was a pleasure to have known him briefly and to have had the experience of working with him. Louis contributed to a very fond memory of mine and I’m sure to those of many others, as well.
