Tony George Interview: Remembering Jim Nabors

From WIBC.com

Jim Nabors passed away today at the age of 87. He became an Indiana legend, even though he was from Alabama, singing "Back Home Again in Indiana" for four decades at the Indy 500. He decided to retire from singing the race anthem in 2014 because he didn't want to leave his home in Hawaii any longer. His health was failing.

We spoke with Tony George, the chairman and former president and CEO of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. He discusses his fondest memories of Jim Nabors. He may not have been born a Hoosier, but he definitely left as one.
