Biography

The Jordanaires were an American vocal quartet that formed as a gospel group in 1948. Over the years, they have recorded both sacred and secular music as a solo act for various record companies, including Capitol Records, RCA Victor Records, Columbia Records, Decca Records, Vocalion Records, Stop Records, and many other smaller independent labels.[citation needed]
In the mid-1950s, along with their solo career, they began lending their vocal talents to featured artists as background vocalists in recording sessions. They are widely known for providing background vocals for Elvis Presley, in live appearances, recordings, and feature films from 1956 to 1972. The group has worked in the recording studio, on stage, and on television with many country, gospel, and rock and roll artists.
Their background voices can be heard on at least one Grammy-winning recording every decade from the awards’ inception through the mid-2000s. The first was in 1959 and the last was in 2007, thus winning in six decades.[citation needed]
