House Resolution No. 3263

            Whereas, the members of the Missouri House of Representatives occasionally pause in their diverse legislative duties in order to recognize Show-Me State residents who have brought glory and honor to themselves and to this great state through the excellence of their artistic achievements; and

            Whereas, Narvel Felts of Malden, Missouri, is a world-renowned Country music and Rockabilly singer and musician who entered the field of music at the age of seventeen when he won a high school talent contest in Bernie, Missouri; and

            Whereas, a disc jockey from KDEX radio attended the talent show, which led to Narvel Felts having a Saturday afternoon radio show for a few months until he met Jerry Mercer, who had an established band and a performance circuit that could use the young man as a featured singer and player of the upright bass; and

            Whereas, after opening a show for Roy Orbison and Eddie Bond at a drive-in theater in Dexter, Narvel Felts was offered an audition with Sun Records; and

            Whereas, a week-long performance at the Fox Theater in Saint Louis likewise led to an audition with Mercury Records, which led to a contract, which led to Billboard Magazine hits and a series of concerts and tours throughout the United States and around the globe; and

            Whereas, in 2006 Narvel Felts was inducted into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame in Jackson, Tennessee, after many years as a Rockabilly artist who drifted into Country music in the 1970s; and

            Whereas, on April 30, 2012, Narvel Felts celebrated the Fiftieth Anniversary of his marriage to the former Loretta Stanfield, who has supported and encouraged him in all of his lifelong endeavors; and

            Whereas, the marital union of Narvel and Loretta Felts has been wonderfully blessed by the love and affection of their children, Stacia Felts and the late Narvel "Bub" Felts, Jr.:

            Now, therefore, be it resolved that we, the members of the Missouri House of Representatives, Ninety-sixth General Assembly, join unanimously to applaud the personal and professional accomplishments garnered thus far in the life and work of Narvel Felts and to convey to him this legislative body's most heartfelt best wishes for continued success for many more years to come; and

            Be it further resolved that the Chief Clerk of the Missouri House of Representatives be instructed to prepare a properly inscribed copy of this resolution for presentation to Narvel Felts of Malden, Missouri.


                                                                                    Offered by ______________________________________

                                                                                                      Representative Kent Hampton

                                                                                                      District No. 163


I, Steven Tilley, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Ninety-sixth General Assembly, Second Regular Session, do certify that the above is a true and correct copy of House Resolution No. 3263, adopted May 17, 2012.




                                                                                    Steven Tilley, Speaker
