The Rockabilly Days

At the age of 17, Narvel Felts won his high school talent contest in Bernie, Missourri and became one of the first among the great Rockabilly stars. The songs on this page are an introduction into Narvel's beginning years and that wonderful era of Rockabilly.

Tell Me CD Did You Tell Me (You Don't Care)

On January 23, 1957 Narvel's first studio recording, "Did You Tell Me" was done while Roy Orbison, Harold Jenkins (later to be known as Conway Twitty), and Johnny Cash were in the studio. This was the only the start of a long road of success for Narvel. It's been a winding road, but he's not nearly at the end of it. There are miles yet to be paved and traveled.

1959 - Turned down by Mercury Records, Hi Records felt Three Thousand Miles would be a smash. It became Narvel's first charted hit reaching #90 on the charts. After it made the charts, Mercury Records sent Narvel a magazine with "Three Thousand Miles" circled in the chart saying, "Narvel, we obviously missed on this one."
