The Recording Academy Releases Statement on the Passing of Gordon Stoker

The Recording Academy has released a statement on the passing of Gordon Stoker:

GRAMMY winner Gordon Stoker was known for his stellar tenor voice, which graced countless memorable recordings throughout his more than 60-year career. As a longtime member of the vocal quartet the Jordanaires, he helped to influence the sound of gospel, country and pop music with a unique and versatile style while recording with an impressive roster of artists. Stoker worked with the likes of Patsy Cline, George Jones, Loretta Lynn and played a significant role in the career of Elvis Presley for more than a decade. We have lost a gifted and timeless artist who made significant contributions to music and our industry, and our sincerest condolences go out to his family, friends and all who were inspired by his talents.
