Jim Nabors unable to attend 2012 Indianapolis 500

Entertainer to have heart surgery race weekend

- Actor and entertainer Jim Nabors will not be attending the Indy 500 this year but don't worry, he'll still be singing "Back Home Again in Indiana."

A film crew will be traveling to Nabors' home in Hawaii this month to record him singing the song that's made him a Month of May tradition to race fans. The recording will be played over the public address system and video boards during the pre-race festivities.

Nabors is having heart-valve replacement surgery on Memorial Day weekend.

Race Day is Sunday, May 27, 2012.

The Indy 500 airs Live on 94.1 FM, WGFA
