Jim Nabors is battling fake death reports. The confusion is happening because fans mixed up Andy Griffith Show characters.
Fans reportedly confused Goober Pyle with Gomer Pyle. George Lindsey, who played Goober Pyle of the Andy Griffith Show, died Sunday. And fans confused that character with Nabor's character Gomer Pyle.
Nabor's has sung 'Back Home in Indiana' for the start of every Indy 500 since 1972 with the exception of one year. He will miss this year's race, but will record the song before the start of the race from his home in Hawaii.
