Norah Lee Allen and Richard Sterban don’t share any other link except having an association with a band

There is a common thing happening in today’s entertainment industry where bonds are established unexpectedly. It is not a bad thing since it leads to the formation of new friendships and netizens have got a habit of somehow linking a celebrity to another person.

But the good thing is that the same thing has not happened in terms of Norah Lee Allen. It is unfortunate that she is no more between us and was married to Duane Allen, a member of the band, The Oak Ridge Boys. Things did not end there since another member, Richard Sterban’s better half Donna’s father also passed away in a few hours.

Singing is a profession that has helped a lot of people to gain recognition over the years. Norah Lee Allen also managed to make a name for herself in this profession and was active at the Grand Ole Opry for a long time. Her voice was specifically praised and she was included in the list of the most talented performers.

Norah spent her childhood in Kentucky and developed an interest in singing at the same time. She performed with her family at different events and enrolled at the Warren County High School, where she completed her graduation. She was initially a part of The Chuck Wagon Gang and later came to Benson Publishing Group.

During the 70s, she made her debut at Grand Ole Opry as a part-time performer and was later promoted to a full-time artist. She had a lot of songs under her credits and was a mother of two kids born from her marriage to Duane Allen.
