Georgia Carroll

Biography

American singer, fashion model, and actress, best known for her work with Kay Kyser's big band orchestra in the mid-1940s.

Carroll's first brush with celebrity was when she was the model for "The Spirit of the Centennial" statue at the 1936 Texas Centennial Exposition in Dallas. Her acting career began in 1941 when she appeared in several uncredited small roles in films such as Maisie Was a Lady, Ziegfeld Girl, You're in the Army Now, Navy Blues, and the musical Yankee Doodle Dandy in 1942.

In 1943, Carroll joined Kay Kyser's band, known as the "Kollege of Musical Knowledge", as a featured vocalist. Capitalizing on her good looks, she was given the nickname "Gorgeous Georgia Carroll". As a member of Kyser's band, Carroll appeared in three films: Around the World, Carolina Blues, and most notably Thousands Cheer in which she delivers a key solo interlude of the Arthur Freed/Nacio Herb Brown standard, "Should I?"

In 1945, Carroll married Kyser and made no further film appearances, retiring from performing in 1946. The couple, who had three children, remained married until his death in 1985. She died in Chapel Hill, North Carolina on January 14, 2011.
