ABOUT ROY CLARK:
Roy Clark is one of the top entertainers ever in country music, and he has the CMA and ACM awards to prove it. Despite all of the well-deserved accolades for the Country Music Hall of Fame member, Clark remains a household name after two decades of spreading the gospel of country music from Kornfield Kounty into the living rooms of America. Clark co-hosted HEE HAW for more than two decades after it premiered on June 15, 1969. HEE HAW became one of the longest-running shows in syndication (1971–1992). In addition to his television triumphs, Clark has headlined some of the world's most prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall, Madison Square Garden, Grand Palace in Brussels and the Rossiya Theatre in Moscow. A partial list of his many awards include the Academy of Country Music's Entertainer of the Year, Academy of Country Music's Comedy Act of the Year and a Grammy for "Alabama Jubilee." Clark became a Grand Ole Opry member in 1987. He was also the first country music artist to guest host Johnny Carson's "Tonight Show." Clark and wife Barbara live in Oklahoma where he finds time to fish, fly his airplanes and ride motorcycles.
