Bill Anderson and Roy Clark Reunite for ‘Hee Haw’ Special
‘Hee Haw,’ a comedic TV show set in the fictional Kornfield Kountry and featuring plenty of country music, stopped filming 20 years ago but is still a fan favorite. With an all-star cast that included Bill Anderson, Roy Clark and Buddy Alan (Owens), the show remains one of the most iconic series of the last several decades. Now, several of the cast members will reunite for a TV special to talk about their fondest memories and what life was like for castmates when the cameras weren’t rolling.
Bill, Roy and Buddy will join several of the musical guests and previous stars of the show for ‘Country’s Family Reunion Salute to the Kornfield,’ which will air on RFD-TV this weekend. The episodes will air once on Friday, Jan. 6, at 8:00 PM ET and twice on Saturday, Jan. 7, at both 6:00 AM and 12 Midnight ET.
Fans who can’t catch the TV special can still get a glimpse of all the fun. A series of five DVDs, which includes appearances by Ricky Skaggs, Larry Gatlin, Moe Bandy, George Lindsey, Gene Watson and Lulu Roman, is also available, highlighting all the behind-the-scenes action.
“It had been a number of years since many of us had seen each other and the reunion was joyous,” Lulu shares (quote via Country Music Chat). “Several of the cast were missing and it was a firm reminder that for some of us, it was quite possibly the last time we might see each other,” she sentimentally added. “It was a very special get together.”
