Roy Clark, ‘Hee Haw’ Honored by Sunday Mornin’ Country
Lynn Anderson and George Hamilton IV are gathering friends and peers for the 31st annual Sunday Mornin' Country Celebration, a well-loved tradition held the Sunday after the annual CMA Music Fest. This year's event, scheduled for June 13, will feature a musical tribute to singer and musician Roy Clark, who was the long-running co-host of 'Hee Haw' with the late Buck Owens.
Lynn and George will welcome a wide variety of talent to the show, including Buddy Jewell, Louise Mandrell, Gary Morris, T. Graham Brown, Jason Crabb, the Fox Brothers and Guy Penrod, formerly with the Gaither Vocal Band. The afternoon of music and fellowship will also reunite many of the original 'Hee Haw' cast including Charlie McCoy, LuLu Roman, Roni Stoneman and producer Sam Luvullo.
Sunday Mornin' Country has been named one of the Southeast Tourism Society's Top 20 Events for Spring 2010. It will be held at 2:30 P.M., June 13 in the James K. Polk Theater at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center. The Nashville-based non-profit, Music City Christian Fellowship is sponsoring the concert.
The organization is asking attendees to bring non-perishable food items to help Nashville's Second Harvest Food Bank restock its shelves after losing $200,000 in food during the recent flood in Music City. The most needed items are canned meat, canned fruit, peanut butter and tuna fish.
