Whatever Happened to Country star and "Hee Haw" host Roy Clark?
The mini real story of Roy Clark. In the mid-1960s, he was a co-host of a weekday daytime country variety series for NBC entitled "Swingin’ Country", which was cancelled after two seasons. In 1969, Clark and Buck Owens were the hosts of syndicated sketch comedy program Hee Haw, which aired from 1969 until 1997 and propelled Clark to stardom. During its tenure, Clark was a member of the Million Dollar Band and participated in a host of comedy sketches. Clark frequently played in Branson during the 1980s and 1990s. He sold the venue and went back to a light touring schedule, which usually included a performance with Ramona Jones and the Jones Family Band at their annual tribute to Clark’s former Hee Haw co-star Grandpa Jones in Mountain View, Arkansas. Clark married Barbara Joyce Rupard on August 31, 1957. The couple had five children. They made their home in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where the Roy Clark Elementary School was named in his honor in 1978.
