Biography

For much of the 1970s, entertainer Roy Clark was one of the most ubiquitous figures in country music, appearing weekly on television as the co-host of the long-running variety show "Hee Haw" (CBS, 1969-1994) and various other programs while maintaining a successful career as a recording artist with a slew of Top Ten singles during the decade. His capacity for broad, cornpone humor occasionally obscured his astonishing talent on a variety of instruments, including banjo, guitar and mandolin, which earned him numerous music awards throughout his career. Clark's fame during the 1970s also allowed him to briefly flirt with acting in features, though music would remain his most successful showcase, even after the hits dwindled in the early 1980s. Despite this setback, he remained an extremely popular concert draw for the next three decades while continuing to record for minor labels. Throughout his half-century in music, Roy Clark's limitless talents and personable nature underscored his status as one of the most admired figures in country music.
