My mother's gone now but she loved Buck Owens and Roy Clark. My husband loves to imitate her dance shuffle.

Good Luck,

I loved watching Hee Haw when I was a kid. Buck Owens was a true legend. Love that Bakersfield sound. Who could forget his red, white and blue guitar!

I met Buck Owens , Roy Clark , Minnie Pearl's Husband (can't remember his name) and Grandpa Jones years ago.
Here in my hometown. I worked as a desk clerk for Best Western.
Each year they would come to Arkansas for duck hunting season.
They were such down to earth extremely nice people. And big tippers.

I remember the first time they came in , I wanted to call my parents so so bad,
They were both big Hee Haw fans. But my manager made everyone take an oath
that they wouldn't tell anyone :laugh:
