Biography

Roy Linwood Clark (b. April 15, 1933, Meherrin, Virginia) is a versatile and well-known country music musician and performer. He is best known for hosting one of the first nationally televised country variety shows in the United States, Hee Haw from 1969 - 1992.

Clark has been an iconic figure in country music, both as a musician and as a popularizer of country music. Clark is an entertainer, most of all, with an amiable personality and a telegenic presence.

During the 1970s, Clark frequently guest-hosted for Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show and enjoyed a 30,000,000 viewership for “Hee Haw”. Clark is highly regarded as both a guitarist and banjo player. He is also skilled in Classical guitar as well as playing several other instruments. While he has had hit songs (e.g. “Yesterday, When I was Young” and “Thank God and Greyhound”), his instrumental skill has had an enormous impact on succeeding generations of both bluegrass and country musicians.
