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.

    I remember in my teens watching Hee Haw, which beside being fairly corny, showcased the talents of both Roy Clark and Buck Owens. At the time, watching Roy play as fast and accurately as he did without breaking a sweat, was mind blowing. All these years later I still marvel at his talent. The Makin' Music with Clarence Gatemouth Brown is a must-have.
