Country Music Legend Roy Clark Passes Away

Country music legend, Roy Clark, has passed away at the age of 85 according to a representative for the singer. Clark was a headliner on the iconic show "Hee Haw."

According to
Fox News:

Country star Roy Clark, the legendary singer and guitar player who headlined the cornpone TV show "Hee Haw" for nearly a quarter century has died. He was 85.

A rep for the singer told Fox News Clark died on Thursday at his Tulsa, Okla., home due to complications from pneumonia.

Clark was "Hee Haw" host or co-host for its entire 24-year run, with Buck Owens his best-known co-host. The country music and comedy show's last episode aired in 1993, though reruns continued for a few years thereafter. He was known for such hits as "Yesterday When I was Young" and "Honeymoon Feeling."

"'Hee Haw' won't go away. It brings a smile to too many faces," he said in 2004, when the show was distributed on VHS and DVD for the first time.

Clark was a member of the Grand Ol' Opry and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2009.
