Thursday, November 15, 2018 — John Schneider has issued a statement on today’s passing of Country Music icon, Roy Clark:“Roy was an amazing talent whose smile and dexterity on a guitar would always light up the biggest of rooms.

Country Music Icon Roy Clark Dies at 85

Roy Clark, the legendary ‘superpicker’, GRAMMYCMA and ACM award winner, Country Music Hall of Fame and Grand Ole Opry member and co-host of the famed ‘Hee Haw’ television series, died today at the age of 85 due to complications from pneumonia at home in Tulsa, Okla.

Roy Clark’s decade-defying success could be summed up in one word — sincerity. Sure, he was one of the world’s finest multi-instrumentalists, and one of the first cross-over artists to land singles on both the pop and country charts. He was the pioneer who turned Branson, Mo., into the live music capital of the world (the Ozark town today boasts more seats than Broadway). And his talents turned Hee Haw into the longest-running syndicated show in television history.
