Roy Clark, country music legend and host of the nationally televised variety show Hee Haw, has died at the age of 85.
"Clark was a fixture in country fans" living rooms for almost a quarter-century, from 1969 to 1993, as the co-host of Hee Haw alongside Buck Owens. In the mid-'50s, Clark honed his television chops as a regular on Country Style, the D.C. -based television show hosted by Jimmy Dean, eventually taking over as host after Dean relocated to NY.
Clark worked with fellow country musicians for more than half a century, from Hank Williams to Brad Paisley and countless others who either made their way into a "Hee Haw" skit or the stage at the Grand Ole Opry.
