About Roy Clark

Although he was best-known to the general populace for his work on the Hee Haw TV show, Roy Clark was also a virtuoso multi-instrumentalist capable of producing fireworks on anything with strings, going back to the early '60s, when he was a fiery fretmaster along the lines of Joe Maphis or Jimmy Bryant. His middle-of-the-road approach filled a national void, with Clark offering country that was harder-edged than Kenny Rogers but softer and more accessible than Waylon Jennings. Among his numerous vocal hits are "Yesterday When I Was Young" and "Thank God and Greyhound."
