I used to love watching Hee Haw with my parents, and have some fond memories of sitting around the television and being introduced to great musical artists like Johnny Cash and Loretta Lynn. So, when I heard that Time Life had released a Hee Haw Salute! 3-DVD set, I instantly thought back to my childhood, and knew that this was going to be one of the gifts I surprise my parents with this Christmas. Maybe they will let me borrow it, or even better, have a family dinner one Sunday and follow up by watching a few shows. That would be nice. :-)
Did you grow up watching Hee Haw, or know someone who did? If you said, "yes" then you will want to hear more about this recent DVD set release, as it would definitely make for a great gift idea this holiday. And, read on to learn how you can enter my giveaway to win a DVD set for yourself or to give as a gift. :-)
More about this new 3-DVD release:
"With a mix of down-to-earth and relatable characters, knee-slapping comedic zingers, and jaw-dropping musical performances, Hee Haw captivated large portions of the country when it first premiered on television in the late 1960s.
One-liners flew. Stars like Johnny Cash and Loretta Lynn performed. The show’s co-hosts were Buck Owens and Roy Clark, and, on June 15, 1969, the two musicians and songwriters, Buck and Roy, introduced a national audience to the fictional setting of Kornfield Kounty, a regular old place populated by hardworking farmers, barbers, banjo players, husbands, and housewives.
After a two-year run on CBS, Pfft! Hee Haw was gone, getting picked up in syndication and airing until 1992, making it the “longest-running weekly syndicated original series in television history.
Talented Cast: Kornfield Kounty characters included Minnie Pearl, Grandpa Jones, Archie Campbell, Stringbean and the rest of the Hee Haw gang, all led by Roy and Buck.
Musical Guest Stars: Johnny Cash, Melba Montgomery, Buck Owens, Freddy Fender, Roy Clark, Tanya Tucker, Loretta Lynn, Conway Twitty, David Houston, George Jones, Tammy Wynette, Mickey Gilley, Kitty Wells, Freddy Weller and more!
Hit Country Songs: Performances include I Walk the Line; Wasted Days, Wasted Nights; Done Somebody Wrong Song; Rednecks, White Socks and Blue Ribbon Beer Before the Next Teardrop Falls; Delta Dawn; White Lightning; Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man; The Grand Tour; It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angles and others."
