Every summer on vacation, I always pick up a copy of “Sports Illustrated”, not the swimsuit edition but the “Where are they now?” edition. It’s always fun to see where big names of the past are today. One big name in country music is Roy Clark, and he’s still going strong.Here’s more from his website, thesuperpicker.com:

Roy became a Grand Ole Opry member in 1987. He was a favorite recurring actor on the classic television sitcom “The Beverly Hillbillies” which spawned several acting roles on television and the movies. He also hosted the incomparable “Hee Haw” show for over two decades. He and wife Barbara live in Oklahoma where he finds time to fish, fly his airplanes and ride motorcycles.
