Pickin' and grinnin', singin' and spinnin' tall tales and corny jokes, the citizens of Kornfield Kounty landed on television in 1969 with the arrival of "Hee Haw" as a summer replacement series for "The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour." Each week, co-hosts Buck Owens and Roy Clark and the cast of comedians and musicians would welcome the biggest stars in country music to perform their songs and help deliver the one-liners. Conceived as a rural alternative to "Rowan & Martin's Laugh In," "Hee Haw" ranked in the Top 20 nationwide when CBS dropped the show in 1971 in an attempt to "de-countrify" the network's programming. It was quickly picked up and became the longest-running weekly syndicated original series in television history.
Since its beginnings in the summer of 1969, the Hee Haw concert series has been entertaining audiences with its down-home brand of good country fun. Corny jokes and the best performers country music had to offer were the staples of this long-running show, a more rural take on the sketch comedy of Rowan & Martin's LAUGH-IN. Hosted by country-music legends Buck Owens and Roy Clark, the show was in syndication for over 20 years after being dropped by CBS in 1971, and maintained its popularity through its good-natured, consciously hokey one-liners. The good people of Kornfield County are back once again for this fifth volume of the collection. Here to share in the usual Hee Haw antics and skits are such singers as Terry McMillian, Kenny Price, and the legendary Dolly Parton. The set includes Terry McMillian singing "Foggy Mountain Breakdown," Barbi Benton singing "Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep," Kenny Price's "Que Pasa," and such classic Dolly tracks as "Love Is Like A Butterfly," and "I Will Always Love You."
