Kornfield Friends Set To Appear and Perform on TBN’s HUCKABEE Feb 2 & 3

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – RFD-TV began airing reruns of Hee Haw in September 2008 and remains one of the most watched programs on the network. Now in 2019, eleven years later, Hee Haw is celebrating its 50-year anniversary since its first-run on CBS in 1969. In celebration, RFD-TV will broadcast a live two-hour special on Thursday, January 31st at 10pm ET / 9pm CT that will include the Kornfield Friends – Jana Jae, Misty Rowe, Lulu Roman, and Buck Trent – along with additional cast members Victoria Hallman, Irlene Mandrell, Diana Goodman-McDaniel and members of The Nashville Edition. Country stars who appeared on the show as guests – Charley PrideJanie Fricke, Lee Greenwood, the Gatlin Brothers (Steve and Rudy), Williams & Ree, Baillie & the Boys, David Frizzell and others will also join in during the special, plus some special call in guests!

“I am so excited to keep the Hee Haw name and brand alive,” says Jana Jae, founder and executive producer of the Kornfield Friends touring show. “There were lots of us on the show and many of us have remained friends throughout the years. The sad part is there is not many of us left. So it’s important for us that still work to keep bringing family friendly entertainment to stages everywhere we can.”

HEE HAW premieres each week on RFD-TV on Sunday at 8pm ET/7pm CT with repeats on Monday and Saturday.

About Hee Haw:
Hee Haw is an American television variety show featuring country music and humor with the fictional rural “Kornfield Kounty” as a backdrop. It aired first-run on CBS from 1969 to 1971, in syndication from 1971 to 1993, and on TNN from 1996 to 1997. RFD-TV began airing reruns in 2008, where it currently remains.

The show was inspired by Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, the major difference being that Hee Haw was far less topical and was centered on country music and rural culture. Hosted by country music artists Buck Owens and Roy Clark for most of its run, the show was equally well known for its voluptuous, scantily clad women in stereotypical farmer’s daughter outfits and country-style mini dresses (a group that came to be known as the “Hee Haw Honeys”), and its corn pone humor.

Hee Haw‘s appeal, however, was not limited to a rural audience. It was successful in all of the major markets, including New York, Los Angeles, Boston, and Chicago. Like Laugh-In, the show minimized production costs by taping all of the recurring sketches for a season in batches, setting up for the Cornfield one day, the Joke Fence on another day, etc. At the height of its popularity, an entire season’s worth of shows would be taped in two separate week-long sessions, then individual shows were assembled from edited sections. Only musical performances were taped with a live audience; a laugh track was added to all other segments.

The series was taped for the CBS Television Network at its station affiliate WLAC-TV (now WTVF) in downtown Nashville, and later at Opryland USA in the Donelson area of Nashville. The show was produced by Yongestreet Productions through the mid-1980s; it was later produced by Gaylord Entertainment, which distributed the show in syndication. The show’s name was coined by show business talent manager and producer Bernie Brillstein and derives from a common English onomatopoeia used to describe the braying sound that a donkey makes.

After 25 seasons, the series initially ended its run in June 1993, where it was soon picked up by TNN for reruns. TNN would eventually order an additional season of first-run episodes, beginning November 23, 1996. The show ultimately ended for good on December 27, 1997.

Don McLean Reflects On 60th Anniversary of Buddy Holly’s Death and “The Day The Music Died”

Don McLean Reflects On 60th Anniversary of Buddy Holly’s Death and “The Day The Music Died”

Plus, McLean to make special appearance at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles in March for an intimate performance and Q&A

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – On February 3, 1959, a chartered aircraft crashed in Mason City, Iowa just minutes after takeoff claiming the lives of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, J.P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson and the pilot, Roger Peterson. The fateful day was coined “The Day The Music Died” by iconic singer and songwriter Don McLean, in his hit song “American Pie.” As the 60th anniversary of the tragic plane crash approaches, McLean has not forgotten the day that inspired his magnum opus.

“Buddy Holly was only 22 years old when he died on February 3, 1959,” said McLean. “By that time he had recorded something like 60 songs and every one of them was a hit, and most were hit records. Even the Beatles can not compare to the magnitude of this contribution. The music he made, he invented himself, with very little help from others.”

“American Pie” was released in 1971 and spent four weeks at No. 1 in 1972. In 2001, thirty years later, the Recording Industry of America named it the fifth greatest song of the 20th century.

In 2016, McLean re-released “American Pie” in celebration of the 45th anniversary. Music lovers can hear his classic songs on their original vinyl format. The single has been newly remastered from analog tape by Robert Vosgien and the lacquers cut by Ron McMaster, both at Capitol Studios in Hollywood.

One of McLean’s four handwritten copies of the lyrics to “American Pie” was auctioned by Nate D. Sanders Auctions on January 26, 2017 with the bidding starting at $100,000. It is the second copy to be offered to the public, with the first being sold in 2015. The Harvard University Library has a copy, and the final copy is said to have been given to a close friend of McLean. The lyrics are on eight pages of McLean’s personal stationery in blue ink, featuring the American Pie album art of the gold thumbs up and his signature.

About Don McLean:
A New York native, Don McLean is one of the most revered and respected songwriters in American history. After paying his dues in the New York club scene in the late ‘60s, he went on to score mega-hits like “American Pie,” “Vincent (Starry, Starry Night),” “Castles in the Air” and many more. In 2004, McLean was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame by country superstar Garth Brooks. “American Pie” has brought great happiness and hope to millions of people through the years and continues to be honored for its success. In 2000, the song was named one of the Top 5 Songs of the 20th Century by the RIAA and in 2002 was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. 2017 brought a huge honor when the iconic song was inducted into the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry, joining less than 500 works including “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” classical music compositions, famous live broadcasts, and similar recordings.

With over 40 gold and platinum records worldwide, his prowess for writing timeless songs is once again captured on Botanical Gardens, as he artfully weaves country, Americana, folk, and boot stomping rock for an eclectic, yet American sound that he is known for.

Nashville, Tenn. – The Legendary Soul Man Sam Moore was announced as a guest collaborator on Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member, and world-renowned Nashville-based keyboardist, Reese Wynans first-ever solo album, Sweet Release. Moore makes his guest appearance on the album’s first single, “Crossfire,” providing his signature vocals on the classic song, once sung by Stevie Ray Vaughan.

“Playing music with Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble for five years was an outrageous experience. I loved every minute of it,” shares Wynans. “It was a real treat getting to play a couple of our old songs with Tommy Shannon and Chris Layton. When we were writing this, someone said it reminded them of a Sam & Dave groove. Joe suggested we ask Sam Moore to sing it.”

To celebrate the announcement, the first single “Crossfire“, a tribute to the legacy of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Wynans’ work with Double Trouble, is available as a free song download on Reese and Joe’s websites (reesewynans.com and jbonamassa.com respectively).

“I was crazy about Stevie Ray. Losing him in the helicopter crash was heartbreaking,” said Moore. “I had the great pleasure of spending some time with him when we both performed on the 1989 George H.W. Bush Inaugural Concert my wife produced. He was there with Reese/Double Trouble and his brother Jimmy. I’m honored to pay tribute to him.”

Sweet Release is a collection of songs honoring a paramount selection of blues-rock legends. The long anticipated album comes following a career that’s spanned over 50 years and literally hundreds of historical collaborations. Sweet Release also serves as Joe Bonamassa’s inaugural credit as a producer. Bonamassa has long been a fan of Wynans’ work, urging him to create a solo album and championing the project as producer. The album is available for pre-order on reesewynans.com, jbonamassa.com and available on all major music services and will be in stores on March 1st.

The fact is Reese Wynans is everywhere. For a full half-century, Wynans has been the engine-room behind America’s greatest roots music. With Sweet Release, this modest legend has delivered the long-awaited solo album that puts his own name top of the bill and places his world-class talent in the spotlight. “I’ve never had an album out with my name on it before,” he considers, “so I’m very excited. I’d like this record to make people feel happy and celebrate the music. Because that’s what we were doing…”

“Reese inspires me every day,” Bonamassa professes. “He encouraged me and was the heart and soul of the entire session. All the guest artists performed brilliantly and totally brought their best stuff from the very down beat. It was not lost on Reese nor me how blessed we were to work with such talent. All I know is what I know … I love the man… He is as gracious and a gentleman as he is talented and an icon.”

Scan the history books and he’s there on every page: a vital strand of rock ‘n’ roll DNA, present at a thousand cultural flashpoints. Over the last five decades, you might have found him cutting his teeth with the early nucleus of the Allman Brothers Band or taking the stage with Boz Scaggs. Maybe you remember him bringing on the rise of Outlaw Country in Austin with Jerry Jeff Walker or saving the ’80s blues scene with Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame inductees Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble or most recently bringing his blues to the people with Joe Bonamassa. Adding his thumbprint on piano and B3, Reese has worked with the likes of Larry Carlton, Delbert McClinton, Los Lonely Boys, Joe Ely, Doug Sahm, Brooks & Dunn, Trisha Yearwood, Martina McBride, Hank Williams Jr., Buddy Guy – and many more. Not to mention, his roughly 500 live shows with Willie Nelson, unforgettable performance with Captain Beyond for the Sufficiently Breathless record, and three albums with Carole King.

“These songs are windows back into different eras and different times of my career,” explains Wynans. “It’s a collection of the songs I’ve played with musicians in the past, and it shines a light on blues artists that I think need a little bit more recognition.”

In the late-’60s, Wynans was playing alongside future blues-rock royalty in Florida up-and-comers, the Second Coming. “Dickey Betts was one of our guitar players and our bass player was Berry Oakley,” he says. “Duane Allman was in Muscle Shoals at the time and would come down on a weekend and sit in with us. For Sweet Release, we covered the old Les Dudek song, “Take The Time”, which reminds me of being back in Jacksonville during the dawn of that Southern rock era.”

Other songs salute the ’70s, when the keys man could be found flanking Boz Scaggs as the rising songwriter established his reputation on the West Coast. For Wynans, “Sweet Release” of Scaggs’ acclaimed catalogue shone brightest, and decades later, it gives Sweet Release its title track.

Of course, the Sweet Release track listing wouldn’t be complete without a nod to the great Stevie Ray Vaughan. In 1985, Wynans’ world changed forever when the iconic Texas bluesman drafted him into the Double Trouble band for the era-defining Soul To Soul and In Step albums. “It was unbelievable to play on a stage with those guys,” he remembers. “I have to tell you that I hardly ever heard Stevie play a bad note. He was on his game every single night. The Stevie songs on Sweet Release – “Crossfire”, “Say What!”, “Riviera Paradise” and “Hard To Be” – are our tribute to him.”

In 1990, SRV’s tragic death robbed the blues world of an all-time great and Wynans of a cherished friend. But the keys man bravely brushed himself off and walked on, soon becoming one of Nashville’s most in-demand players with credits for headline acts including Lee Roy Parnell, Brooks & Dunn and Hank Williams Jr.

In 2015, the seed of a solo album was planted when post-millennial blues master Joe Bonamassa called up with a tantalizing offer. “He wanted to do a series of shows at Red Rocks where we would feature the music of Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters,” says Wynans. “And y’know, that’s right up my alley. So things went on from there.”

Now, Sweet Release feels like a musician coming home. Wynans was already a familiar face at Ocean Way: the Nashville studio where he’d previously added fairy-dust to endless tracks for other artists. And when sessions began for his own solo album, it was a joy to reconnect with the Double Trouble rhythm section of Tommy Shannon (bass) and Chris Layton (drums) – plus modern guitar great Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Meanwhile, Bonamassa lent his own famed guitar skills to SRV moments like “Riviera Paradise”.

Throughout his celebrated career, the one omission on Wynans’ résumé was that this fabled keys man had never released a solo record – until now. Sweet Release is a glorious collision of stellar musicianship, classic material given fresh mojo, and a glittering roll-call of star guests that confirms the deep respect Wynans commands on the scene.

RFD-TV To Celebrate Hee Haw’s 50th Anniversary With Kornfield Friends During 2-Hour Special Thursday, January 31st 10pm ET / 9pm CT

HEE HAW’S KORNFIELD FRIENDS SET TO APPEAR AND PERFORM ON HUCKABEE FEBRUARY 2ND & 3RD

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Hee Haw’s Kornfield Friends Lulu Roman, Misty Rowe, Jana Jae, and Buck Trent will be bringing a bit of Kornfield Kounty to the stage of TBN’s HUCKABEE on February 2nd and 3rd. The four-some plan to put Gov. Huckabee in the middle of the ‘kornfield’ just as the famed show did throughout the past 50 years. And, if you think the fun stops there…well, guess again, as the cast will take you on a music extravaganza that for sure will bring you to your feet. Tune in Saturday, February 2nd at 8/7c and again on Sunday at the same time. You can find your local TBN channel here or stream the broadcast live here.

“We are really excited to put Governor Huckabee in the kornfield,” says Jana Jae. “Hee Haw was always a family-friendly show with clean jokes for everyone to enjoy, which is what America needs right now.”

In the new touring production entitled Kornfield Friends, Jana Jae has put together a grouping of original cast members from Hee Haw – including Lulu Roman, Misty Rowe, and Buck Trent – to bring a touch of ‘Kornfield Kounty’ to stages around the US and Canada. Whether singing, clapping, laughing or crying, this show has something for everyone and will have the audience involved from the beginning to the end. You can catch The Kornfield Friends on tour, making stops in Suquamish, Washington and The Dalles, Oregon in March.

Lulu Roman served up many laughs and, well, some greasy food at Lulu’s Truck Stop where the food and customer service was usually pretty bad. In addition, Lulu is remembered for being a member of the Hee Haw All-Jug Band and her sitting around on an old-fashioned sofa in the parlor being a deadpan character and commenting. Misty Rowe is known for her “Bedtime Stories” sketch. Rowe would deliver one of her bizarre stories, sometimes a rewritten nursery rhyme. By the sketch’s end, she would deliver a humorous “moral to the story,” giggle, wink at the camera, and blow out the candle which was lit on the nightstand next to the bed where the story was told. Jana Jae, known for her virtuosity on the ‘Magic Blue Fiddle,’ is planning on taking the Hee Haw audience on a musical journey where she performed on the historic television program either as part of the Buck Owens band or as a soloist. Buck Trent is known for his pickin’ and grinnin’ as a featured performer on Hee Haw as well as his years working with Roy Clark.

HEE HAW is only one of a handful of television programs that have had a profound and lasting influence on American culture with many of its skits today being woven into the American comedic fabric. The hit television show, which continues to air on RFD-TV in reruns, take the viewer to their happy place in time with some rural culture, fun humor, and some great country music.

Kornfield Friends is executive produced by Jana Jae and booked by Robert Williams and Whitney Crabtree for WBA Entertainment.
