    Sad week for Country Music. A day after the worst-rated CMA awards show since 2010, legendary musician Roy Clark has died at age 85.

    Maybe it’s time for country to get back to its roots?

    I saw that he had died on another forum just earlier. It’s sad to see such an amazing musician and entertainer with such a sense of humor pass on. R.I.P.  Roy

    He was an incredible musician, on multiple instruments. Really a groundbreaker in many respects. My hat is off to Roy!

    Sad to see him go.  I guess most of us, from many generations, grew up with Roy Clark!  Always an inspiration, on any instrument.

    Loved HE HAW.  Roy made that show work. Got in a couple of local TV news  stories last night unexpectedly about Roy at Jana Jaes  class.

    Oh yea I forgot to mention Roy lived in Tulsa and did a lot for the area. He had a elementary school named after him in Tulsa.

    Not surprising he’d be generous with his home town.  Seems like a nice guy.
