The world of country music is in mourning after an iconic singer passed away on Thursday. According to reports, Roy Clark died at the age of 85.
"A rep for the singer told Fox News Clark died on Thursday at his Tulsa, Okla., home due to complications from pneumonia. Clark was the "Hee Haw" host or co-host for its entire 24-year run, with Buck Owens his best-known co-host. The country music and comedy show's last episode aired in 1993, though reruns continued for a few years thereafter," reported Fox News.
Clark was an iconic singer. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2009. He played the guitar, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, harmonica and other instruments. One of his most popular songs can be seen in the video below.
"Clark was a guest host on 'The Tonight Show' several times in the 1960s and 1970s when it was rare for a country performer to land such a role. His fans included not just musicians, but baseball great Mickey Mantle. The Yankees outfielder was moved to tears by 'Yesterday When I Was Young' and for years made Clark promise to sing it at his memorial — a request granted after Mantle died in 1995," according to Fox.
Please join us in praying for Roy's family during this difficult time. We ask that God's mercy and grace would comfort them as they mourn his loss.
