Hee Haw the Musical is Hitting Broadway Next Spring!

In the most surprising news of the weekend, us pickers and grinners will finally have a great reason to head to New York City! Word just got out that you will soon get to see the classic country television show Hee Haw the Musical on Broadway! Rather than the variety music and sketch comedy we’re used to, it will focus on the story of one particular pair of Hee Haw characters, a wiley sexpot from Kornfield Kounty and her boyfriend whose wedding gets put on hold when she decides she wants to see the world first. The show is being put together by Steve Buchanan, head of Opry Entertainment, with a script by Robert Horn and music by Shane McAnally and Brandy Clark. Many of the original characters made famous from the TV show appear in the musical, including Grandpa Jones, Misty Rowe, Lulu Roman (love her!) and Junior Samples.
