Roy Clark, 1969

When I was a kid in Texas, I grew up watching Roy Clark as the co-host (with Buck Owens) of the TV show "Hee-Haw." I always liked Clark better than Owens physically, but I never thought of Clark as a real singer or writer. Just, though, came across this song of his, "Yesterday When I Was Young":



This song reminds me of what I like about some country men. They can be goofy and cut up, but also be the most sensitive and soulful. Thanks, Roy!
