Roy Clark

Roy Clark, the Country Music Hall of Fame guitar player, was always proud of his connection with the music products industry. In addition to the products he endorsed over his long career, Roy helped design his signature model for Heritage Guitars. Roy also was close to many in the music publishing industry ever since he wrote the first of many successful method books for both guitar and banjo. The popularity of these books' were boosted with the creation of the TV program, Hee-Haw, which Roy co-hosted for over 20 years. Even on the day of his interview for the NAMM Oral History program, a fan approached Roy and thanked him for his role in teaching him to play music and for the years of enjoyment he and his family  had as a result.
