Roy Clark (April 15, 1933 - November 15, 2018) was a highly acclaimed and veteran country/pop singer with a comedic flair who was also a virtuoso guitarist, banjo player, and fiddler highly skilled in a wide variety of music genres. He became famous beginning in the late 1960s both as a performing artist and as the longtime co-host with Buck Owens of the hugely popular variety show, "Hee Haw" (1969-1997), which propelled him to stardom. Best known for his hit rendition of Charles Aznavour's poignant "Yesterday, When I Was Young" (1969), which became his greatest crossover success, his long string of hits on the Country charts from 1963-1989 also includes the chart-topping "Come Live With Me" (1973).
In addition to his work on "Hee Haw," Roy Clark appeared on "The Beverly Hillbillies" and many other TV shows and also co-starred and performed in such movie comedies as "Uphill All The Way" (1986).
