Some may not want to admit they used to watch Hee Haw, but back in the 70s and early 80s you watched tv with your parents as a family, because everything was clean and wholesome. I wonder what happened?
Grandpa Jones ~ 100% Cherokee ~ Born Louis Marshall Jones in Henderson County, Ky., to sharecroppers, Jones was a singer, banjo picker, song writer and later in life television star on “Hee Haw.” Grandpa Jones was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1978. He never retired and died in 1998.
Minnie Pearl, shown here with Grandpa Jones, was born Sarah Ophelia Colley Cannon on October 25, 1912. She was an American country comedienne who appeared at the Grand Ole Opry for more than 50 years (from 1940 to 1991) and on the television show Hee Haw from 1969 to 1991.
