|NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Hee Haw’s Kornfield Friends Lulu Roman, Misty Rowe, Jana Jae, and Buck Trent will be bringing a bit of Kornfield Kounty to the stage of TBN’s HUCKABEE on February 2nd and 3rd. The four-some plan to put Gov. Huckabee in the middle of the ‘kornfield’ just as the famed show did throughout the past 50 years. And, if you think the fun stops there…well, guess again, as the cast will take you on a music extravaganza that for sure will bring you to your feet. Tune in Saturday, February 2nd at 8/7c and again on Sunday at the same time. You can find your local TBN channel here or stream the broadcast live here.
“We are really excited to put Governor Huckabee in the kornfield,” says Jana Jae. “Hee Haw was always a family-friendly show with clean jokes for everyone to enjoy, which is what America needs right now.”
In the new touring production entitled Kornfield Friends, Jana Jae has put together a grouping of original cast members from Hee Haw – including Lulu Roman, Misty Rowe, and Buck Trent – to bring a touch of ‘Kornfield Kounty’ to stages around the US and Canada. Whether singing, clapping, laughing or crying, this show has something for everyone and will have the audience involved from the beginning to the end. You can catch The Kornfield Friends on tour, making stops in Suquamish, Washington and The Dalles, Oregon in March.
Lulu Roman served up many laughs and, well, some greasy food at Lulu’s Truck Stop where the food and customer service was usually pretty bad. In addition, Lulu is remembered for being a member of the Hee Haw All-Jug Band and her sitting around on an old-fashioned sofa in the parlor being a deadpan character and commenting. Misty Rowe is known for her “Bedtime Stories” sketch. Rowe would deliver one of her bizarre stories, sometimes a rewritten nursery rhyme. By the sketch’s end, she would deliver a humorous “moral to the story,” giggle, wink at the camera, and blow out the candle which was lit on the nightstand next to the bed where the story was told. Jana Jae, known for her virtuosity on the ‘Magic Blue Fiddle,’ is planning on taking the Hee Haw audience on a musical journey where she performed on the historic television program either as part of the Buck Owens band or as a soloist. Buck Trent is known for his pickin’ and grinnin’ as a featured performer on Hee Haw as well as his years working with Roy Clark.
HEE HAW is only one of a handful of television programs that have had a profound and lasting influence on American culture with many of its skits today being woven into the American comedic fabric. The hit television show, which continues to air on RFD-TV in reruns, take the viewer to their happy place in time with some rural culture, fun humor, and some great country music.
Kornfield Friends is executive produced by Jana Jae and booked by Robert Williams and Whitney Crabtree for WBA Entertainment.
