Clark became something of an ambassador for country music, not just in the US but internationally, appearing in locales as far-flung as the Soviet Union, where he did a groundbreaking tour in 1976. He was 14 when he got his first guitar - a Christmas present, according to the AP - and within a year was playing in a square-dance band with his father, who also played the guitar, fiddle and banjo. He also performed regularly in Las Vegas.
In October 2000, he was inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame, and he was actively involved with school children who attend the Roy Clark Elementary School in Tulsa, Okla.
Clark was a staple on both radio and TV throughout the 1960s, performing on almost every variety show of that era.
Clark and Owens worked together for years, but they had very different feelings about "Hee Haw". Clark told The Associated Press in 2004 that "Hee Haw" was like a family reunion.
