Country Stars Respond To Roy Clark Death

Legendary country music singer and co-host of "Hee Haw" Roy Clark is dead.  He died yesterday due to complications from pneumonia at his home in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  Clark was 85.  His skills as a guitarist and banjo player in the late 1950s and early '60s earned him a spot in the County Music Hall of Fame.  He was also a member of the Grand Ole Opry. 

 The country-music world is reacting to the death of Roy Clark.  The legendary country music singer and co-host of "Hee Haw" died yesterday at the age of 85.  Keith Urban tweeted his first Country Music Awards memory "is sitting on my living room floor watching Roy Clark tear it up."  Travis Tritt tweeted Roy Clark's guitar and banjo picking was an inspiration.  Charlie Daniels said Clark was a fine musician and entertainer.
