Three Words To Bring America Together: “Hee Haw Revival”

5th Annual TV Land Awards - Show

Ryman Hospitality Properties is the parent company of Opry Entertainment, the owners of the Grand Ole Opry and one of the producers of the TV show Nashville. According to the Nashville Business Journal, they have research showing that one out of every four tourists come to downtown Nashville because of that TV show. So, trying to build on that, they’re thinking about reviving the Hee Haw TV show (there may be some that don’t understand the gravity of that statement) – Hee Haw was a variety TV show that ran from 1969 to 1992. Ask any old person. You can currently catch the original Hee Haw on RFD-TV.

To that, I say, “YES!”

And (IMO) here’s how it SHOULD work. The new hosts would be Blake Shelton and Brad Paisley. (The Voice has been a good run for you Blake, but come on – it’s time for your own show) Get some of the former Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders to be the new “Hee Haw Honeys”. And because it’s 2017, it would probably be a good idea to add some “Hee Haw Hunks” for balance. Bring in Larry the Cable Guy, Bill Engvall, Jeff Foxworthy and Ron White. And then add guest stars and whoever’s got a hit country song that week. Done.

Here’s the story.

Here’s how it used to look:
