KNOWLEDGE BANK Minimize
As the Destination Marketing arena becomes increasingly complex, DMOproZ strives to provide an easily accessed Knowledge Bank for DMO pros around the world. From White Papers to cutting edge Research to our recommendations on books to make you think, videos to encourage your creativity and blogs to keep you current.

And, we want this to be a two-way street. When you see a great resource that would be a benefit to the DMO collective, shoot it our way and we'll post it up for your peers.

Roy Clark

5bedad191cce8.imageFor most, he was best known as the host of the cheesy, country variety show "Hee Haw." From 1969 to 1997, the show was a mainstay on American TV, at times attracting 30 million viewers, and made Roy Clark a household name.

But, he was so much more than a campy, guitar-wielding TV star. Not unlike Glen Campbell, he was one bad-ass picker, equally adept at guitar and banjo. He was in high demand as a session musician, won the CMA's "Instrumentalist of the Year" award three times and scored a Grammy for best instrumental with "Alabama Jubilee."

Roy departed terra firma earlier this week. And, on this Music Friday, we honor his memory with one of his hottest performances, "Ghost Riders in the Sky" from a Branson show in the '90s.

He and Glan are likely having a blast, playing this weekend in that club in the Great Unknown.
