A longtime Tulsa resident, Clark has released 34 studio albums and 68 singles since the 1962 debut release, “The Lightning Fingers of Roy Clark.” His work has earned him entertainer of the year awards from the Academy of Country Music and Country Music Association, a Grammy, a membership in the Grand Ole Opry, and induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Throughout his career Clark has recorded numerous hits, including “Yesterday When I Was Young,” “Honeymoon Feeling,” “The Tips of My Fingers,” “Thank God and Greyhound You’re Gone” and “Come Live with Me.”
Clark’s career has taken him beyond the stage and into millions of households in numerous television roles. He served as the host of “Hee Haw” for 25 years, was a regular guest on “The Beverly Hillbillies” and became the first country music artist to guest host “The Tonight Show” for Johnny Carson.
Clark and his wife Barbara moved to Tulsa in 1974, and four years later Roy Clark Elementary School in the Union Public School District was named in his honor. Clark was inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame in 2000. In 2011, the OMHOF named Clark Oklahoma’s Music Ambassador for Children.
