The Hee Haw Collection *Review




Hee Haw is a traditional American variety show. Great nostalgia with this collection! I desire safe, fun entertainment that my whole family can watch. Nothing like the great Hee Haw for my country kids. This show even predated me, and I remember my parents talking about it and us watching it when it would come on. This is really a great show idea for your parents or grandparents for Christmas as well.

"It has an undeniable sense of "just kidding" joy to it, which remains infectious...and country-western fans will love seeing vintage performances by Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette, Merle Haggard, Conway Twitty, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Donna Fargo, Charlie Rich, Dottie West and 
Hank Williams Jr."
