Country Stars Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, Chris Young & More Remember Roy Clark

Roy Clark died on Nov. 15 at the age of 85 due to complications from pneumonia at his home in Tulsa, Okla. If anyone in the country realm could be termed “multimedia star,” the amiable singer/guitarist fit that bill. He won the CMA Entertainer of the Year honor in 1973, copped Grammy awards for his instrumental prowess and co-hosted the long-running Hee Haw variety show from 1969 to 1992. Roy became a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 1987. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2009.

Many country stars shared their remembrances of Roy on social media, and we’ve included some of them below.
