Events[edit]

  • January — After 23 years of its tried-and-true formula, the producers of Hee Haw unveil an extensively revamped show in time for the start of its belated 24th season. The show's new urban setting, along with more pop-oriented country guests, is a resounding failure and lasts only through the end of the season. That fall, viewers will be greeted with Hee Haw Silver - a collection of classic shows, with new introductions by longtime host Roy Clark; "Silver" will fill out the show's 25th (and final) season.
  • August 28[1] — The major motion picture Honeymoon in Vegas is released. The soundtrack features several country music performers.
  • October 23[2] — The major motion picture Pure Country is released, starring George Strait, who also sang the soundtrack.

No dates[edit]

  • At age 52, former country star Jonie Mosby (of the 1960s-early 1970s duo Johnny and Jonie Mosby) makes national headlines when she becomes the oldest woman in the United States to undergo in vitro fertilization and successfully bear a child.[3]
