John Schneider of Dukes of Hazzard fame was in Tyler this past Friday (Oct. 5), and stopped by our studios for a chat before his concert later that evening.

I will admit I had to keep calm when he first arrived, because I was a big fan of the Dukes of Hazzard show and watched the original programming, not reruns. Yes, I am telling my age and yes, I had a poster of him on my wall.

I've never been that close to a well-known actor and wanted to make sure I didn't freak out. However, I had no need to worry because John was was so laid-back and easy to talk to that I was able to relax and focus on his visit.

John chatted with our own Buddy Logan about his roles as Bo Duke in the Dukes of Hazzard, Johnathon Kent in Smallville, Judge Jim Cryer in The Haves and the Have Nots and his most recent role as a Dancing With the Stars competitor.

I really enjoyed John's point of view in explaining how his acting roles helped shape not only his career, but his personal life as well. Enjoy!
