Dukes of Hazzard + Its Connections to Country Music [VIDEO]

Raise your hand if you loved the “Dukes Of Hazzard!” Oh yeah, Tom Wopat (Luke Duke) and John Schneider (Bo Duke) were the heartthrobs of prime-time television from 1979-1985. But the sweetheart was Catherine Bach — and those short shorts!

The Duke family was made up of cousins, Bo ( John Schneider) and Luke (Tom Wopat), along with their cousin Daisy ( Catherine Bach) and their uncle, Jesse (Denver Pyle). The family gave the local Hazzard County Commissioner a run for their money every episode. They set out to fight the system and  corrupt practices of the Commissioner Boss Hogg (Sorrell Booke) and his cooky brother-in-law-Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane (James Best). The show became an instant hit, never failing to win its time slot for the entire run of the show.

Of course, John Schneider in the ’80s released nine country albums, along with a hits album and 18 singles to country radio, including  “Country Girl,” I’ve Been Around To Know,” “What’s A Memory Like You,” and You’re the Last Thing I Needed Tonight.”

Tom Wopat did his fair share of singing himself, performing on Broadway with Bernadette Peters , Susan Lucci, and Crystal Bernard in “Annie Get Your Gun.” Other Broadway performances in “Glengarry Glen Ross,” “Chicago,” “42nd Street,” “Guys and Dolls,” and “I Love My Wife.”

But most of remember these two talented, good-looking guys as Bo and Luke Duke! I found a video on YouTube of the two of ‘em actually singing together, which rarely happened!
