John Schneider and Tom Wopat will be back in Nashville this weekend! The 1980’s television sensation”The Dukes of Hazzard” cast is set to celebrate their 40th anniversary in Nashville.
Schneider, who plays Bo Duke, and Wopat, who plays Luke Duke, will be with their other cast members. Ben Jones (Cooter,) Catherine Bach (Daisy Duke,) Rick Hurst (Deputy Cletus) will also be among the cast to join the auspicious event. Jones will host the event in his “Cooter’s Place” at 2613 McGavock Pike in Nashville.
The event is set to start on Friday. Arrangements have been made to have the cast pose for pictures and sign for autographs throughout the weekend. Saturday will be the day to air the first episode of “The Dukes of Hazzard.” It will be held at the Troubadour Theatre.
Following that, there will be a cast concert at The Nashville Palace. The lineup would include Whey Jennings, the grandson of Waylon Jennings. This will be special for Jennings, because his grandfather was part of the original ensemble. Waylon Jennings narrated “The Dukes of Hazzard,” as well as written and sang the show’s popular theme song. As of the moment, admission is free. However, there will be a fee to meet the actors and attend the screening and concert.
Schneider vocalized excited words for the event.
“It will be fun. I’m going to try to be there Saturday until about 4 p.m., drive and do the concert and then drive back and be there Sunday. I want to see the first episode. […] We have not been on the same stage together here other than the occasional Dukes event since Tom hosted ‘Prime Time Country’ (in the ‘90s). I think it would be a lot of fun.”
