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.”
