Several generations of “Dukes of Hazzard” fans will gather in Nashville, Tennessee on Saturday, June 8th to celebrate “Dukes of Hazzard Fan Fair” with the entire cast of the show. The event, which coincides with the CMA Music Festival, will be centered at Cooter’s Place on McGavock Pike across from the Grand Ole Opry.
“It’s not often that we can all get together like this,” says Ben Jones, who played the sidekick mechanic “Cooter” on the ever popular international hit. “But it is a thrill for us and a big kick for the fans when we do!”
John Schneider (Bo), Tom Wopat (Luke), Catherine Bach (Daisy), James Best (Rosco), Sonny Shroyer (Enos) and Rick Hurst (Cletus) will join Jones for the day’s events, which will culminate with a Hazzard Hoedown concert at the Nashville Palace featuring the whole cast onstage with Cooter’s Garage Band.
“We haven’t all been together in Nashville since our DukesFest celebrations in 2006 and 2007. They were the largest fan gatherings for any film or television show ever. One year we had over 100,000 folks show up at the State Fairgrounds. This festival is intended to be smaller and a little more laid back than that, so hopefully everyone will get all those autographs!”
The Music Valley area around Cooter’s Place will host a Hazzard County Car Show, with scores of General Lees, Hazzard Police Cars, Daisy Jeeps, and Boss Hogg’s Cadillacs. There will be a “Hazzard Youngun’s Area with children’s activities and lots of things to jump up and down on,” Jones adds.
“So its cars and stars and music”, says “Cooter”. “Just like Hazzard County and a perfect family event for a Nashville weekend. See y’all there!”
