As we mentioned in a previous post, Phil Robertson’s new book Happy, Happy, Happy: My Life and Legacy As The Duck Commander was released today. So naturally Phil is making the rounds — visiting with ABC News, Good Morning America, Hollywood.com and Fox News. Here’s a snippet from his interview with FOX News. I found the first two questions interest. Below is a link to the entire article.
FOX411: Why do you think ‘Duck Dynasty’ is so popular?
Phil Robertson: It’s hard to figure but it’s been a while since shows like ‘The Waltons,’ Andy Griffith. This is a 21st century version of one those type of shows. The only thing I can figure is something about the closeness of the family. I think somewhere in there is why the show is resonating. That’s the only thing I can think of.
FOX411: You write about how you put Miss. Kay through years of hell with your drinking.
Robertson: You are correct. I was disappointed having to say that. But that’s what happened. God-fearing people, once they’re saved from their sins, they don’t mind talking about it. They say, ‘I was caught up in the 60’s.’ I was caught up in same thing, sex drugs and rock and roll. But I finally battled my way out of it. Trust me the first 28 years, no Jesus. The last 38, I’ve had a relationship with Jesus and whoa! Is life a lot better.
