The Alexandria Town Talk (out of Nashville) wrote a piece about Phil and Miss Kay’s speaking engagement last night in Lipscomb.
One thing of note I found interesting in the article is a mention of Si Robertson’s booking fee. Celebrities and athletes are always compensated for speaking engagements. I know Tim Tebow charges around $50,000 per event (at least he was a few years ago during the height of his popularity). Putnam County (in Tennessee) got a peek at the prices when they tried to book Si Robertson for August’s county fair. The asking price was $29,000, then rose to $40,000, media there reported, but Si still didn’t accept.
As Duck Dynasty’s following grows and grows, members of the family will start charging more and more for speaking engagements.
