‘Dukes of Hazzard’: The Time Tammy Wynette Crossed Paths with Bo and Luke Duke

by Samantha Whidden

Here’s something a chilly (maybe rainy) Sunday afternoon. Check out a clip of the episode where country music singer-songwriter Tammy Wynette crossed paths with Bo and Luke Duke on Dukes of Hazzard.

In the Dukes of Hazzard episode The Hazzardville Horror, Wynette first appeared after getting caught in a speed trap. The Dukes and Cooter listen to her as she sang “Rocky Top.” She then gives Rosco, Cletus, Luke, and Bo a kiss while shaking hands with Daisy, Jesse, and Cooter. She noticeably ignores Boss at first. She eventually tells Boss to call her Miss Wynette before leaving. 

Besides Dukes of Hazzard, Wynette made special guest appearances on various TV shows throughout the years. This includes King of the Hill, Married… With Children, Evening Shade, Top of the Pops, Hee Haw, and Dolly. 

Unfortunately, the country singer-songwriter passed away at the age of 55 on April 6, 1998. Prior to her death, Wynette had around 26 major surgeries and was addicted to pain medication. Her death was eventually ruled as cardiac arrhythmia. 

‘Dukes of Hazzard’ Star Catherine Bach Spoke About the Show’s Legacy Through the Years

During a 2019 interview with Fox News, Dukes of Hazzard star Catherine Bach opened up about how the show still has an impact decades after its premiere. “I’m just so proud of this legacy. We managed to entail people after all this time. This is what the show was about – entertaining people.”

The Dukes of Hazzard castmate revealed that she had done a lot of different things since the show, but her role as Daisy Duke continues to somehow connect with people. “It just makes me proud. And I just love meeting fans. We just want to take Dukes on the road for them.”

Bach then revealed that because of Dukes of Hazzard, she’s notably managed to meet fans but their children as well. “It’s crazy. It’s a history we all share together.”

While also sharing details about what her career was like prior to Dukes of Hazzard, Bach then revealed that her agency at the time fired her and she didn’t go out to an interview for two years. The agency said she was “too exotic” looking.

“I was told ‘We’re never going to make money off you. Aside from doing a movie here and there, we don’t see a television series in your future.’”

In regards to if there was any dates or hookups between her and Tom Wopat or John Schneider, Bach goes on to add, “As much as those guys were the most charming, sexiest friends and men on the planet and women all over just adored them… they were really like my brothers.” As much as I appreciate them, there’s no way I would be, as you say, hooking up with them.”
