Surprising, 30 August 2003
Author: Paul-308 from USA

I was surprised to see a John Schneider special a mere one year after the debut of his series,Dukes of Hazzard,but the growing popularity of the show and "Bo" himself must have been the primary reason.It started off with John driving the General Lee down a dirt road and dropping it off at the studio garage because he would be gone for a while,"going back home".He then took his rental car to a fairgrounds in his home state.Somehow along the way he bumped into Ray Charles (who sang Georgia) and Barbara Mandrell and sang songs with them,giving his usual Bo Duke enthusiasm the whole time.When the hour was over,he drove back to the studio to pick up the General again where he drove back down that same dirt road again.I dont believe many people saw this special,which was kind of a shame as it was decent family fare.The only thing that seemed to be missing was Luke Duke Tom Wopat to tag along.However,I dont find his singing as near good as Johns so I guess it could have been worse.
