Billy was - and still is - a clown. He was only on Hee Haw for one season, the ill-fated 1992 season (after the show's format change). However, his down-home country humor is still much like what we loved on the original Hee Haw. Known to many as "Elwood Smooch," his crazy antics are making people laugh nightly in Pigeon Forge, TN at the Ole Smoky Hoedown. Not only can you see Elwood Smooch there, but you can hear Billy Baker sing beautiful old gospel songs, and the house band is a group of talented musicians, many from the East Tennessee/West Carolina region. Click here to visit the Ole Smoky Hoedown online, or see it yourself in Pigeon Forge, in the Great Smoky Mountains. I've seen it, and I can personally recommend it if you're planning a trip to the area.
E-mail me if you know of more Billy Baker information.
