The Robertson Family Calls It Quits on “Duck Dynasty” Series

After 11 seasons as one of the biggest reality TV shows on A&E, the Robertson family is calling it quits on their Duck Dynasty series.

According to a release, the family and network wanted to give their loyal fans a long farewell with one last season followed by a series of holiday specials. The current season will run through Jan. 18, 2017. Following a small hiatus, the final seven episodes will start back up on March 1, with the series finale airing on April 12.

The reality series, which follows the lives of the Louisiana-based Robertson family and their family-owned duck calling business, made stars of the family from it’s inception in 2012. The main cast included brothers Phil and Si, Phil’s sons Jase, Willie and Jep, Phil’s wife Kay and Willie’s wife Korie, along with their families. The show quickly became the most watched reality series in cable history and the No. 1 series on A&E.

If you recall, the Robertsons endeared themselves to the country audience with their 2013 Christmas album, Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas, by including vocals from some of country’s finest, including George Strait, Luke Bryan, Josh Turner and Alison Krauss.

The family informed their fans of the end of the show with an announcement that aired in the beginning of the final premiere episode Wednesday night (Nov. 16). Check out what the Robertsons had to say, in their own special way.

Luke Combs Gets 11th Number-1 with “Forever After All”

Congrats to Luke Combs – his song “Forever After All” is sitting at number-1 on the Billboard Country Airplay Chart!

This is Luke’s 11th consecutive number-1 song – and the 6th track off of his deluxe album What You See Ain’t Always What You Get to capture the top spot.

After hitting number-1 Luke says, “It’s pretty crazy having this song go number-1, being the sixth number-1 off this album. It’s incredible, and it’s all thanks to the fans. We have a really great team – from management, to label, to band and crew, and we’ve been lucky that country radio has embraced us, which means the world to me. I’m forever grateful to everybody that’s helped get my songs out there. I just wanna say thanks to everybody, and I never take it for granted.”
