What would Uncle Si have to say about this?
Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson, the bearded CEO of the family-run Duck Commander duck call business in Louisiana, will appear at Saturday’s grand opening of the new Field & Stream store in Cranberry.
The reality star will sign autographs for 600 people from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
An outdoorsman, hunter and author in addition to being a businessman, Robertson shot to fame when Duck Dynasty premiered three seasons ago on the A&E Channel.
The show follows the doings of the Robertson clan, including Willie’s father, Phil Robertson, the founder of Duck Commander, brothers Jase and Jep Robertson and their families.
And of course, you can’t forget about Uncle Si Robertson.
A Vietnam veteran, the breakout star of the series is known for carrying around a blue plastic cup almost as much as he is for his storytelling and his constant use of the word “Hey!”
The new season of Duck Dynasty premieres at 10 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 14. on A&E. Get a sneak peek of Season Four by clicking on the video above.
