NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Jon Hager, who performed in the musical
comedy duo The Hager Twins on "Hee-Haw," has died. He was 67.
Sam Lovullo, who produced "Hee-Haw" and was a friend of
Hager's, said Hager was found dead in his apartment Friday morning.
He was found in bed and apparently died in his sleep.
Lovullo said Hager had been in poor health and was depressed
since his identical twin brother, Jim Hager, died in May 2008.
The twins were in the original cast of the syndicated TV show,
which debuted in 1969 satirizing country life with a mixture of
music and comedy. Both were guitarists and drummers.
