It would be impressive enough for an actor to star in a single show that changed the course of television history with iconic characters and cross-generational appeal, but the fact that John Schneider’s done exactly that on a consistent basis for at least four decades makes him nothing short of legendary. Whether it’s playing Jim Cryer on Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots, immortalizing Jonathan Kent on Smallville and Bo Duke on The Dukes of Hazzard, the man of many hats is synonymous with success and one of most ubiquitous faces in all of pop culture. He’s also been seen in everything from the movies Smokey and the Bandit (Burt Reynolds), Felicity: An American Girl Adventure (Shailene Woodley), Sydney White (Amanda Bynes) and Christmas In Tune (co-starring with Reba McEntire) to regularly popping up on Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, Nip/Tuck, The Secret Life of the American Teenager and even showing off some of his own fancy footwork on Dancing with the Stars.
Add in a simultaneous career as a five-time chart-topping country artist with over 20 albums to his credit, including well over 100 new songs since returning to the recording studio in the 2016, alongside writing, directing and starring in a multitude of movies with executive producer Alicia Allain under their own John Schneider Studios/Maven Entertainment banners, and he could quite realistically be counted amongst the most prolific and recognized entertainers of all time. Just ask the most than 10,000 fans who travel annually to their 58-acre compound in Holden, Louisiana for “Bo’s Extravaganza” to swap stories, score autographs, browse memorabilia, take in a classic car show featuring the actual vehicles seen on screen and catch concerts by the most enormous names in music, such as Schneider and lifelong admirer Kid Rock. johnschneiderstudios.com
