CBS 7's Tatum Hubbard got to sit down exclusively with Willie Robertson today where he talked about faith, family and ducks – in that order.
You know him as the CEO of the Duck Commander empire. Along with his family members, he also stars in the most watched cable television reality show in history.
“I was surprised but I'm used to it by now. It show how popular the show is and I wouldn’t change that for anything.”
These days he's also busy speaking to audiences across the country - sharing a message that seems to resonate with people from all walks of life. A message that based firmly in their Christian faith
"You don’t have to like us but you do have to respect us and our business success. For folks who want to know why we've been successful, maybe we can help them. We've got the answer. This is what worked for us. We don't shove it down people's throat. We're not the Pat Robertson show. We're our Robertson show."
Robertson's charm and authenticity wowed the more than 6,000 people who came through Crossroads Fellowship today as he talked about Phil, Miss Kay, Jace and uncle Si. He realizes this show creates a unique platform for his message.
"We really want to reach out and pull some different people in. We want to show a different light to Christianity. You don’t have to look a certain way. It tickles us with our beard and hair. My brother calls it facial profiling.”
Whatever it is, it's taken a nation by storm showing that “happy, happy, happy” can be a way of life.
So what's next for Duck Dynasty? They are currently filming the next season. Willie’s daughter Sadie has a line of prom dresses coming out that are "daddy approved" and their Christmas album "Duck the Halls" comes out on October 29th.
