The musical is based on a book written by Willie Robertson and his wife Korie.

The reality TV star clearly hasn't learned his lesson.

In his speech, Robertson refers to the comments he made in a controversial GQ interview back in November that drew such an outcry that A&E were forced to temporarily exclude the duck hunting businessman and Robertson patriarch from programming.

The 41 year-old will be headed to the nation's capital on Tuesday night (Jan 28th) after he was formerly invited by newly elected Louisiana Rep. Vance McAllister.

The fall-out from Phil Robertson's bigoted remarks have clearly affected the show as ratings reach their lowest point
Duck Dynasty returned for its fifth season on Wednesday, 15 January, night and did so with expectations held high for what was so often considered America's favourite reality series. The latest season's premiere episode did not wield the same kind of success that producers were hoping for however, as viewer figures for the premiere episode came in well below expectations.

At the start of the show's fourth season in 2013, before it was common knowledge that Robertson family patriarch Phil was a homophobic racist, Duck Dynasty was drawing in more than 20 million viewers per episode. This week, when the show returned for a fifth season, it only managed to draw in 8.5 million viewers at its peak, more than 12 million fewer than the amount that tuned in last year. The show suffered particularly in the much-sought-after 18-24 demographic, which made up around half of the show's viewership, with 4.2 million tuning in.

The video, which surfaced on YouTube shows the bearded duck hunter giving a speech and imparting some of his own "river rat counselling" upon the audience. When advising on what to look for in a woman, Robertson encourages seeking out underage girls. "Make sure that she can cook a meal. You need to eat some meals that she cooks. Check that out," he said. "Make sure she carries her Bible. That'll save you a lot of trouble down the road. And if she picks your ducks, now that's a woman!"
Robertson's homophobic remarks have split America, with his reinstatement drawing even further criticism
Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson will return to the show following a short suspension period, owing to his off hand comments about homosexuals in a recent interview with GQ. His comments shocked many, yet to others it was a breath of fresh air to hear some rampant bigotry in mainstream media (other than Fox News) and the actions taken against Phil following the publication of his remarks was met with with ardent opposition and calls that his freedom of speech being breached. Following this opposition, Phil Robertson has been reinstated to his role on Duck Dynasty.

Obviously, his reinstatement has only appeased a certain number of people, with those outraged by his comments once again red in the face as he seemingly side-steps retribution for his archaic views. In a statement released to the Hollywood Reporter by A&E, the network tried to explain their reasoning behind Phil's initial suspension and then his sudden return. In the statement, the networks claims that it's "core values are centered around creativity, inclusion and mutual respect," going on to describe the network as having a "strong sense of integrity and deep commitment to these principles."

Since Robertson's words have been published, many have risen up in an angry tide to criticise the duck hunter leading to network A&E suspending the 67 year-old from the show.

However, an alarming number of big name politicians and religious campaigners have emerged from the fray to lend their support. Though Robertson issued what is effectively an apology, saying in a statement: "I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity. We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other," the star has refused to retract his incendiary remarks.
