You read that right - there's going to be a 'Duck Dynasty' musical.
The Robertsons, the family the reality show Duck Dynasty centres on, are known for a variety of things including their beards and ability to make offensive and out of date comments at the drop of a hat (or dead duck). However, musical talent does not rank highly on their list of talents.
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.
The reality TV star clearly hasn't learned his lesson. Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson has opened his big mouth again and unleashed the kind of hate-filled spew that saw him suspended from Duck Dynasty late last year. The reality TV star is seen in a new video giving a sermon delivered at his church in West Monroe, Louisiana, on Easter Sunday this year.
Willie & Jep Robertson's Father, Phil, Has Made Some More Untoward Comments About Gay People
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. During the interview in question, the 68 year-old aired his strong homophobic views and linked being gay with bestiality.
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.

When devoted Christian Josh Wheaton begins his college year, he has no idea that he would be facing a huge personal battle when his philosophy teacher Professor Radisson heartlessly tries to force him to throw his religion aside for the sake of the course. While everyone else in room willingly follows instruction and writes God Is Dead on their sheets of paper, Josh finds himself unable to dismiss his faith that easily, incurring Mr Radission's annoyance. With no desire to drop the subject, he has to pass the semester, but in order to do so he must present a convincing argument about the existence of God. If he does not manage to change the atheistic minds of all his classmates, he will no doubt fail the class thus ruining his future plans.

Further big names rally round the controversial television star.
In an outrageous tale of modern morality, Phil Robertson's comments have been defended by more big names in America who are keen to associate themselves with the controversial reality television star. Last week, GQ Magazine released an interview with the Duck Dynasty patriarch in which he aired some rather homophobic and racist views. 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.

'Britney Jean' debuted at No. 4 in the chart, while Brooks scored his ninth No. 1
Garth Brooks released his new box set, Blame It All on My Roots, to an eager fan-base last week, who have managed to see it rise from No. 3 in the Billboard 200 to the No. 1 spot this week. Britney Spears saw her new album debut to a rather lacklustre start on the other hand, as it only just managed to crack the top five, debuting at No. 4.
Brooks is back on top with his latest compilation
Brooks' second box set to reach the top of the charts - his first being 1998's The Limited Series - will have undoubtedly been helped by value Walmart were offering the six disc collection for. Initially being sold for $29.98 before a sale price of $24.96 was introduced this week, Blame It All on My Roots will likely be lining plenty of country fan's stockings come Christmas. The box set sold an additional 146,000 copies this week, enough to see it move two places to the top.
"Hey hunny, remember at Meghan and Charlie's wedding when that guy from Duck Dynasty, Willie Robertson, turned up to give advice?"
Yeah, it's a conversation likely to be had in the future by the friends of Pittsburgh couple Mehgan Cook and Charlie Miller. The bride - dressed in a camouflage dress - and groom wed at the Field & Stream store on Saturday morning (August 17, 2013).
The pair hadn't planned on marrying at the store, but were reportedly eager to meet Willie Robertson, the star of Duck Dynasty.

One of the stars of the hit A&E reality series is being courted by the Republican Party to contest for the Louisiana seat
Willie Robertson, the self-described 'redneck millionaire' star of A&E's hit reality series Duck Dynasty might be the next famous face to make the leap from television to politics. A report from the Washington Examiner published on Monday (12 August) states that the reality star is being courted by some operatives from the Republican Party to potentially become their next big name representative.
The retiring Republican Rep. Rodney Alexander is leaving behind his post in Louisiana and reports state that Robertson is fast emerging as one of the prime candidates for the vacant seat. Alexander will leave his seat in September to go work in Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal's cabinet and a one-off election in September will take place to determine who will replace him, and it looks as though the Republicans have already found their preferred suitor. Should he be chosen as the Republican candidate, Robertson will be competing to represent Louisiana's 5th District, which includes most of the northeastern and central portions of the state, including the cities Alexandria and Robertson's native Monroe.
