Country Music Success Stories | Episode Sixteen - Interview with John Schneider
I’ve always expected great things and I’ve asked people to do the same. It’s a mindset. If you expect bad things to happen, they will. I don’t think anybody would disagree with that. Therefore, if you expect great things to happen they will.
- John Schneider
Music Row is just a road in Nashville, but it is paved with the hopes and dreams of just about every man or woman who ever walked it…hoping that someday, somehow, they’ll make it in Music City.
John Schneider is one of those people who always knew he would make it, and he did. As Bo Duke on the Dukes of Hazzard, he decided to use his talents as a singer and was able to have a number one TV show and number one songs, back to back. In total, John released 9 studio albums, 18 singles, 11 top 10 songs and 4 number one smash hits. An actor throughout his childhood and teenage years, John wrote and directed the final episode of The Dukes of Hazard and then jumped back into acting with leading roles on Smallville, the Haves & Have Nots, Dr Quinn Medicine Women…and more. Valuing his ability as a storyteller above all his many talents, John is a gifted filmmaker, too. In this episode, John Schneider proves that having your face on a lunchbox is pretty cool, but that was 40 years ago, and he’s still got plenty of films to make and stories to tell.
