Phil, Kay, Jase & Missy Robertson, hosts of the K-LOVE Fan Awards and stars of A&E's hit TV show Duck Dynasty, help operate the family's business making products for duck hunters. The show features the Louisiana bayou family living the American dream as they operate a thriving business while staying true to their family values and lifestyle.
Since the show's premiere, the Robertsons have been busy being America's favorite big, bearded, camo-clad family. Despite their modest lifestyle and homes in the backwoods, this close-knit family has made a fortune on duck calls by turning a backyard business into a multi-million dollar sporting empire. But for Willie Robertson, the company's CEO, running a family operation is tough when all your employees live one distraction at a time and find any excuse to leave the warehouse. They may be living the rags-to-riches American dream, but they're just as busy staying true to their rugged outdoorsman lifestyle and southern roots. Of course, in this household, even the most ordinary family affair is met with a special Robertson twist of downhome practicality and witty sense of humor. Day to day life in the bayou may be mundane for some, but for the Robertsons, every day brings a new adventure (Source: A&E's Duck Dynasty website).
While Jesus and family values play a huge role in the Robertson family today, that wasn't always the case. "I was into 'sex, drugs and rock 'n roll,' as they say. Some guy with a Bible came into a beer joint that I was running and he wanted to talk it over. I basically ran him out of the place," explains Phil Robertson on LifeWay's YouTube page. "I looked him back up, and my life was going south in a hurry. So at 28, I finally sat down and listened for the first time in my life to the story about of Jesus of Galilee...Not only did He have the power to remove my sin, but He had the power to energize dead, cold flesh so it can stand back up on the earth again."
