His big break came when he won the role of Bo Duke on "The Dukes of Hazzard" (1979) on CBS from 1979-1985. He auditioned for the role pretending he was a genuine country boy. He had a weeks growth of beard and held a beer can claiming he was from Snellville, Georgia. He later became a very successful country singer and had several hit songs including "I've Been Around Enough To Know" and "Country Girls."

  • Lied about his age to get the role of "Bo" on _"The Dukes of Hazzard" (1979)_ (qv).
  • According to a Season 1 commentary of _"Smallville" (2001)_ (qv), John was approached by some kids who said, "Hey, you're Jonathan Kent!" To his relief, it was the first time that he was recognized as someone else other than "Bo" from _"The Dukes of Hazzard" (1979)_ (qv).
