Kenny Price, the corpulent Elrod on television's "Hee Haw," has died after suffering a heart attack. He was 56.
The country singer and guitar player died in a hospital in Florence, Ky., Tuesday.
Price, who weighed more than 240 pounds, was known as the "Round Mound of Sound." He was a lifelong resident of Florence, south of Cincinnati in northern Kentucky, and had been a star and host of "Midwestern Hayride," a Cincinnati TV show, before joining "Hee Haw" in 1973, two years after the show left national television and went into syndication.
