Duck Dynasty’s Alan Robertson, who only joined the show last year, boasted a scruffy beard and joked that he had had to take a measure to prove he was a Robertson.

Alan Robertson also took credit for a spike in Duck Dynasty traffic when he led his parents’ vow renewal ceremony at the start of Season 4.
His wife Lisa said that the couple’s decision to leave pastoral ministry and join their extended family had been a tiring but rewarding decision.
Alan Robertson’s new look also has him eating his words, considering he was previously committed to a clean-shaven alternative.
“We all used to cut them off. But now, since they are such big stars and their beards are in their contracts, they have to keep them a certain length,” he said of Willie, Phil, Si and the other Duck Dynasty men.
Duck Dynasty’s Alan Robertson will join his uncle Si Robertson in the Louisiana Methodist Children’s Home fundraising event in Ruston on Friday, May 9.
According to the press release, all proceeds of the event will benefit the Children’s Home.
Alan and Si Robertson will share the stage as they entertain the crowd with stories of faith, family and their life on television’s Duck Dynasty.

Sometimes referred to as the “beardless brother” because he’s the only clean shaven Robertson, Alan joined the cast of Duck Dynasty for the premier of the fourth season, an episode which broke several cable television ratings records. Previously a local pastor for twenty years, Alan Robertson joined the show and the family business so he could expand his ministry and share the word of God with a larger audience.
“I’m so excited Alan is joining our event,” said Rick Wheat, CEO of Louisiana Methodist Children’s Home.
“Alan and Si make a great team and I expect we’ll all hear an entertaining message about the importance of family and faith. I can’t wait for the event and I’m encouraging everyone to join us for a fun evening.”
The program begins at 6:30 p.m. at Louisiana Tech University’s Thomas Assembly Center. General admission tickets to the program with Alan and Si Robertson are $25 for adults, $15 for youth/students, and $12.50 each for groups of 15 or more.
There are also tickets remaining to the special “meet and greet” reception with Alan and Si Robertson beginning at 5:00pm. The reception includes a professional photo with Si and Alan Robertson, silent and live auction, refreshments, and reserved seating at the main event. Tickets to the reception are $275 each or $500 for two.
Sponsorships are still available and companies are encouraged to consider sponsoring the event or purchasing a block of tickets for employees and customers. Current event sponsors include WildHorse Resources, Brennan Dodge, Bank of Ruston, Argent Financial, Princeton Place, Arbor Lakes, Leslie Lakes Retirement Center, Red Peach Radio, The Radio People, Graphic Industries, Children’s Home board member Jeanne Browning, and Aramark.
Duck Dynasty’s Alan Robertson says his family isn’t going to back down from defending their biblical principles and, if anything, they plan to be even bolder than before after a series of controversies surrounded his father Phil since last month.
In a recent interview with The Christian Post, Alan Robertson said: “We basically stood with dad, and I think he has the right to express his biblical views, as well as his opinions.
“Obviously now, I think A&E is on board with that as well. They reinstated him, which is a good thing. I say now we just try to make a great television show and move forward. We’re going to continue to talk about the Bible and try to help people, like we always have. That really never was in danger of not happening, and all this does it make us more bold to talk to people.”
Alan Robertson says his family isn’t going to back down from defending their biblical principles
Last month, after A&E announced that Phil Robertson was suspended indefinitely due to pressure from LGBT activist groups for anti-gay comments he made during GQ magazine interview, the family stood together and announced that they were unwilling to continue Duck Dynasty reality show without the family’s patriarch. Nine days later, A & E announced that Phil Robertson was back on, with Season 5 set to air on January 15, and taping for Season 6 to get underway.
Alan Robertson also said: “Dad is a good, solid Bible man, and so are the rest of us. His views of sharing that haven’t changed and ours haven’t either. The biblical message is not always a popular message. There have been many people throughout history who’ve stood up for God and said what God needed them to say, and it didn’t always mean they were popular because of it.”
Duck Dynasty’s Alan and Si Robertson will join a number of other celebrities to welcome a new Field & Stream outdoor store in Cincinnati.
Alan Robertson and Uncle Si will be at the new Field & Stream store at Buttermilk Towne Center on Sunday, November 1st. Their visit is part of a three-day event to celebrate the opening of the second-ever Field & Stream retail location.
Two months ago, Willie Robertson surprised a couple at Field & Stream wedding in Pennsylvania
The weekend will also feature visits from Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green and country music star Dustin Lynch as well as several outdoor industry experts and activities.
The weekend’s events will kick off with a performance from Dustin Lynch at 9:30 a.m. Friday and a 10 a.m. ribbon cutting.
Duck Dynasty’s patriarch Phil Robertson and his family have joined premier poster artist Michael Hunt of Louisiana and New Orleans Saints’ Coach Sean Payton for two redneck masterpieces.
Michael Hunt created the posters “Faith, Family, Football and Duck Hunting”. But the Robertsons and Sean Payton signed limited editions of one featuring a camouflage fleur-de-lis as the centerpiece and second featuring a camo football helmet.
“It’s a cool idea – faith, family, football and ducks,” said Phil Robertson.
Phil Robertson, who preceded NFL Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw as a quarterback at Louisiana Tech University in the 1960s, said he still loves the game.
“I watch football all the time,” he said.

“It’s one of my five sources of TV entertainment – The Weather Channel, occasionally Fox News, <<Gunsmoke>> reruns and the NFL.”
“And <<Duck Dynasty>>,” his son Alan Robertson said.
Phil Robertson’s wife, Miss Kay, said she also enjoys football and calls herself the Saints biggest fan.
“I’m the only true fan,” Miss Kay Robertson said.
“I’ve been with them 30 years.”
She also recalled watching her young husband play at Tech.
“I loved it when he did good, but it made me mad when people bad-mouthed him if he threw an interception,” Miss Kay Robertson said.
Phil Robertson and his son Alan said Sean Payton and Saints quarterback Drew Brees plan to join the Robertsons on a duck hunt this winter.
“Payton said he’s never tried duck hunting, so we’re going to initiate him,” Phil Robertson said.
Part of the proceeds of the project will be donated to Katrina’s Angels, a national volunteer effort to make a difference for communities and people affected by federally and state-declared disasters.
Duck Dynasty has a lot of Americans riveted to their TV sets and a lot of pundits scratching their heads about how this reality-based sitcom about an eccentric, tight-knit Louisiana clan of bearded, bandanna-ed men, along with their wives, children and family-business employees, came to captivate a nation.
The A&E’s reality show drew 11.8 million viewers on its Season 4 premiere night on August 14.
For a lot of the show’s Christian fans, it’s become a rare place on a mainstream cable or broadcast network where they can see characters openly expressing – and living – their faith in a positive context. While most of the TV time follows the Robertsons navigating their daily lives of manufacturing duck calls at Duck Commander and managing marriages, parenthood and the quirks of each other’s personalities, each episode ends with the family gathering at dinner and saying a prayer.
In real life, faith is central to the Robertson family, since beardless eldest son Alan Robertson– who was off-camera for Duck Dynasty‘s first three seasons.
Alan Robertson has been pastor of White’s Ferry Church of Christ in West Monroe, Louisiana, for 20 years
Alan Robertson has been pastor of White’s Ferry Church of Christ in West Monroe, Louisiana, for 20 years, and the rest of the clan is active in the congregation.
He also leads weekly voluntary devotional hours at the company headquarters.
With the on-screen arrival of Alan Robertson in Duck Dynasty Season 4, faith may come even more to the forefront.
In an interview with CBN’s 700 Club, Alan Robertson talked about making the decision to join the TV side of the family empire.
“My high-school years were just terrible, and it was all a secret life – running around and drinking and cutting up. So, I was at the worst possible place – I was hiding in plain sight. I was in the church, but I wasn’t a Christian. I wasn’t living for Christ.”
He also spoke about traveling the nation with his father Phil Robertson to preach: “I call us the feather and the sledgehammer. I come in, and I get people laughing. I get their tickle-bone, because I’m kind of the humor guy.
“And then dad comes in with a sledgehammer – boom!– you know. <<This is what God has done for you. This is what our nation needs>>. Boom, boom, boom!”
Alan Robertson explained: “I really feel like God had prepared us for such a moment as this. And when America needs some family to say, <<Hey, we can make mistakes, you know, we can come from nothing – we can have all these things now, but ultimately none of it matters except that we’re saved, and we’re going to be in heaven with Christ forever>>.”
His wife, Lisa Robertson, was also interviewed in the segment, and here’s her thoughts on taking their message beyond the physical congregation: “To have a great church is good. But there is people out there that’s not ever going to darken the doors that we have here. And they may not ever darken the doors of any church building.
“And so, if we can give them a little taste of Christianity, a little taste of God, but in a fun way, to tell them that just because you’re a Christian doesn’t mean that you can’t have loads of fun and laugh all the time and just enjoy what God’s given you.”
Duck Dynasty’s men are well known for their growing long, bushy beards, except one of them – new cast member and eldest son Alan Robertson.
Alan Robertson, 47, is a former minister who left his church to join Duck Dynasty in Season 4.
However, don’t expect him to follow that last tradition.
“I don’t want to get stuck with that look, I mean, are you kidding me?” the clean-shaven Alan Robertson said in an interview on The 700 Club.
Alan Robertson’s wife, Lisa, concurs with his feelings: “You know, when there’s things crawling out of your beard or whenever you’ve got food left from lunch or dinner, I don’t know, that just kind of grosses me out.”
He also opened up about his past, before he was a deeply faithful pastor. In fact, he was quite the wild child in his teen days.
Alan and Lisa Robertson stayed out of the Duck Dynasty spotlight before because of his ministry, but now they hope to bring their faith and values to the show’s millions of viewers
“My high school years were just terrible and it was all a secret life – running around and drinking and cutting up,” Alan Robertson admitted.
After graduating from high school, things spiraled even more out of control when Alan Robertson moved to New Orleans. But after a year, he realized he needed to shape up – and returned home to the loving embrace of parents Phil and Kay Robertson. He recommitted to his faith and Phil Robertson baptized him in the river behind their house.

“Ultimately none of it matters except that we’re saved and we’re gonna be in heaven forever with Christ.”
Alan Robertson is the Duck Dynasty’s beardless one and the newest member of the cast.
Alan Robertson, who made his debut on Duck Dynasty‘s Season 4 premiere last week, is explaining in an interview on CBN News’ Friday edition of The 700 Club why he left his job as senior pastor of a large church to join the show.
The oldest son of Phil and Miss Kay Robertson ministered at White’s Ferry Road Church of Christ for more than 20 years. He explains that some early teen craziness led him to the church early on.
“My high school years were just terrible and it was all a secret life – running around and drinking and cutting up,” Alan Robertson tells CBN News White House Correspondent Jennifer Wishon, who traveled to West Monroe, Louisiana, to interview him and his wife, Lisa.
“So I was at the worst possible place – I was hiding in plain sight. I was in the church but I wasn’t a Christian. I wasn’t living for Christ.”
After he graduated, Phil Robertson told him he either had to shape up or move out. Alan Robertson moved out and went to New Orleans, where he found more trouble. After about a year, he realized he needed to move back home.

Alan Robertson made a commitment to follow Jesus Christ and Phil baptized him in the river behind their house.
And now Alan and Lisa Robertson, who do a lot of the family’s scheduling, have made a decision to be on-camera.
“I really feel like God had prepared us for such a moment as this and when America needs some family to say, <<Hey, we can make mistakes, you know. We can come from nothing – we can have all these things now but ultimately none of it matters except that we’re saved and we’re gonna be in heaven forever with Christ>>. “
Lisa Robertson notes: “To have a great church is good. But there is people out there that’s not ever going to darken the doors that we have here. And they may not ever darken the doors of any church building. And so if we can give them a little taste of Christianity, a little taste of God, but in a fun way to tell them that just because you are a Christian doesn’t mean that you can’t have loads of fun and laugh all the time and just enjoy what God’s given you.”
Alan Robertson adds: “We’re fairly young. If God gives us a lot more years on the Earth who knows where we’re gonna go from there in terms of what we’re gonna do?”
Just don’t expect Alan Robertson to grow a beard. Ever.
“I don’t want to get stuck with that look, I mean, are you kidding me?”
Plus, Lisa Robertson likes her husband clean-shaven.
“You know, when there’s things crawling out of your beard or whenever you’ve got food left from lunch or dinner, I don’t know, that just kind of grosses me out,” Lisa Robertson said.
Duck Dynasty‘s Phil Robertson is not afraid to loudly proclaim his religious beliefs, including their stance against abortion.
A new video surfaced Tuesday of Phil Robertson delivering an impassioned speech slamming abortion.
“From the time you started inside your mother’s womb, Thomas Jefferson had it right,” he said.
“You have the God-given right to live, for crying out loud.”
Phil Robertson continued by holding out a finger.
“You’re this long! C’mon! You have a God-given right to live. And of all places, inside your mother – what in the world happened to us?”
Phil Robertson, a former standout football quarterback at Louisiana Tech, has been an ardent believer since the ’70s. During that time, the Duck Dynasty patriarch “was headed south” – drinking, fighting, mistreating his family. When his wife, Miss Kay, kicked him out, Phil Robertson turned to religion.
Phil Robertson is not afraid to loudly proclaim his religious beliefs, including their stance against abortion
Though Phil Robertson feels free to let loose his opinions in a speech, he told the Wall Street Journal in June that his family purposefully plays down their faith on Duck Dynasty.
“We can’t get into spiritual matters on the show too much,” he said.
“That’s a little much for the production company. They say, you know, it’s not the Pat Robertson show.”
The Robertson family doesn’t hide their beliefs and it’s possible religion will play a greater role this season, with oldest son Alan – a former minister – joining the cast. In fact, before the season began, Alan Robertson said he hoped to spread his message to a bigger audience thanks to the popularity of Duck Dynasty.
Alan Robertson said of leaving his pulpit: “What I do for our church – you see, it’s a pretty good-sized church – impacts a lot of people. But because of my association with the show, I’ll get to minister to a lot more people.”
Duck Dynasty stars have spent much of the summer doing the rounds on the speaking circuit, rubbing shoulders with everyone from Tim Tebow to Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal to Sarah Palin.
They conservative Louisiana family was just celebrated at Rick Warren’s church for a congregation-wide Duck Dynasty day – spreading a message founded on their Christian faith, promoting family values and, of course, the right to bear arms.
Phil Robertson, the family patriarch who is the family’s camo decked evangelist, joined forces with his oldest son, Alan, a Church of Christ minister to headline Warren’s event on July 21.
Warning members against “political correctness trumping Biblical correctness”, Phil Robertson preached multiple messages to the thousands who turned out for the festivities – which included a beard-growing contest.
The stars of the popular show, among cable’s most watched programs, still run their multi-million dollar hunting goods company and have expanded their empire to produce everything from camo-emblazoned Christian devotionals, cigars, onesies bearing the Duck Commander logo and duck calls that retail from $9.95 to $179.95.
Phil Robertson, who began the duck call manufacturing operation from meager beginnings in 1972, appears on Duck Dynasty with his wife, Miss Kay, and his hilarious brother with a sweet tea addiction, Uncle Si.
Three of Phil Robertson’s four sons – the straight talking Jase, Willie (who followed his father as CEO of the company) and the youngest, and indulged, Jep – have all appeared on the show since Season 1.

The eldest Robertson, Alan, is the only non-bearded one in the mix and has just left his work at the local church to help his family manage their new fame.
Describing himself as the “normal one,” Alan Robertson will be joining Duck Dynasty Season 4 that premieres August 14.
The self-proclaimed rednecks, with a lovable loathing for yuppies, have not allowed their stardom get to their heads but have become some of the most sought after stars for engagements far and away from their homebase of Monroe, Louisiana.
This May, Willie Robertson – the family’s third born who runs the Duck Commander company – rubbed shoulders with GOP darlings at the NRA convention, and was even rumored to be under consideration to join the gun group’s board.
Then in July, Willie Robertson was the star at LifeWay’s Main Event, a men’s conference sponsored by the Southern Baptist convention.
Father of five Willie Robertson, 41, will return to Nashville in August to deliver an address at the Cornerstone church, where an estimated 10,000 are expected to turn out.
Though Willie Robertson gets a lot of attention on the show, the other Roberston family members can still bring out a crowd.
Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee, invited Phil, Kay and Si Robertson to speak at their annual Don Meyer Evening of Excellence fundraiser in April.
In 2010, Tim Tebow had spoken at the event and the school was doubtful they could ever “top the buzz of Tebow” but the Robertsons did.
The event sold out so quickly, they added another talk and then a third talk in order to accommodate the demand.
People from 17 states purchased tickets and flew in from across the country to join the 15,000 who turned out to hear the Robertson trio banter on stage.
It was the biggest event ever in the school’s 125 year history.
Though much of the event focused on the hilarious antics of the family business, the talk closed with a spiritual message from Phil Robertson – where he presented the Gospel and invited attendees to accept Christ.
High says that the family’s Christian beliefs are a non-negotiable when they agree to speak.
“I’ve never seen them speak anywhere where there is not a specific, Christian faith element,” Phil Robertson said.
Back in April, Si Robertson told The Tennessean that though the show runs on A&E, the cable network isn’t the one in charge of the future.
“The Almighty is running this thing and he’s gonna take it where he wants it to go,” Si Robertson told The Tennessean, in between sips of iced tea.
The new season of Duck Dynasty will feature the wedding-vow renewal ceremony of patriarch Phil and Miss Kay Robertson.
The event will take place during the premiere of the show’s Season 4 on August 14.
The episode, which is entitled Till Duck Do We Part will feature Phil Robertson, dressed in his finest camouflage pants and bandana, renewing his wedding vows to Miss Kay, his wife of 49 years.
Miss Kay, who was only 16 when she wed Phil Robertson the first time around, wore a white dress and veil, while the couple’s sons all donned suits for the fancy affair.
Duck Dynasty Season 4 will feature the wedding-vow renewal ceremony of patriarch Phil and Miss Kay Robertson
According to A &E’s description, the entire Robertson clan will be present at the festivities, including Phil’s wacky brother, fan favorite Uncle Si.
Everyone comes together to plan a surprise wedding for Phil and Kay Robertson, setting up a special ceremony on their land, which the whole family attends.
Si Robertson distracts Phil and Kay by taking them on a “trip down memory lane” to different places that were meaningful in their relationship.
The high school sweethearts will say “I do” again underneath an altar of flowers and animal antlers, in a ceremony officiated by their unbearded pastor son, Alan Robertson, who will make his debut this season.
According to A & E, Duck Dynasty was the highest-rated non-fiction series on cable last year. Nearly 8.5 million people tuned in on average to watch the hi-jinks of Louisiana’s most famous bearded brothers.
Duck Dynasty Season 4 premieres on August 14 at 10 p.m. on A & E.
Duck Commander Phil Robertson and his son Alan will be at Saddleback Church on July 20 and 21 to discuss how following Jesus has changed their lives as part of the megachurch’s Follow Me series.
The sermon series has brought influential American preachers and leaders to the Southern California church to share their experiences as disciples of Jesus Christ. Phil and Alan Robertson’s message to the church will align with the topic of following God and will feature their take on being a believer.
Alan Robertson, who will lead the sermon, is the senior pastor at White’s Ferry Road Church of Christ in Louisiana and recently decided to join his family as the newest cast member for Duck Dynasty Season 4 that will premiere on August 14. He recently told the New York Post that his intention is to spread the Gospel beyond the members of his own congregation.
“What I do for our church – you see, it’s a pretty good-sized church – impacts a lot of people, but because of my association with the show, I’ll get to minister to a lot more people,” Alan Robertson said.
“Any person that’s an evangelist, that’s what you want to do, so I had to give this up for something possibly bigger.”

Duck Dynasty has reached a wide fan base ranging from outdoorsmen to Christians, and its ratings beat out American Idol during its third season, which broke the network’s viewer ratings. Oftentimes, the cast members display their Christian beliefs in the episodes and are seen at the end of each program engaging in prayer.
Throughout the course of three years, the Robertson family has gained fame, and plenty of attention since their show began, which is something that Alan admitted he may not be fully prepared for.
“My children are grown, but all of my brothers’ children are teenagers now, so how is this crazy world going to impact them?” he told the Post.
“We think about John, Luke and Sadie, who are such a big part of the show and they’re teenagers, you know? They need to be just normal teenagers. We pray about that.”
Along with the success of their reality show, the family has become a household name through other ventures as well.
Phil Robertson released a new book earlier this year, Happy, Happy, Happy: My Life and Legacy as the Duck Commander, in which he details his life, including his wild early years and his take on parenthood, God, and of course, duck hunting. Other members also have books on the market, including Miss Kay Robertson, the matriarch of the clan.
If fans still cannot get enough of the Duck Dynasty crew, they will have the opportunity to vacation with them on the Duck Commander cruise during a four-night sail to the Caribbean next summer. Country star and American Idol winner Scotty McCreery will also join the cruise to provide onboard entertainment.
Duck Dynasty Season 4 is set to premiere on Wednesday, August 14.
It was earlier reported the new season will bring with it a new family member: Phil Robertson and Miss Kay’s eldest son, Alan Robertson.

Alan Robertson is a preacher who happens to be clean shaven. The beard-free reverend said he plans to use his role on the massively popular reality show to spread the good news of the gospel.
“Because of my association with the show, I’ll get to minister to a lot more people,” Alan Robertson said.
“Any person that’s an evangelist, that’s what you want to do, so I had to give this up for something possibly bigger.”
Before Season 3 came to a close, there was some concern about whether a Season 4 would see the light of day. Contract negotiations between the Robertsons and A&E reportedly stalled when the cast members demanded raises. But the network must have decided it was worth shelling out the $200,000 each of the Robertsons is said to have demanded. After all, the Season 3 finale caused the show to smash its own record for highest-rated telecast in A&E history with a whopping 9.6 million viewers.
Duck Dynasty Season 3 left off in Hawaii, as Willie Robertson fumbled and bumbled his way through a Robertson-style family vacation. But the clan is back in Monroe, Louisiana, now, doing your average duck hunter things – like having Scotty McCreery perform at a “Redneck Red Carpet” party.
Although the Duck Dynasty family, a close-knit clan who own and operate a thriving duck call and decoy business called Duck Commander, may be in the limelight, there are still a few things you might not know about the Robertsons.
Here’s a list of the top 10 fun facts you didn’t know about the Robertsons – Phil, Miss Kay, Uncle Si, Jase, Willie, Jep and their wives:
1. Jase, Willie and Jep Robertson actually have a fourth brother, Alan (Al). Alan Robertson is the oldest of the bunch, and may make a special appearance in the upcoming Season 4 of Duck Dynasty.
2. Miss Kay Robertson’s favorite meal to make is fried frogs, and apparently there are two ways to cook them. Jase Robertson recommends soaking them in lemon juice first, and Miss Kay says you can fry them or sauté them in butter to make them extra delicious.
3. Phil Robertson recently ran into his old football friend, Terry Bradshaw, at the airport. When the two men attended Louisiana Tech University, Phil Robertson played first string quarterback ahead of Terry Bradshaw.
The self-proclaimed rednecks of Duck Dynasty are everywhere, from the country music awards, to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner
4. Contrary to popular belief, the tea Uncle Si always drinks is unsweetened.
5. The Duck Dynasty clan appeared in Darius Rucker’s Wagon Wheel music video, a remake of the popular Old Crow Medicine Show song.
6. Jase, Willie and Jep’ Robertsons wives actually do love their husband’s beards, and prefer them to the “preppy look” the men used to have.
7. In addition to his huge truck seen on the show, Willie Robertson drives a camouflage BMW.
8. Miss Kay isn’t the only “Miss” of the family. Everyone calls the women of the show by their first names, and adds “Miss” at the beginning. It’s the proper Southern thing to do.
9. The Duck Commander warehouse actually has a store in it. People travel from all over to see the Robertsons, and sometimes hundreds of people are lined up outside at a time. The family claims to know which state is having Spring Break based on all the license plates in the parking lot.
10. Uncle Si Robertson’s favorite way to eat dove is with cream cheese, jalapenos and wrapped in bacon, which is probably another Miss Kay specialty.
Fans of the hit reality series Duck Dynasty are going to see the only clean-shaved Robertson brother featured on the show’s next season.
Alan and his wife Lisa Robertson will be joining the cast for the upcoming 4th season.
Alan Robertson, Duck Commander’s oldest son, likes to joke about his beardlessness as he’s chosen to stay behind the scenes and off the cameras.
He likes to think of himself as the original, after Phil Robertson of course. Alan has spent the past 22 years as a pastor but recently rejoined the team, with his primary responsibility being the one who schedules the cast’s seemingly endless public appearances.
Alan Robertson said: “It’s hard ’cause my thing has kinda been the different one, to not have to do that. The feeling is that once you go the long hair and the beard there’s no going back from that.”
Via the family’s official business they describe Alan Robertson this way: “Alan is the oldest son of the Duck Commander. He grew up hunting and fishing and helping build the foundation of the family business in the 1970’s & ’80’s. Back in the day, he and Phil would travel around Louisiana and Arkansas selling duck calls to stores right out of the truck! The sales pitch back then was the same as today: <<These calls are the best ‘cause they sound just like a duck!>>.
Alan Robertson and his wife Lisa join Duck Dynasty cast for Season 4
“He left the duck call business when he received the call for full time ministry in 1988 and now serves as a senior pastor in West Monroe, LA. Alan is still a part of the family’s commitment to spreading the gospel of Christ through their love of hunting and the great outdoors. He calls himself a Jacob in a family of Esaus.”
Alan Robertson also stated: “It’s like a sasquatch in reverse, cause you know, instead of the hairy sighting, I’m like the clean sighting.”
In a recent piece on 20/20, Willie Robertson stated that before the show Duck Commander sold around 60,000 of their patented duck calls a year. Now he says that number is way over 300,000. Taking that kind of growth into consideration, it’s obvious the Robertsons can use all the family help they can get – beard or not.
Via the Duck Commander Twitter page, a great photo of the ladies of the Duck empire was posted which includes Lisa Robertson.
A&E has reportedly been leery about including Alan Robertson because of how identifiable the beards are with the brand. But like the family says, it’s “Faith, Family, Ducks”.
Duck Dynasty’s bearded brotherhood is the most popular family in reality TV right now but one member of the family has been left out, until now.
Who could have predicted that excess facial hair would become a phenomenon with nearly 4 million viewers?
“Used to, we would just have the beards during hunting season. That was the tradition where that got started. Then we would shave after hunting season. Now we’re filming, so you just have it year round,” said Jase Robertson.
The Robertsons say beards are good for business. It makes the family more recognizable for all of the Robertson boys, except one.
“Can’t you tell I look like a Robertson? Just imagine, you wonder what they look like underneath the beard. This is it,” said Alan Robertson, the oldest son of Duck Commander Phil.
Alan Robertson is the oldest of the four Robertson children. He likes to call himself the original.
Oldest Robertson brother Alan, who isn’t featured on the show, stands over his younger brothers Willie, Jep, and Jase
He spent the past 22 years as a pastor until just recently, when he decided to join the family business, where he helps schedule appearances.
Alan Robertson never really got into this whole beard thing.
“It’s like a sasquatch in reverse, cause you know, instead of the hairy sighting, I’m like the clean sighting,” he said.
The show’s network, A&E, is reportedly leery about adding a brother who doesn’t have a beard, saying it could take away from some of the mystery.
It has been that way for most of the company’s projects in the past.
“We went to Wal-Mart to sell them Duckmen 9 and Alan didn’t have a beard and they said the buyers said, <<Y’all are gonna have to put one on him>>. I was like, <<What?>> So that’s photoshopped,” said Missy Robertson, Alan’s sister-in-law.
“It’s hard ’cause my thing has kinda been the different one, to not have to do that,” said Alan Robetrtson.
“The feeling is that once you go the long hair and the beard there’s no going back from that.”
Do not be surprised if you see a little more skin in the coming seasons with the introduction of the abnormal brother of the Robertson clan.
Alan Robertson, the oldest son of Duck Commander Phil Robertson, is not featured in A&E’s hit reality series Duck Dynasty.
He grew up hunting and fishing and helping build the foundation of the family business in the 1970’s & ’80’s.
Back in the day, Alan and Phil Robertson would travel around Louisiana and Arkansas selling duck calls to stores right out of the truck! The sales pitch back then was the same as today: “These calls are the best ‘cause they sound just like a duck!”

Alan Robertson left the duck call business when he received the call for full time ministry in 1988 and now serves as a senior pastor in West Monroe, Louisiana.
He is still a part of the family’s commitment to spreading the gospel of Christ through their love of hunting and the great outdoors.
Alan Robertson calls himself a Jacob in a family of Esaus.
After 20 years in the pulpit, Alan Robertson stepped down as one of the 1,200-member congregation’s ministers. The clean-shaven member of the clan left to help run the family business, which has exploded with growth since Duck Dynasty premiered.
Alan Robertson works for the company on occasion, but is not featured on their reality show, Duck Dynasty.
All Duck Dynasty’s lovable, sweet tea-swilling couples are anchored by long-standing, rock-solid marriages.
The Robertson couples – from patriarch and matriarch Phil and Kay on down to their sons and daughters-in-law – are definitely having and holding, for richer and for poorer , in sickness and in health, for as long as they both shall live.
Check out how these happily married couples met, long before they were featured on hit A&E reality series Duck Dynasty.
Phil Robertson and Miss Kay
The high school sweethearts started dating when Kay was just 14 and got married in 1966 when she was 16. They were practically an old married couple when Phil Robertson attended Louisiana Tech on a football scholarship; he even started ahead of the now-legendary Terry Bradshaw and turned down an offer to play in the NFL to concentrate on duck hunting.
“They had me there when they first got to Tech, so he was also a little different than the modern athlete,” their oldest son, Alan Robertson, told ESPN.

“He already had a family at that young of an age. I think that hunting, some of it was just providing for us. So I think that changed a bit of his attitude and allowed him to walk away a little bit easier, you know.”
Phil Robertson and Miss Kay’s love story hasn’t always been happy, though. In the ’70s, Phil Robertson was “headed south” – running a bar, drinking, getting into fights.
In his autobiography, The Duck Commander Family, son Willie Robertson recounts how his father Phil kicked out his family in a drunken rage, then begged Miss Kay to come back.
“What kept me there? What made me stay with him? It was words my grandmother said: <<One man, one wife, for one life>>,” Kay Robertson told Sports Spectrum.
Phil Robertson turned to religion to change his life, and Miss Kay forgave him. They’re still together more than 45 years later!
