You read that headline correctly.
Uncle Si from “Duck Dynasty” will be getting a spin-off show featuring him and his country career. It’s true.
“Matter of fact, I just did 10 episodes of a new show,” he said during an interview on Fox News. “One of the episodes is me going to Nashville to get into the music business. I’m really going to do that OK? I have a musical career that I’m trying to start right now.”
His genre of choice, obviously, is country.
“I sing country music,” he said. “George Jones, Merle Haggard, the old guys. Trying to bring real country music back.”
If you still don’t believe this will happen, we have proof.

Women want Uncle Si as a husband
Hey, maybe he can make this music thing work. Duck Dynasty fans love Uncle Si, and he’s gotten 20 marriage proposals from the show’s fans.
He’s 68 years old and has been married for over 45 years, but fans still ask for his hand in marriage. His wife, Christine, has chosen to stay out of the limelight and mostly off the show, so viewers don’t always remember that he is married, according to his book, Si-Renity: How I Stay Calm and Keep the Faith.
As he’s traveled around the world for speaking engagements and for meet-and-greets, women ask to be his wife left and right.
“Over the past few years, several women have proposed to me during my speaking engagements and other public appearances,” he writes in his book. “My brother, Phil, can’t understand why women find me so attractive. He says, ‘I’d understand it if they wanted to marry Willie because he has all the money. I’d even understand it if they wanted to marry Jase because he’s Willie’s right-hand man. But no, they want to marry — that goat.’”
The number of women, he says, is between 15 and 20.
“They think I’m single because I’m never shown with my wife,” he said. “Everybody asks me once they found out I’m married, ‘Why isn’t Christine on the show with you?’ The woman has a lot better sense than the rest of us. She don’t want any part of it.”
Robertson told a story where a woman proposed to him.
“I was at an event in Arkansas and it was outdoors so I was sitting there and the sun is shining down. Then all of a sudden, the sun was blocked out and I looked up and somebody tall was standing and casting a shadow over me. It was a lady standing there and she said, ‘Well, I drove for 450 miles, you ready?’ I said, ‘Ready for what?’ She said, ‘To marry me.’ I said, ‘Well we have a problem here, Houston.’ She said, ‘What’s that? I said, ‘Well, I got a fine little redhead that I’m married to back home that might not take kindly to that.’”
Good luck, Uncle Si.
