Clean-shaven Alan Robertson joins his backwoods brethren on ‘Duck Dynasty’

Alan Robertson — who has described himself as a “Jacob in a family of Esaus” — is joining the rest of his family on the cast of “Duck Dynasty.”
The New York Post reports:

It’s Sunday morning, and Alan Robertson, dressed in all black, steps up to the wooden pulpit at White’s Ferry Road Church of Christ in the small town of West Monroe, La. The crowd of nearly 1,500 erupts into applause.
His dad, Phil, mom, Kay, and Uncle Si sit in their usual spots in the back of the massive church, while his younger brother, Jase, and sister-in-law, Missy, sit up front in the third row.
His family is easy to spot, especially for fans of the mega-successful A&E reality show “Duck Dynasty.” Phil, Si and Jase are dressed in head-to-toe camouflage, with their long, scraggly beards resting on their chests. Si removes his baseball cap for the service, but Phil leaves his dark sunglasses on, as they both sing and bob their heads to the hymns.
The Robertsons gather together regularly for church, but for years they’ve been split over the show that’s made them famous to 9.6 million viewers. Alan has never appeared on “Duck Dynasty” — he’s the only brother of the four who’s avoided the spotlight.
Until now.

Read the full story.
In The Christian Chronicle’s “Faith, family and ducks” story last fall, Alan Robertson hinted at a possible future role on the show:

As for himself, Al said he wouldn’t mind appearing on the show in the future — preferably without a beard: “My idea was, jokingly, that they have me come in and demand to know why I’ve been left out of the family.”

    I have enjoyed watching the video of Alan Robertson talking about the Robertson family. I have to comment on the show “Duck Dynasty” I can not miss a show, I am guessing you could say ” I’m glued to the t.v. when it comes on every week. It is great to see a family that is real, with a message for all of us. This is “FAMILY!” at the end of each one to see all who sits down at the table and bow their heads as brother Phil leads in prayer. A father and mother who share the values of a husband and wife to their sons and wives mainly showing the love for each other and so much more to the grandchildren. I
    have laugh and yes cried because this is how I was raised it brings such wonderful memories back. Thanks for the article and indeed the video. Many blessings to the Robertson Clan.
    Sister in Christ,
