John Richard Schneider (born April 8, 1960) is an American actor and country music singer. He is best known for his portrayal of Beauregard “Bo” Duke in the American television action/comedy series The Dukes of Hazzard (opposite Tom Wopat, Catherine Bach and James Best), Jonathan Kent in the 2001–11 TV series Smallville, and James “Jim” Cryer on the television series The Haves and the Have Nots, created by Tyler Perry.
Alongside his acting career, Schneider has been a singer since the early 1980s, releasing nine studio albums and a greatest hits package, as well as eighteen singles. This total includes “I’ve Been Around Enough to Know”, “Country Girls”, “What’s a Memory Like You”, and “You’re the Last Thing I Needed Tonight”, all of which reached the top of the Billboard country singles charts.
As a four-time chart-topping country artist with 19 albums to his credit, including a whopping 72 tracks within the last year alone, John Schneider could quite realistically be counted amongst the most prolific and recognized entertainers of all time. He’s of course known all the world over for hit singles such as “It’s Now Or Never” (the top charting Elvis Presley cover of any genre ever), “Them Good Ol’ Boys Are Bad,” “I’ve Been Around Enough To Know,” “Country Girls,” “It’s A Short Walk from Heaven to Hell,” “I’m Gonna Leave You Tomorrow,” “What’s a Memory Like You (Doing in a Love Like This),” “You’re the Last Thing I Needed Tonight,” “At the Sound of the Tone,” “Take the Long Way Home,” “Love, You Ain’t Seen the Last of Me” and “Ruffled Skirts” right up to “Walk a Mile in My Shoes,” which he performed on the 2018 finale of Dancing with the Stars after personally duking it out for seven highly heralded weeks.
