Shreveport Times reports that Duck Dynasty members and 3,000 fans set a new record in the Guinness’s Book of World Records. Willie and Korie Robertson, Jase and Missy Robertson, along with their three children and Uncle Si attended a fundraiser for the Salvation Army of Southwest Florida, called, “The Call: Faith, Family & Facial Hair.
The Robertsons and over 3,000 fans were given Duck Commander duck calls. At the set time, everyone blew their duck calls for two minutes. Phil Robertson, no relation to the "Duck Dynasty" Robertsons, documented the event for the Guinness Book of World Records. Because there was no previous record of people blowing duck calls, he said that they would only need 250 people to make the record. Instead, he documented that 3,028 people blew their duck calls at the same time.
Phil described the event as, “It was fantastic! It sounded like a giant swarm of cicadas from the stage!”
There were vendors selling "Duck Dynasty" items. It's reported that the money they raised was donated to The Salvation Army.
The Robertsons of "Duck Dynasty" spent some time talking about how their lives are built on a religious foundation. They aren't ashamed to declare that God comes first, then family, then ducks in that order.
Jase had this to say about his wife, Missy. “We built our relationship on God. We stayed pure before our wedding night. For those of you here who don’t think that’s possible, I’m here to tell you, it’s possible!”
The Robertsons have always included religion in their show. At the end of every show, the family gathers around the table. Someone says the blessing over the food before the family begins eating. Willie and Korie gave a testimony about their faith in God in the movie, “God’s Not Dead.” The show dipped in viewers when Willie’s dad spoke out about homosexuals and how they fit in the Bible. In spite of the smaller numbers of people who watch "Duck Dynasty," A&E hopes that the numbers improve when the show premieres on June 11.
Congratulations "Duck Dynasty" and fans for setting the record.
