Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The supremacy of Boss Hogg (Sorrell Booke) is challenged by the equally corrupt (and far more dangerous) Boss J.W. Hickman (Larry D. Mann), who has set his sights on taking over Hazzard County. At the same time, Daisy (Catherine Bach) has fallen for a handsome hitchhiker named Earl Beckett (Phillip Brown)--little suspecting that Earl is Hickman's bomb-throwing chief henchman. This week's victims of Boss Hogg's "celebrity speed trap" are The Oak Ridge Boys, who sing "Leaving Louisiana in the Broad Daylight" Originally slated to air on February 20, 1981, this episode was ultimately bumped forward to January 9.
