Huge Turnout for Jase Robertson Book Signing

By  | 

Meridian, Miss. Hundreds gathered in Meridian for a book signing featuring a well known reality TV star.

People lined up both outside and inside the Lifeway Christian Store. Some even dressed the part. It was all for a chance to see Jase Robertson from the A&E reality hit "Duck Dynasty." His new book "Good Call: Reflections on Faith, Family, and Fowl" has only been out for a few weeks, but fans couldn't wait to have him autograph the new book.

"He's a really nice guy," Kimberly Smith says. "You can tell on the show he's a really nice guy. I finished his book last night and he's just a really good person. You can just tell."

"It was very exciting," Jennifer McMillan says. "This is our first, I guess TV superstar I guess you can call him, that we've ever gotten to meet. He was very nice, very likable, we love the show."

The book mainly focuses on Robertson's life prior to becoming part of "Duck Dynasty." He talks about how his relationship with his father was rocky growing up, but says that his faith ultimately helped improve things. Robertson also discusses his relationship with his wife Missy and how they have managed to keep that relationship strong for more than two decades. Of course, there is the show itself.

"You know, people like to laugh," Robertson says. "And we have a good time together because I think we got the big things in life down pat. We forgive each other, love each other, you know we have hope in the afterlife. It's the kind of things people gravitate towards."

While Robertson is back on the tour bus and meeting fans elsewhere, these fans in the Queen City will not forget this day for a long time to come.
