Willie Robertson claims to have "started the sophisticated gene" in his family.

Robertson and his clan have taken catch phrases to an all-time high each Wednesday night during their reality show Duck Dynasty on A&E.

Fans of the popular show who purchase a ticket to see Willie and his son, John Luke, at the Alcorn County Fair "Kids and Family Day" held at the Crossroads Arena will be eligible hear some of the hilarious sayings up close.

Those who purchase a ticket before 5 p.m. Aug. 19 will have their name entered into a drawing for a fan meet-and-greet and exclusive photo session with Willie or John Luke.

"There will be two separate meet and greets," said Arena General Manager Tammy Genovese. "Twenty names will be drawn for Willie and another 20 for John Luke."

Ticket prices for the 5 p.m. event on Sept. 21 are $78 for the first five rows, $53 for the next five rows, $33 for remaining floor seats and $23 for riser seating. All seats are reserved and include a service charge. Tickets purchased online are an additional $1.50 per ticket. Those wishing to have their tickets mailed will be charged $5 per order.

As of Tuesday, 794 tickets have been sold for the event.

The West Monroe, La. family has gained a cult following since the series debuted in March of 2012. A&E's most-watched series features the Robertson clan living the American dream while operating a thriving business and remaining true to their family values.

Last year's Season 3 finale was the highest-rated telecast in A&E history as 9.6 million viewers watched the show.

Willie, the third of four sons of Phil and Kay Robertson, is the CEO of Duck Commander – a company that makes products for duck hunters and was started by Phil in 1973. Willie and his brothers, Jase and Jep, will be joined by older brother, Alan, in Season 4. The new season is slated to premiere Aug. 14.
