The Robertson's family of 'Duck Dynasty' are already insanely popular on their hit show and with their successful line of "Duck Commander' duck calls.

Duck Dynasty on A&E has grown in popularity over the past couple of years and the season three finale was watched by more than 9.6 million people.  Now the show will welcome in a new cast member for season 4 that will air later this year.

The Robertson's son Alan will join the crew for the next season of Duck Dynasty. Louisiana Radio Network reported this morning that he will join the cast next season.

He doesn't look like the others.  What I mean by that is that he doesn't have long hair and a big bushy beard.

Here is a little about Alan Robertson:

Alan is the oldest son of the Duck Commander. He grew up hunting and fishing and helping build the foundation of the family business in the 1970’s & ’80’s. Back in the day, he and Phil would travel around Louisiana and Arkansas selling duck calls to stores right out of the truck! The sales pitch back then was the same as today: “These calls are the best ‘cause they sound just like a duck!”

He left the duck call business when he received the call for full time ministry in 1988 and now serves as a senior pastor in West Monroe, LA. Alan is still a part of the family’s commitment to spreading the gospel of Christ through their love of hunting and the great outdoors.
