A Blast from the Past
Barbi Benton (born January 28, 1950) is an American model, actress, and singer.
She was featured on the cover of Playboy several times and in nude photo layouts in the March 1970, December 1973, January 1975, and December 1985 issues, although she was never one of the magazine's "Playmates of the Month".
Benton is known for her years as a regular on the country variety series Hee Haw, appearing in comic sketches with other cast members. She left the program after four seasons to concentrate on a more Hollywood-oriented career. She also starred in the short-lived 1977 ABC-TV comedy series Sugar Time!, about an aspiring female rock group.
Benton was also a recording artist with some success. Her record "Brass Buckles" (1975) was a top-five hit on Billboard 's country singles chart. Benton has recorded eight albums, the last of which she personally produced in 1979. She also composed the songs, sang them, and played piano. One of her better-known songs was "Ain't That Just the Way" (1976) - a number one hit in Sweden for 5 weeks.Read More . . . .
