Korie Robertson was introduced to the public nearly a decade ago thanks to her husband Willie Robertson and the TV series Duck Dynasty. Through the show, fans got a bit of a glimpse into Korie’s personal life and she has since gained a very big following. Although the Robertson family has found themselves at the center of some criticism over the years, Korie has always stood behind her husband and her in-laws. Although Duck Dynasty has been off the air for a few years now, Korie is getting ready to be back in the spotlight with a new web series called At Home with the Robertsons. Instead of focusing on the family business, this series will invite a variety of guests to discuss different topics with the family. Keep reading for 10 things you didn’t know about Korie Robertson.
