The life story of a country music legend. Born in Texas and raised in Arizona, Buck eventually found his way to Bakersfield, California. Unlike the majority of country singers, songwriters, and musicians who made their fortunes in Nashville, the often rebellious and always independent Owens chose to create his own brand of country music 2,000 miles away from Music City - racking up a remarkable twenty-one number one hits along the way. In the process he helped give birth to a new country sound and did more than any other individual to establish Bakersfield as a country music center. In the 1990s, Buck began working on his autobiography, talking into the microphone of a cassette tape machine for nearly one hundred hours. With his near-photographic memory, he recalled everything from his early days wearing hand-me-down clothes to his glory years as the biggest country star of the 1960s; from his legendary Carnegie Hall concert to multiple failed marriages; from hilarious exploits on the road to the tragic loss of his musical partner and best friend, Don Rich; lots more. This is the fascinating story of country superstar Buck Owens - from the back roads of Texas to the streets of Bakersfield. Softcover. 333 pp.   More Details...
