Buck ’em! The Autobiography of Buck Owens

Buck OwensBuck Owens began creating his own brand of country music in Bakersfield, California, where he changed the way country records were mixed, produced, written, and perceived. In 1969, he began hosting the show Hee Haw and soon became a household name. Beginning in the late 1990s, Owens began working on this autobiography by meticulously recording his life story, from his childhood in Texas, to his glory years into a tape recorder. Producer and author Randy Poe transcribed the stories from the late musician’s recordings to create this book written in Owens’ own words.
