Buck Owens

Alvis Edgar Owens Jr. (August 12, 1929 – March 25, 2006), professionally known as Buck Owens, was an American musician, singer, songwriter and band leader who had 21 No. 1 hits on the Billboard country music charts with his band the Buckaroos.  While Owens originally used fiddle and retained pedal steel guitar into the 1970s. His signature style was based on simple storylines, infectious choruses, a twangy electric guitar, an insistent rhythm supplied by a drum track placed forward in the mix, and high two-part harmonies featuring him and his guitarist Don Rich.

From 1969 Owens co-hosted the TV series Hee Haw with Roy Clark. He left the cast in 1986. According to his son, Buddy Allen (Owens), the accidental death of Rich, his best friend, in 1974 devastated him for years and halted his career until he performed with Dwight Yoakam in 1988.   Owens is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
