Buck Owens – Put a Quarter in the Jukebox

7 04 2011

8/12/1929 — 3/25/2006 Buck Owens was born in Sherman, Texas, on Aug. 12, 1929. In 1937, his sharecropper family of ten moved to Mesa, Arizona in an attempt to escape the Dust Bowl. At age sixteen, he was performing in clubs and on radio. In 1951, Buck moved to Bakersfield, California, a hot bed for country music. Bob Wills worked there and both The Maddox Brothers & Rose and Ferlin Husky called it home. Buck worked nights at the Blackboard Club, his home base from 1951 to 1958. He also commuted to the Capitol Record studios in Los Angeles where he worked as a backup musician for Tennessee Ernie Ford, Sonny James, Wanda Jackson, Faron Young and Tommy Collins. Buck first recorded as Corky Jones for the small Pep and Chesterfield labels (1955). Owens signed a contract with Capitol Records in 1957 and his initial sessions under the command of AR executive Ken Nelson flopped, so Owens moved to Washington to pursue a radio career. In 1958, Buck returned to the Capitol studios and recorded four original songs, including “Second Fiddle.” In 1959 he began hosting his own live TV show over KTNT (Tacoma). Among the featured talents was Loretta Lynn. There he met a fiddler by the name of Don Rich. Don would become a staple in the Buckaroos band and on Buck’s best recordings. After joining Capitol, Owens formed his own band. The group had no name until one of Buck’s early bass players, a talented Bakersfield musician named Merle Haggard, dubbed them “The Buckaroos.” The success of

BuckThat© is a brutally honest, no-holds-barred reality show of the powerful story of 3 teenage hip hop artist/krump dancers in California on a fast moving journey from a rough and tumbling ride of showcasing their talent for free in the never-ending club scene to embracing the dream of stardom by hosting sold out performances headlining them ultimately earning them millions of dollars.

@RickinFLA07 Buck was a great, talented musician, songwriter, and singer. Don Rich, Tom Brumley, Doyle Holly, and Willie Cantu all brought him to a whole new level as The Buckaroos. While Buck’s sound wasn’t the same without the Buckaroos, it’s not fair to say that he wasn’t anything without Don. He didn’t enjoy as much success after Don passed away and Tom left, but Buck still was a great country star in his own right. I’d rather watch him today if he was still alive than any other country star

Miss that old country sound, yeah, they sure don’t make’em like they used to. Today’s country…you can have it, I’m old school.

Do you have “you’re never miss the water till the well runs dry” by the Buckeroos, Flash?

@flashbell This sounds too country so it probably wouldn’t even chart today. Today’s country is NOT country.

Not too many of these guys around anymore. Buck and Don were great. The Buckaroos were an excellent country band. They don’t make ’em like this anymore.
