Buck Owens


American musician, a country-western singer, songwriter and guitarist who also played trumpet and saxophone. A self-taught guitarist heavily influenced by the country music of his childhood, he teamed up with Theryl Ray Britten in 1945. The guitar-strumming duo played mainly on radio and in local venues.

Owens moved to California in 1951 where he joined various other musicians and made a few records. In 1957 he signed a contract with Capitol Records. Many of his recordings in the 1960s found an appreciative audience. He became the host of television show, "Hee-Haw" in 1969, keeping that job for 15 years while continuing recording his music.

In 1996 he was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Death came in his sleep on March 25, 2006 in Bakersfield, CA.
