Buck Owens was the top-selling country act of the 1960s, with 21 number-one hits and 35 consecutive top-10 hits, a total surpassed only by The Beatles. Sisk chronicles his rise from poverty as son of a sharecropper to one of the nation''s best-loved entertainers.
Along with Merle Haggard, Buck Owens and his Buckaroos helped create a country-music style that has stood the test of time: the classic Bakersfield sound. Now in this edifying biography, Eileen Sisk investigates the life and work of this chart-topping singer with remarkable cross-over popularity. Known for his role as a co-host of Hee Haw, Owens' musical influence extends far beyond such entertainer roles. From Dwight Yoakam to the Beatles, many musicians would not sound how they do if it hadn't been for the tight harmonies and stripped down sound of this artist.
