Buck 'Em! The Autobiography of Buck Owens is the life story of acountry music legend. Born in Texas and raised in Arizona, Buckeventually found his way to Bakersfield, California. Unlike the vastmajority of country singers, songwriters, and musicians who made theirfortunes working and living in Nashville, the often rebellious andalways independent Owens chose to create his own brand of country musicsome 2,000 miles away from Music City – racking up a remarkabletwenty-one number one hits along the way. In the process he helped givebirth to a new country sound and did more than any other individual toestablish Bakersfield as a country music center.

In the latterhalf of the 1990s, Buck began working on his autobiography. Over thenext few years, he talked into the microphone of a cassette tape machinefor nearly one hundred hours, recording the story of his life.

Withhis near-photographic memory, Buck recalled everything from his earlydays wearing hand-me-down clothes in Texas to his glory years as thebiggest country star of the 1960s; from his legendary Carnegie Hallconcert to his multiple failed marriages; from his hilarious exploits onthe road to the tragic loss of his musical partner and best friend, DonRich; from his days as the host of a local TV show in Tacoma,Washington, to his co-hosting the network television show Hee Haw; and from his comeback hit, “Streets of Bakersfield,” to his induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Inthese pages, Buck also shows his astute business acumen, having beenamong the first country artists to create his own music publishingcompany. He also tells of negotiating the return of all of his Capitolmaster recordings, his acquisition of numerous radio stations, and ofhis conceiving and building the Crystal Palace, one of the mostvenerated musical venues in the country.

Buck 'Em! is thefascinating story of the life of country superstar Buck Owens – from theback roads of Texas to the streets of Bakersfield.
