The Buck Stops Here

Where I grew up in South Central PA Hee-Haw was a fact of life--Hee-Haw and Laurence Welk (I much preferred Soul Train as I approached puberty, but had to watch before Mom came home from work). Cornpone folksy jokes were a-ok when I was a wee-one, and so was fine singing and gittar playin'. Buck Owens could do both. He's no longer grinnin', alas, but even if he were only remembered for influencing The Beatles, his place in music history would be assured. He done did much more'n that. You like fine harmonies and fine guitar soloing, do yourself a favor and check out Buck and his Buckaroos:
