    I don't know if there are any fans here, but he was one of my favorites. :(

    My dad loved Hee Haw. Buck was a good entertainer. RIP

    Country music has lost one of it's patriarch's. RIP Buck.

    Dwight Yokam is a big fan of Buck Owens, and sang quite a few songs with him.

    They certainly did. I'm not a huge Dwight Yokam fan, but I really liked them together in "Under Your Spell Again".

    I won't tell you what my father called Yokam. He didn't think those tight pants were "right". :D

    Yeah Dwight's pants are something else. But I still like his music. I probably have more Dwight CD albums than any other. His music is vintage country in it's roots. He hasn't sucken into the current country music pit, where you can hardly tell the difference between it, and pop. I give Dwight a lot of credit for that. Even his newest album, "Blame The Vain", is still done in the old country music tradition.
