As part of the Country Music Hall of Fame exhibit The Bakersfield Sound, the museum held a book discussion on Dec. 7 with author Randy Poe for the Nov. 19 release Buck ‘Em! The Autobiography of Buck Owens. Compiled from nearly 100 hours of cassette recordings from Owens about his life, Poe put together a 334-page story in Buck’s own words. The hardcover is published by Backbeat Books.

The CMHoF’s full-day salute also included and stories from Owens’ band members, in addition to an evening CMA Theater concert that featured Owens’ hit titles, led by Owens’ son Buddy Alan Owens and a lineup that featured James Intveld, Jim Lauderdale, Angaleena Presley, stars from the Nashville TV show, and Sunny Sweeny.
