I remember watching Buck & Roy on Hee-Haw when I was a kid in the 70's.

I always loved "Act Naturally".

A great performer.

A great performer, a great pioneer and a guy who did it his way. And all he had to do was 'Act Naturally'
Rest in peace.

Enjoy your karma, after all you earned it.

RIP, Buck. Some of my earliest memories are of sitting around with my parents watching Hee-Haw on Saturday evenings. You will definitely be missed.

On my way in to work this morning I was skimming radio stations when one started playing Buck Owens, 'Act Naturally' followed by 'I Got A Tiger By The Tail'. Sure did put a smile on my face! :D

They announced this at a concert I was at Sat night. The crowd did a "AHHH" and they prompted broke into a Buck Owen tribute number. It was really nice.
