Buck Owens developed the “Bakersfield Sound” of country music, hosted Hee-Haw and became one of country music’s biggest stars – all while breaking every rule of Nashville.  Bob talks with Grammy-nominated record producer Randy Poe about his new book about Owens titled Buck ‘Em!  Poe drew from nearly a hundred hours of cassette tapes on which Owens recorded his life story in his own words.
