Buck Tidbits: *Buck’s first child was born in 1946, when the musician was only 16.” *Owens married for a second time at age 18, to a yodeler named Bonnie who bore him two children. They divorced a few years after, and then reunited as band mates. Bonnie later married Merle Haggard, who was one of Buck’s major musical rivals.” *In his lifetime, Buck accumulated 450 songwriter credits and recorded 47 top 10 singles.” *The night of his death, Buck planned to cancel his nightly performance, but when he learned that fans had traveled from Oregon, he decided to give it a shot. He died in his sleep on March 24, 2006.” -Lucy McGuigan
