Buck Owens - Honky Tonk Man: Buck Sings Country Standards

Given the opportunity to record a large group of songs that reached far beyond his own best-known works, Buck enjoyed the rare chance to stretch out and have fun performing the hits of other country singers.

Over the course of this collection, pulled from the vast trove of material Buck recorded for Hee Haw, Owens provides us with a concise tutorial on the history of country music - from 'In the Jailhouse Now,' a song first popularized by Jimmie Rodgers in 1928 - to 'Rednecks, White Socks and Blue Ribbon Beer,' a hit for Johnny Russell in 1973.
