Buck Owens & Susan Raye Together Again
Release Date: December 10, 2021
Together Again collects 22 tracks released between 1970–1975, the five years in which both Buck Owens and Susan Raye released a dozen solo albums each plus five duet albums together.
When Buck Owens took over co-hosting duties on Hee Haw in 1969, he brought along singer Susan Raye who he had also featured on his earlier television program The Buck Owens Ranch Show. As Buck’s popularity reached a new audience, the hits kept coming including hits for other artists associated with Buck, and Susan Raye emerged as a viable county artist in her own right. With 3 top hits of her own in 1971, she certainly had her fans, but in addition to her solo work, she also recorded multiple albums with Buck in the first half of the decade.
Compiled and produced for release by Grammy®-winner Cheryl Pawelski and Mastered by Grammy®-winning engineer Michael Graves, Together Again’s packaging features photos, ephemera, and new liner notes from Grammy®-nominated writer Randy Poe (Buck Em! The Autobiography Of Buck Owens.) Together Again is more than a document of the last five years of Buck’s classic reign at Capitol Records, it’s also the story of the beginnings of another country music superstar - Susan Raye.
