This man from Texas - probably best-known as the wide-grinning rube on Hee Haw for so many years - started a country music revolution.

Or more accurately, a counter-revolution. It was called ‘The Bakersfield Sound.’ He and fellow revolutionary Merle Haggard were cranking out raw, hard-driving honky-tonk music that stood the country-pop coming out of Nashville on its head. When Buck Owens and the Buckaroos would launch into ‘I’ve got a tiger by the tail, it’s plain to see....!’ the packed crowds would be on their feet and headed for the dance floor. “Along the way Buck inspired none other than The Beatles to record their first country song, his classic ‘Act Naturally,’ and the master of soul, Ray Charles, to immortalise one of the best-known country songs ever, ‘Crying time’.
