Skeeter Singing With The Legendary Buck Owens

Country Music Hall of Fame member Buck Owens passed away on this day (March 25th) in 2006. I worked for Buck on one of his Bakersfield, CA radio stations (KTIE-FM) in the mid-1990's. During that time, Buck's dream of a first-class steakhouse/nightclub/concert venue/museum, the Crystal Palace was being built right next door.

After it opened, Buck performed there with his band, the Buckaroos, nearly every weekend. One particular night, I was at the Palace with my best friend since high school (and phenomenal guitarist/singer), David Langley, who had come down from Fresno to celebrate his birthday. Buck spotted me in the audience, and asked me to get up and sing a song with him and the Buckaroos.
