Buck Owens and Don Rich - Act Naturally (1966)

Here’s a video of Buck Owens and Don Rich in a 1966 TV show performing their theme song, Buckaroo and segueing into their hit, Act Naturally.

Buck Owens and Don Rich essentially created the ‘Bakersfield Sound’, the sound of natural country music with a hint of a rock-n-roll rootsy feel that flew in the face of the smooth, overproduced, ‘Nashville’ country sound. Don Rich tragically died in a motorcycle accident in 1974. Buck passed away in 2006 after several illnesses. Don was and is one of my guitar playing influences when I want to get a country sound.

You’ve got to love those outfits they’re wearing. Color TV was new in 1966 and wasn’t in that many homes. Folks who tuned into the Buck Owens Show got their money’s worth, didn’t they.
