The BAKERSFIELD WEST ROTARY donated a star for Country icon BUCK OWENS on FOX THEATER’s WALK OF FAME on AUGUST 11th. BUCK made much of his music with his band the BUCKAROOS in BAKERSFIELD, CA and moved there in 1950. It eventually became his permanent home until he died in MARCH 2006.
According to the THE BOOT blog, on hand at the star unveiling ceremony were BUCK’s sons, MIKE and JOHNNY, his nephew MEL and about 100 others including friends, employees of the OWENS family and fans. STROUDAVARIOUS artist DARRYL WORLEY headlined the annual BUCK'S BIRTHDAY BASH at THE CRYSTAL PALACE, the BAKERSFIELD nightclub BUCK owned, on the evening of AUGUST 11th.
MIKE said: "Dad would be proud of this. Instead of the streets of BAKERSFIELD, it's more like the sidewalks of BAKERFIELD.”
