As a boy growing up on an isolated dairy farm outside Sherman, Texas, Buck Owens was enthralled by the Monroe Brothers, Wayne Rainey and the other bluegrass musicians he heard on the powerful border radio station XELO. Buck carried this love of bluegrass music throughout his career, transforming the pile driving rhythm of genre patriarch Bill Monroe into his own “freight train” sound. Having recently opened his own studio in Bakersfield, Buck was free to record the music that he wanted and 1971’s Ruby & Other Bluegrass Specials was the outstanding result. Making no attempt to adhere to the strict acoustic lineup of the bluegrass pioneers, Buck interpreted the music his way. Featuring the #1 hit “Ruby,” the album mixes classic songs with new compositions, spotlighting the talents of Don Rich on fiddle and newest Buckaroo Ron Jackson on banjo. This love letter to his boyhood heroes reached #9 on the Billboard Country Album Charts and #1 on the Cashbox chart, validating his decision step outside the norm and follow his own path.
