In a way, Dwight Yoakam had been working up to DWIGHT SINGS BUCK for his whole career. Buck Owens's '60s Bakersfield honky-tonk sound was the primary influence on Yoakam's career, and the latter emerged in the '80s as the proud bearer of the Bakersfield torch. One of Yoakam's earliest hits was in fact a duet with Owens. So it's only natural that in the wake of Buck's passing, his disciple should honor him with a tribute album. Yoakam tackles both classic Owens tunes, such as the evergreen "Act Naturally" and "Crying Time," and more esoteric fare. Often he plays it straight, sticking close to his hero's template, but even when he takes a few liberties with the material, it remains clear just how much of a formative effect this music has had on Yoakam, and how deeply it's ingrained in his own musical makeup.
