Inspired by Buck Owens

Country music is a little rowdier thanks to Buck Owens. The singer's sleek, stomping Bakersfield sound has influenced countless stars over the years—and none more than Merle Haggard, who uses a Buck-style shuffle beat and walking bassline to put some boogie into "Mixed Up Mess of a Heart." With "Sleepin' On the Foldout," Brad Paisley updated that sound for the late '90s, adding some wit that Buck surely would have appreciated.
