If family lineage had anything to do with it, Buddy Alan would have been a slam-dunk as a country music star. Fortunately, Alan – the son of Bonnie Owens and Country Music Hall of Fame member Buck Owens and the stepson of Bonnie's second husband, Hall of Famer Merle Haggard – had the talent to back up his illustrious background. From his earliest recordings, a duet with Buck Owens in 1968 and his first solo single, written by Haggard, it was apparent that Buddy had his own sound and the record-buying public loved it. Here is a long-overdue career-retrospective, rounding up the very best of the distinctive stylings of Buddy Alan, featuring all the early duets with his dad and the chart-topping singles that soon followed.
