One of those really great country artists. If he had been a bit more like Willie Nelson, in terms of actually being able to influence rock'n'roll artists, I'd say yes. Unfortunately, having the Beatles cover his "Act Naturally" is really all that puts him on the Rock'n'Roll map. So no.

But some good songs of his to check out:
Big Game Hunter
I Wouldn't Live In New York City (If They Gave Him The Whole Dang Town)
Great White Horse
Act Naturally
Hot Dog

Buck owens should be in the rock and roll hall of fame.For one, act naturally by the Beatles.And the beatles them selves was huge fans of buck owens.And Buck Owens was the only artist to have a #1 hit with Johnny B good besides chuck berry.And in the 1960s his records were played on rock and roll radio stations as well as country.And on my heart skips a beat, he used a rock drummer to give it a more rock sound than country.And lets not forget that his sound was the begining of the country rock movement.He was the the first artist to bring the fender guitars into country music.And at the time country music called you an outlaw if you used them.He also recorded memphis,a chuck berry song.And in the 1960s it was hard sometimes to tell bucks sound from rock and roll.And he even recorded charlie brown on one of his albums.So yes,I think buck deseves to be in the hall of fame.

I've always liked his work on "Truck Drivin' Man" and his recording of the Rusty & Doug Kershaw classic "Diggy Liggy Lo" with Don Rich.

Security Question:

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
