Lent Day 24 There gonna put me in the movies, there gonna make a big star out of me......

Ringo Starr made that song, "Act Naturally,"
famous in the Beatles' "Yesterday...and Today" album,
but did you know the song was an original Buck Owens tune?

Best known by mainstream audiences as the top billed star of "Hee Haw," Buck Owens was a respected musician.
When one reviews the history of American music from the 1950's and forward, one sees that the road passed through Buck Owens and the Buckaroos cornfield.

Like Ray Charles and Johnny Cash,
sometimes one does not appreciate an artist until they are gone.
