The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will offer a trio of special programs dedicated to Buck Owens and his band, the Buckaroos, on Saturday, December 7. The programs, which are in support of the exhibition The Bakersfield Sound:  Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, and California Country, are included with museum admission and are free to museum members.

A panel discussion, The Buckaroos: Making Music with Buck Owens, will take place at 11:00 a.m. in the Ford Theater. Willie Cantu, the only surviving member of the classic mid-1960s Buckaroos lineup, current Buckaroos Terry Christoffersen, Doyle Curtsinger and Jim Shaw, Buddy’s son, Buddy Alan Owens, and Randy Poe, co-author of Buck Owens’ new autobiography, will participate. Music historian Scott B. Bomar will moderate. The program will stream live at countrymusichalloffame.org.

Next, at 1:30 p.m. in the Taylor Swift Education Center, Randy Poe will read from and discuss his new book, Buck ‘Em: The Autobiography of Buck Owens. The book was written from recorded stories Buck left behind when he died in 2006 and chronicles Buck’s life from his impoverished beginnings through superstardom. Randy will be on hand to sign copies of the book following the discussion.

The day will end with a Buckaroos concert in the CMA Theater at 2:30. Willie Cantu, Terry Christoffersen, Doyle Curtsinger and Jim Shaw will join Buddy Alan Owens as he performs hits made famous by his father. James Intveld, Jim Lauderdale, Angaleena Presley, Sunny Sweeney and more will also perform.

Kip Moore has officially released his new single, “Young Love,” to radio. The song, co-written by Kip and his good friends Dan Couch and Weston Davis more than five years ago, is the lead single from his upcoming sophomore album. It’s a track he believes will appeal to fans both young and old.

“['Young Love] a story about a couple being against the world, feeling like they have to fight for every inch to be together,” Kip said. “It’s gonna relate to people that are 13, feeling like they are experiencing love for the first time and their parents don’t want them to be together, to people who are 80 that have gone through all these trials and tribulations to be together.”

“Young Love” is now available for download on iTunes. Kip is headlining his Burn The Whole World Down Tour and will join Lady Antebellum’s Take Me Downtown Tour in January.
