Buck Sings Eagles

A friend turned us on to a really great EP on Omnivore Recordings.  “Buck Sings Eagles” is a 4 song piece of classic vinyl with Buck Owens singing covers of The Eagles.  It’s a perfect melding of the Bakersfield Sound/West Coast Country with Country Rock.  Based on one of the tracks, we put together a couple more great covers of Eagles songs by Etta James and Linda Ronstadt.  We hope you had as much fun listening as we had playing the songs tonight.  Enjoy!

  1. Buck does amazing covers, and makes them his own. He could cover the phone book, and it would be amazing.
