Detailed Description

by the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum, with contributions from Bakersfield experts Scott B. Bomar, Randy Poe, Robert Price, and Dwight Yoakam

The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum tells the story of the stars, sidemen and songwriters who created and popularized a new kind of country music in mid-20th century America in The Bakersfield Sound:  Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, and California Country, a more than 5,000-square-foot exhibition opening on Friday, March 23, 2012, and closing on December 31, 2013.

The stripped-down country sounds that Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, and their California cohorts crafted in the 1950s and ‘60s still reverberate in the twenty-first century. Complementing the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum’s exhibition The Bakersfield Sound: Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, and California Country, this book honors one of America’s most exciting and influential music scenes.
