Country star Dwight Yoakam is to pay tribute to his late hero Buck Owens on a new album of covers. Dwight Sings Buck features all of Owens' top five country hits, including Act Naturally and I Don't Care (Just As Long As You Love Me). Yoakam says, "After his death, it was the clearest way I could express my love for him and acknowledge the depth of our friendship." A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Buck Owens American Music Foundation, which serves to safeguard Owens' legacy. Owens died in March (07).
