More information

Owens was born on a farm in Sherman, Texas, to Alvis Edgar Owens, Sr. and his wife, Maicie Azel Ellington. Midway Mall, at 4800 Texoma Parkway, now sits where his father's farm once was. (U.S. Highway 82 through Sherman was named Buck Owens Freeway in his honor).



"'Buck' was a donkey on the Owens farm," Rich Kienzle wrote in the biography About Buck. "When Alvis Jr. was three or four years old, he walked into the house and announced that his name also was "Buck." That was fine with the family, and the boy's name was Buck from then on." He attended public school for grades 1–3 in Garland, Texas.
