WATCH: Rare Clip of Buck Owens Singing a Christmas Classic

Country star and legendary Buck Owens had contributed a lot to the country music industry. In fact, he pioneered the famed Bakersfield sound, which is a subgenre of country music developed in the late 1950s. Owens, together with his band, The Buckaroos, became instrumental in introducing and popularizing the Bakersfield country sound. They engineered their sound and remastered the country, rock and roll, and honky-tonk style. Truly, Owens was an icon worth remembering.

Buck Owens and The Buckaroos Render Sing It Right for Christmas

In a rare footage, Owens and The Buckaroos delivered a Christmas classic song, “Santa Looked A Lot Like Daddy.”

Standing in front of the crowd, he and his band was wearing a classic bedazzled nudie suit. Their look reminds us of the classic times when a nudie suit is just all you need to get attention from people.

While the host is introducing Buck, you can see the excitement across his face. Knowing he was beside a legend, he almost gasps for breath asking the crowd,

“Would you believe it? This nut here had the number two – of all the artists in the country – he had the number two Christmas record!”

After the host’s kind introduction, Owens and his band proceeded to sing “Santa Looked A Lot Like Daddy.” It was one of the most requested of his fans whenever the Christmas season approaches.

Released in 1965, “Santa Looked A Lot Like Daddy” was penned by Owens and Don Rich. It was then recorded and made popular by Owens himself. In addition, it has become very popular since its release. As a matter of fact, it has been covered by a number of country music artists such as Garth Brooks, Travis Tritt, and Brad Paisley.

The song narrates the tale of a boy who sneaks downstairs only to catch a glimpse of his father in a Santa Claus costume. The tune is an upbeat music, staying true to its Bakersfield sound.

Check out this rare performance of the legendary Buck Owens and The Buckaroos performing “Santa Looked A Lot Like Daddy:”
