This man from Sherman, Texas -- probably best known as the wide-grinning rube on Hee Haw for so many years -- started a country music revolution. Or more accurately, a counter-revolution. It was called "the Bakersfield Sound," He and fellow revolutionary Merle Haggard were cranking out raw, hard-driving honky-tonk music that stood the country-pop coming out of Nashville on its head. When Buck Owens and the Buckaroos would launch into "I've got a tiger by the tails, it's plain to see...!" the packed crowds would be on their feet and headed for the dance floor.
