Mike's Minute
Good afternoon!
We are so saddened about the recent passing of Country Music Legend, Buck Trent.
There's no doubt the world lost an amazing entertainer and innovator. He was such an accomplished musician, master entertainer, and boy could he tell a story!
Buck was a part of our Grand Country family for several years. We're so thankful for the time we had with he and his wife, Jean.
He was a two-time CMA Instrumentalist of the Year and a prominent member of the Hee Haw television show.
Buck was born in Spartanburg, South Carolina on Feb. 17, 1938, and moved to Nashville in 1959, joining Bill Carlisle’s band. In 1962, following a brief duration with bluegrass originator Bill Monroe’s band, he joined Porter Wagoner’s Wagonmasters. Performing on Wagoner’s popular The Porter Wagoner Show, Trent also performed on many of Wagoner and Parton’s popular duets. Trent’s contributions to music also proved innovative, as the creator of the electric banjo.
In 1975, Buck and fellow country music entertainer and banjoist, Roy Clark earned a Billboard Top Country Albums hit with their collaborative project A Pair of Fives (Banjos, That Is), peaking at No. 9. Three other Trent titles impacted the tally: 1968’s Give Me Five (No. 40), 1976’s Bionic Banjo (No. 43) 1978’s Banjo Bandits with Clark (No. 45).
In 1975 and 1976, Buck and Roy won consecutive CMA Awards for instrumental group of the year. Also in 1976, Trent joined Clark and The Oak Ridge Boys for a concert tour behind the Iron Curtain in the Soviet Union. Two years later, Trent and Clark released the project Banjo Bandits, which would earn a Grammy nomination for best country instrumental performance.
In addition to his own recordings, Trent contributed guitar and/or banjo on enduring recordings by Roy Acuff, Wagoner, Clark, Stuart and Dolly Parton, including acoustic guitar on Parton’s signature hits “I Will Always Love You” and “Jolene.” He also contributed to many of Parton’s albums, including 1971’s Coat of Many Colors and 1973’s My Tennessee Mountain Home.
In the 1980s, after traveling to Branson, Buck began performing and would become a longtime headliner in the town. In 2004, he also appeared as a Branson performer in the movie Gordy. In 2012, Trent played on two songs for Marty Stuart’s album Nashville Volume 1: Tear the Woodpile Down and also made several appearances on The Marty Stuart Show.
If you knew Buck, he was your friend. If you worked for him, you had the utmost respect for his talent and showmanship.
Our prayers go out to his wife, Jean, children Charles and Melissa, family, friends and fans.

On Tuesday, November 7, we need everyone to get out and vote to renew the TCED Tax. This isn't a new tax. But it's an important one to enure we have funds to market Branson and fill the town with tourists.
