Buck Owens and Mystery Fan: “Together Again”?

Buck Owens, 72, has placed a personal ad in several Southern California newspapers in search of a fan he briefly met in September while taping an episode of Family Feud, The Associated Press reports. The Country Music Hall of Fame member lost the woman’s phone number and has placed ads that partly read: “Buck has lost contact, would like for you to call Mel Owens at (661) 326-1011. Please call, extremely important.” The telephone number is for his offices in Bakersfield, Calif. The country legend, who is divorcing his wife of 22 years, admits his pursuit is a little unusual. “I know it sounds silly to some people, me looking for her this way,” Owens told the AP. “But what if it works?” 10/17/01
