Brad Paisley Set for ACM Tribute to Buck Owens

Brad Paisley, Dwight Yoakam and ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons are among those paying tribute to the late Buck Owens during next week’s Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas. Actor Vince Vaughn will introduce the segment that will also feature Buddy Alan (son of Buck and Bonnie Owens), steel guitarist Tom Brumley (who played in Owens’ band, the Buckaroos, during its heyday in the ’60s), Chris Hillman (whose credits include stints with the Byrds, the Flying Burrito Brothers and the Desert Rose Band) and blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. Set for Tuesday (May 23), the ACM Awards show will be broadcast live on CBS.
