(AP) - Buck Owens had a nearly photographic memory, and before he died he recorded his memories onto cassette.

Those stories have now been compiled into Owens' autobiography, called "Buck 'Em!" Among the things he covers include being one of the first country musicians not to live in Nashville, but in Bakersfield, California. He also discusses his multiple failed marriages, the death of his musical partner Don Rich, hosting "Hee Haw" and his exploits on tour.

"Buck 'Em!" is in stores today.
