The previous homeowners weren't afraid to paint walls (and ceilings) to their heart's desire, resulting in this maroon-hued ceiling in the office.

Born in Texas, Buck Owens moved out to California and became a pioneer of the Bakersfield sound, inspiring countless artists like Merle Haggard, Dwight Yoakam and Brad Paisley with hits such as "Tiger by The Tail," "Act Naturally," "Crying Time" and "Together Again." Fronting the Buckaroos, achieving 21 No. 1 hits on the Billboard charts, and co-hosting Hee Haw made country singer Buck Owens a honky tonk legend beyond the streets of Bakersfield.

Owens was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. He passed away in 2006 after playing at his own venue, the Crystal Palace on Buck Owens Blvd., about 10 minutes away from the home seen here.
