~Deep Fried Country~ / Bio

Country Singer, Songwriter, Guitar player.

Buck Wylde picked up a guitar at the age of 13 because "chicks dig guitarists." He learned the songs of Rock and Roll bands like Black Sabbath, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Led Zeppelin but always remembered the Country Music his parents kept on the radio playing in the background all through his childhood years.

He put his dreams of being a Rock Star on hold for a bit when he joined the U.S. Army at 18 as a Military Policeman and was stationed to Ft. McNair in Washington D.C.

Three years later, after his discharge from the U.S. Army, until his mid twenties, Buck Wylde traveled from Ft. Worth Texas to Key West Florida with his thumb out and a guitar on his back. He lived on popcorn, beer and the kindness of fans he made along the way while he played and sang at Beer Joints, Biker Bars and Back Yard Bar-B-Qs.

As the years went by, he found himself playing contemporary Christian and Country Gospel in churches as well as a stint as Worship Leader for a Traveling Tent Revival.

Returning to his birthplace, Memphis, TN, he took a job at the World Famous Sun Studio, which is a tourist attraction by day but still a functioning recording studio at night. He wore many hats while there and enjoyed them all as he walked the sacred ground where Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis had all made musical history. He played on several recording sessions and performed local fairs and festivals with Sun Records alumni Malcolm Yelvington (Drinkin' Wine Spo-Dee-O-Dee, Yakety Yak) and Billy Lee Riley (Red Hot, Flyin' Saucers Rock and Roll).

He went from there to playing guitar in a Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute band but eventually moved to the country, about 20 miles north of the random gunfire of Memphis, TN. There he taught guitar lessons, served as Youth Praise Team Director at his Church, played local Restaurants and many private events, most of which, were sponsored by the U.S. Navy. Of course he still loves to play Beer Joints, Biker Bars and Back Yard Bar-B-Qs.

In the year 2005 Buck Wylde met Omega Lee and since she could sing asked her to do a show with him in Drummonds Tn. It was love at first sight and continues to grow to this day.
