Buck Hutcheson was born and raised in Tupelo Mississippi back in the 40's. The son of a sharecropper, at a tender age he learned all about cotton.
At the age of eight Buck's daddy gave him his first guitar; purchased at Phillip's Feed Store in Tupelo. He was a natural. It wasn't long before he was entertaining anyone that would listen. In the Mayfield Holiness Church Buck was known for trying to out sing the preacher.
By age 11 Buck was earning a little money for his playing and around 13 or 14 he headed for that big music town to the north-west. . MEMPHIS! In Memphis he lived with his brother, Jessie Carter, and the Gene Simmons Band. He was too young to go to nightclubs but he could work in one. When the band went on break, little Buck had to leave the building and go sit in the car until the time for the next set. At age 17 Buck got his break. He auditioned for the Killer, Jerry Lee Lewis and got the job. Ever since Buck has played with Jerry Lee, off and on, for most of his life.
During the years with Jerry Lee Buck played on a number of albums such as "The Greatest Live Show on Earth" recorded in Birmingham, Alabama at Municipal Auditorium, "Live at the International Hotel" in Las Vegas, "She Even Woke Me Up to Say Good-bye," "Rockin' Pneumonia Boogie Woogie Flu" plus numerous singles, just to name a few.
While recording "The Greatest Live Show on Earth," Buck was privileged to work with Hawk Hawkins the bass man, Morris Tarrant on drums, Larry Nichols on organ and of course, Buck on guitar. Of all the bands he's played in this one will always hold a special place in his heart. This band and Tiny & The Bondsmen really had it together.
Working for the Killer gave Buck not only the opportunity to travel all over the world but to also play with some of the best. He's rock n rolled with Chuck Berry, Fats Domino and Little Richard, just to name a few.
Being a large country fan he has also had the privilege of playing with Moe & Joe, Narvel Felts, Charlie Rich, Barbara Mandrell and the list goes on. Buck sings country and some rock n' roll. Prior to owning his own club, "Buck & Tiny's Country," Buck played with Tiny and the Bondsmen at the famous Hernando's Hide a Way and Bad Bob's.
When Buck & Tiny's Country opened on Brooks Road in Memphis Tennessee the place rocked. There was something for everybody. If you didn't like the song you were hearing - stick around, you'd like the next one for sure!
Buck is still wearing that guitar out entertaining folks. Most of the time now it's at private events.
