After a 20-year sabbatical taking care of necessary family business in Kentucky, Buck has relocated to Florida and is solely working on the writing end of his talent, creating very acceptable cross-over songs. During this break, he remained connected to the industry via featured film roles, acting in music videos and co-writing music with accomplished artists such as Bobby Boyd, Shirl Milet and the late actor, Jim Varney, who was one of his closes friend, as well as other notable professionals in the industry.
