|...a brief pictorial history of The Owens Brothers
|It all started because of this man's influence. This is their Dad who, even though he was left handed, played right-handed stringed
instruments by turning them upside down, and taught them how to make music. Pickin' under the shade tree was a common
occurrence at the Owens house.
|R.C. sang, played guitar, mandolin, and
fiddle, and wrote several songs. In his
younger days, he performed with his
bluegrass band on WFOM AM radio.
