About BuCK Helton

Born into a musical family in Dallas, TX., Buck is a seventh generation native Texan. He comes by his love of entertaining honestly. His mom, aunt and uncle were regulars on the Big D Jamboree, Saturday Night Shindig and Country Picnic radio and TV shows.  His mom, Judy Beaver, also sang in Las Vegas at the Golden Nugget with both Noro Wilson’s group, and also as the girl singer with the Jan Garber Orchestra. (In fact, Buck was doing six shows a night at the Nugget before he was born!)
His maternal grandmother, great aunt and uncles used to sing on the radio in California back in the 30’s and Buck’s Great Uncle Nat was taught to yodel by none other than Roy Rogers. Nat would pass those lessons on to Buck from early childhood.

Buck has been performing professionally since the age of five. He started on TV on Romper Room and has been at it ever since. With over 50 years behind the mic, and thousands of shows to his credit from coast-to-coast, he’s showing no signs of slowing down. Buck has released 14 albums to date and is also the author of the book Tales from the B-O Ranch which took the Will Rogers Silver Medal for Western humor in 2013.

If you enjoy knowing the story behind the songs, you’ll especially enjoy his shows. Buck is a Western Music Historian, and for his work in keeping classic Silver Screen era songs alive and introducing them to new audiences, he was inducted into the Great Movie Cowboys Hall of Fame. He’s also a member of the Old-Time Country Hall of Fame and is probably the only Cowboy singer in history to have been awarded a medal by a 3-star General for meritorious yodeling!


Buck is available for private and corporate parties, cowboy church services, fairs, festivals, rodeo events, cowboy gatherings, guest ranches, trail tides and other western-themed events.
