Buck Trent Keeps Classic Country Alive

By Joshua Clark, Branson Tri-Lakes News

Branson’s longest running morning show continues to entertain audiences.

Buck Trent has one of the longest running morning shows in Branson, and is showing no signs of slowing down.

“I’m 75 years old now, and I feel great,” Trent said. “I love what I’m doing. I’ve been doing it since I was a little boy and the guys in the band are some of the finest folks around, they really are.”

When Trent first opened his own morning show in 1991, many of his fellow friends and performers said 10 a.m. is too early for a show.

“The people who come see my show, they done been up for a few hours and this is the peak of their day,” he said. “I catch them when they’re good and primed up.”

Trent broke into the music business at a young age, and by the time he was in his early 20s, he was performing with Porter Wagoner.

“So many of the people who come to see me at my show remember me from the old Porter Wagoner shows,” he said. “Now they’re replaying them on RFD-TV, and people tell me, ‘Hey, I just saw you the other night on Porter’s show.’ That always makes me laugh because that was 30 or 40 years ago.”
