Welcome to the OFFICIAL Wynn Stewart website! This site was developed by Wren Stewart Tidwell, Wynn's daughter, out of a deep love and respect for her father and with the desire for everyone to realize the great impact he had on country music.
NASHVILLE, Tenn., February 21, 2012 -The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum will tell the story of the stars, sidemen and songwriters who created and popularized a new kind of country music in mid-20th century America in The Bakersfield Sound: Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, and California Country, a more than 5,000-square-foot exhibition opening on Friday, March 23, 2012, and closing on December 31, 2013. The exhibit will explore Bakersfield's club scene where, in the 1940s and 1950s, the city's plethora of dance halls and honky-tonks provided respite for wall-to-wall, rambunctious workers eager for the boogiefied honky-tonk of the Maddox Brothers & Rose or the eclectic swing sound of Bob Wills. Also on the bandstands were enormously influential musicians Wynn Stewart and Tommy Collins, whose classic honky-tonk songs Buck Owens and Merle Haggard would later record, and for whom they worked as sidemen before launching solo careers.

scene .... Buck's style of music and that of Haggard, Wynn
Stewart and Collins,
collectively known as the "Bakersfield Sound,"
helped define the country music of a generation."
Another quote from Merle: "I thought, 'You know what I'll do? I'll take a little bit of Lefty, a little bit of Elvis, a little Wynn Stewart, a little bit of Ernest Tubb and the other influences I had -- Jimmie Rodgers, Chuck Berry, Grady Martin and Roy Nichols, Bob Wills -- and just be honest with it, try to make somethin' out of what I was."
