Owens and Haggard were the artists that initially honed the Bakersfield Sound that gave inspiration to many country and rock artists to incorporate it into their music. the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Grateful Dead and many other rock groups help perpetuate the Bakersfield Sound and bring it mainstream.

The Eagles, John Fogerty/Creedence Clearwater Revival, Emmylou Harris and Gram Parsons were also significantly influenced by the Bakersfield Sound.

Buck Owens and His Buckaroos played at the Fillmore West in San Francisco in October 1968.

clearly there is a huge connection between the Bakersfield Sound genre and the hippy, country rock and general rock and roll genre.  it can still be heard in a lot of contemporary music.  clean, raw and not overly-produced.

Sometimes dismissed as corny, you gotta admit that Dwight Yoakam reconnected popcountry to the Bakersfield sound that most country fans were completely oblivious about or where it came from.
