Capricorn Records founder Phil Walden, who launched the 
careers of Otis Redding and the Allman Brothers Band, has 
died in Atlanta at age 66. Walden died of cancer Sunday, 
longtime friend and retired CNN Chairman Tom Johnson told 
the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Walden helped finance the 
fledgling presidential bid of then-Gov. Jimmy Carter and 
many of his Capricorn bands performed benefits for the 
Democratic hopeful, the newspaper said. He guided the career 
of his longtime friend, Redding, who died in a 1967 plane 
crash days after recording "(Sittin' On) The Dock Of The 
Bay." Walden started up Capricorn in 1969 and went on to 
create the Southern rock genre with the Allmans, The 
Charlie Daniels Band, the Dixie Dregs, Wet Willie and 
Widespread Panic, among others.

Country singer Bonnie Owens died Monday in Bakersfield, 
Calif., 30 days after the death of her first husband, 
country superstar Buck Owens. Owens, 76, also married 
country icon Merle Haggard and served as a bridesmaid when 
he remarried days after their divorce. She suffered from 
Alzheimer's disease and had been under hospice care for some 
time, the Bakersfield (Calif.) Californian reported Tuesday.
She met Haggard on Herb Henson's "Trading Post" TV show in 
the early 1960s and they recorded the 1964 hit, "Just 
Between the Two of Us." They married in 1964 and divorced a 
decade later. Owens remained friends with both her ex-spouses 
and sang with their bands, the Californian said. She married 
her third husband, Fred McMillan, in the early 1980s. Among 
her many awards were the Academy of Country Music's top 
female vocalist in 1965. She shared the award for the ACM's 
best vocal group in 1965 and 1966. In 1967, she and Haggard 
were named the ACM's best duo.
