November 22, 2005. The Legends Family Theatre hosted the presentation for the 2005 Branson Critic Best Singer Award.
A good crowd was in attendance at Legends in Concert that evening. There was a mix of regular show attendees as well
as many who were there specifically to see Bucky Heard receive his award.
Heard performs nightly at the Legends Family Theatre as one of the Blues Brothers. He also performs every Saturday night at
the Aint’ Misbehavin’ Theatre as the lead singer for the Horn Dawgs. He has quite a following of faithful fans
at both locations.
Here is what some of his fans had to say about him
Myschel from Hawaii says, “When I listened
to Bucky Heard's voice, I was just blown away. He is truly amazing. Through my friend, I was lucky enough
to meet him, and he is warm, friendly, caring and just a wonderful person. His was the only show I insisted we go back
Rachel says, “Bucky Heard - OH MAN can that guy jam
like no body else. His voice is so strong and always on perfect pitch. He sings and the crowd goes wild…”
Angela says, “We saw him as "Jake" in the Blues Brothers at Legends.
What an incredible talent! He's fabulous as an imitator and fabulous just as himself. I wanted to add my opinion
that Bucky should be voted best singer in Branson. He truly made our visit memorable and we just enjoyed every minute…”
Branson Critic Online could not agree more with the fans. These awards truly are
from the fans. On behalf of the editors and owners and fans, Heath Hawkins presented the 2005 Branson Critic Best Singer
Award to Bucky Heard. He was very grateful (and appreciative) for the honor. Congratulations Bucky!
