    Buie, Buddy (1940s?-Present)

    He is a songwriter and vocalist born in Dothan, Alabama.  When he was young he and his friend, Bobby Goldsboro formed the band The Webs.  They learned Roy Orbison songs and when he toured in Dothan they were asked to become his touring band.  They became the Candymen and he became Roy Orbison's tour manager.  He wrote songs for the Candymen and Roy Orbison and then he was introduced to the group Classics IV.  He co-wrote "Spooky" and "Stormy" which were both hits for Classics IV, as well as providing hit songs for B.J. Thomas and Billy Joe Royal.  In 1970 he brought together session musicians to form Atlanta Rhythm Section , who had hits with songs such as "So Into You" and "Imaginary Lover".  He is their manager and producer and his name is listed first on all the songwriting credits of the songs.
