Bucky Covington's got some brand new tunes coming your way--welcome, summer!  Here's the scoop from today's press release:

Nashville, TN…June 30, 2015 – Country music hit-maker and TV star Bucky Covington is back with a new single (available today) and his very first EP is set to release July 14th. Fans can pre-order the 6 song EP starting today and receive the new single "I Feel Ya" immediately. Bucky produced his new music alongside Grammy nominated producer Dale Oliver and is very excited to finally be able to share it with his fans. Along with this being Covington’s first EP release as an independent artist, this also marks his first release in 3 years. Happy Man, the new EP from Bucky Covington, will release digitally July 14th and is available for pre-order now HERE as “I Feel Ya” shipped to country radio this month via PlayMpe and CDX.

"This project means a lot to me as an independent artist" Bucky says. "The good part is that there’s no one telling me what songs to pick, and the bad part is no one is there to tell me what songs to pick or paying for making the music, so all the risk is on me. That said, I hope everyone loves it as much as I do!", the singer adds with his signature lighthearted smile and a laugh.

 Bucky Covington Happy Man EP track listing:

1. “I Feel Ya” (Eric Mallon, Ruben Estevez, Jason Afable)
