Howdy and welcome to all our first time visitors from MSNBC--happy to have you along! If you'd like to hear and see what all the fuss is about, here's a quick link to Bucky Covington's video for "A Different World" on CMT.com's Loaded. (And if you'd like a great soundtrack for your lunch break, check out his debut album, Bucky Covington, also available as streaming audio on CMT.com.) Just for the record, I'm not affiliated with Bucky, his label, or anyone official at all--I'm just a very pleased fan. Enjoy, and I hope you'll stop in again--Winnie
Edited to add a link to a wild (and funny) bit of pop-culture-meets-politics satire by Shawn Lewis of the Greenwood Index-Journal, in which Bucky gets a sweet shoutout...
Updated: The final Hits Daily Double estimates are in for the week, and it looks like Bucky's album is the very definition of a "steady seller"--a big 0% change from last week to this one may indicate that quite a few copies of Bucky Covington are in the hands of some brand new, freshly minted fans--and we're only on the first single of a hit-packed CD. (This album's far too good to be dismissed as an "Idol souvenir".) Bucky will more than likely hold on to his #9 spot on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart this week, pending final Soundscan numbers. Congratulations!
And a TV reminder--the "orange carpet" coverage of the Academy of Country Music Awards is about to start on GAC. Tune in at 7 p.m. ET to catch the excitement, then watch the awards on CBS at 8 ET.
See you soon!
