Memorial day news: catching up, looking back...

Bucky Covington's debut CD is in stores now, and his music video is available for online viewing at CMT.com and Yahoo Music. You can buy Bucky's album at Amazon, Best Buy , iTunes and Target, hear the full version of his single "A Different World" at CMT and GAC, or enjoy samples of songs from the CD at Bucky's official MySpace. An autographed copy of Bucky Covington can be ordered while supplies last at his official site or via his official fan club.

Here's a quick look at what's happening on this busy Monday holiday:

A kind concertgoer who was at Bucky's show last night in San Bernadino shares her impressions of the evening in this post at the CMT boards--sounds like Bucky and the band definitely made some new fans in California! If you'd like to check them out during their Western sweep, click here for tour dates; they'll be playing the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach tomorrow, and Kathy at Team Covington has all the details and a great photo from Zellwood that you're sure to enjoy. (Edited to add--she's also got an update on new photos and videos from the Zellwood show, courtesy of Lisa of Buck Wild. Thanks, Kathy and Lisa!) Several conference calls from the California shows may be in the works--check back for details.

Today's also the last chance to catch Bucky on this week's CMT Insider; the show airs at 11:30 a.m. ET, and Bucky appears in the latter half of the program.

Chartwise, things are looking good today, with "A Different World"at #15 on both the the Top 500 and weighted Mediabase charts as of this morning. And a kind commenter (thanks!) pointed out that "I'll Walk" and "Bible and the Belt" are also on the Top 500 today, at #82 and #85, respectively. We're still tracking "A Different World" closely as it heads toward the lofty heights of the Top Ten--but it's fun to hear Bucky on the radio as often as possible. (If you agree, take some time out to request "A Different World" at your favorite local and streaming country stations--a nice choice for those picnics and beach parties today...)

We'll wrap it up for now with those handy voting links--stop in at the GAC Top Twenty and CMT's Pure 12-Pack ballots and show Bucky some affection before heading out for your holiday fun.

More later!
