Edited to add links to the ACM Orange Carpet gallery at GAC, where two nice shots of Bucky are posted, and to the Bucky Truck Stop at Rawkhands, where there are some great updates you're sure to enjoy. (Thanks, Sunscreen.)
It's a quiet news day so far, but tonight brings a rockin', rowdy party--Bucky, Rocky and the band are playing at Coyote's in Louisville. The venue is part of a huge six-club complex in the downtown district, but Coyote's sounds just intimate enough to offer the possibility of an up-close experience. (And if you'd like to make it an even closer one, there's an intriguing notice posted at the O'Malley's/Coyote's concert page today: "Win VIP tickets and backstage passes to see Bucky Covington! Just text 'Bucky' to 81676." Not sure what that's all about, but if you're planning to be there anyway, it's definitely worth a try this morning...)
Tickets for tonight's show may still be available at Ticketmaster--good luck, and I hope you'll be there to cheer Bucky on from a spot right up front!
And speaking of that awesome live concert feeling; our friend Icyfire11 captured it beautifully in her great shots from Bucky's recent Nashville shows. Enjoy her Photobucket gallery full of images from the Wildhorse Saloon concert with Sawyer Brown and memories of the Tennessee Mornings taping. Thanks to Icyfire for sharing her day in Music City!
The morning charts are guaranteed to raise a smile today--Bucky's "A Different World" moved up a notch yesterday to take the #18 spot on the Top 500 listings, and holds steady on the weighted chart at #17. (It's also #19 with a bullet on the Radio & Records/BDS weekly country singles chart.) And Bucky's CD comes in at #9 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart this week, making it a solid month of Top 10 album success for Bucky Covington. Lookin' good!
We can help keep things looking good--be sure to request Bucky at your local country station, and give him a hand at the GAC Top Twenty countdown with a vote today. (Help a brother out!)
And we'll close for now with a repeat link that might have been lost in the shuffle. If you missed Bucky's funny interview at Star-Country, be sure to check it out today--it's definitely a must-read.
More very soon...enjoy your Thursday!
Edited to add: As promised, here's the huge Academy of Country Music Awards sub-site at MSN Music; tons of articles, video and photos from that star studded evening make this a fun way to spend your morning. (I'm browsing it now--stay tuned to this spot, and I'll update with direct links to Bucky's media in the section, if any.) If you missed the awards earlier this week, here's good news--the ACMs will be re-broadcast at 8 p.m. ET June 6th on GAC. Enjoy!--Winnie
