Bucky's video for "A Different World" will face a head-to-head challenge on CMT's Power Picks, which begins at 12 noon ET; click here to go directly to the Power Picks main page. Bucky's matchup will happen during the latter half of the show, so hit the "Vote Now" button, keep that voting window open and get ready to mouse-click away! Results in comments later today...
The 42nd annual ACMs were full of music and glamour--and Bucky looked terrific on the "orange carpet" last night. (He'll really look great on the stage accepting an award or two in '08...) The Bucky Truck Stop at Rawkhands has a beautifully done roundup of wire photos from the event (thank you, Sunscreen!), and there should be much more in the way of images and stories available as the day rolls on.
Bucky's quickly mentioned in this vignette-style AP story about the awards; not sure if "trolling for attention" and "riddled with Simon Cowell survivors" casts an entirely fair light on the singers with Idol backgrounds who were present, considering there are quite a few #1 hits, award wins and current chart successes among them. But it's an interesting glimpse, all in all.
Speaking of the charts, a kind anon in the previous comments section points out an interesting little glitch--it seems Carrie Underwood's "Wasted" was apparently listed as recurrent Tuesday, but is back on the "currents only" Mediabase weighted and Top 500 charts today. Bucky's "A Different World" is now listed at #18 and #20, respectively, and that lovely bullet still holds! The song's still growing strong; request Bucky at your local country station and help keep the ball rolling. (And while you're here, feel free to use our convenient links to the CMT Pure 12-Pack and GAC Top Twenty countdown ballots and show Bucky some love...)
Edited to add a link to the CMT Artists "most anticipated new album" poll--which is still in progress, even though all the CDs mentioned are now released and thriving. Click here to vote for Bucky, and have fun!
Bucky, Rocky and the band resume their tour tomorrow with a show at Coyote's in Louisville, Kentucky. Tickets may still be available at Ticketmaster.com, and be sure to check his official tour schedule to find out when he'll be rockin' a house near you.
More very soon--have a great Wednesday!
