Just in from Lyric Street--a little news for Bucky's CMA Fest-bound fans (and for those of us who wish we were going, too.) Enjoy!--Winnie

Nashville, TN, June 5, 2007: Bucky Covington hit another career milestone this week when his debut single "A Different World" cracked the Top 15 on the country radio charts, reaching a weekly audience of over 17 million listeners.

Bucky will have the chance to celebrate his first Top 15 single at CMA Music Festival this week with the very people who make it possible-- the fans. "Country music fans are the best," said Covington, "and I can't wait to see everyone this week and shake their hands and tell them thank you for all their continued support."

Fans can catch Bucky at several events this week, including a full band set on Thursday (June 7th) from the Fest's daytime stage at Riverfront Park, and an acoustic set on Friday (June 8th) from the evening stage at LP Field. He'll also be signing autographs at the Borders booth immediately following his performance on Thursday, and on Friday afternoon he will be at the CMT booth inside the Convention Center.

Those fans not able to travel to Music City can still see Bucky at Music Fest by watching ABC-TV's Good Morning America this Thursday (June 7th), when he is a guest on the show's live broadcast from Nashville.

(If you'll be in Nashville this week and would like a chance to be in the audience for Bucky's Good Morning America appearance, head over to his official MySpace blog, where your invitation awaits. More later!)

    There is a charming profile of Bucky, Carrie, and Kellie on the (special for CMA Fest Week) Tuesday Grand Ole Orpy Live telecast on GAC. :D ---Kasper
