Here's looking at you, sweetie! Bucky Covington flirts with the camera during a USA Today photo shoot; click here to see the paper's beautiful gallery of portraits of the artists at this year's CMA Fest.
This sweet tidbit just landed in our mailbox via a kind anonymous author: "Tomorrow at 9 a.m. on WIVK Knoxville there will be an major concert announcement that Bucky Fans might want to listen to. It should stream live on their station..." She goes on to mention that Kellie Pickler fans should turn their radios on, too. Sounds like fun! We'll post the big news here tomorrow morning.
In the meantime, there was a question in comments by another kind anonymous writer, who wondered if "A Different World" was still a priority with the powers that be at Bucky's label. This gorgeous ad released to radio trade publications this week answers that question with a resounding yes! Don't feel bad if the research info makes your eyes glaze over--just focus on that bold white print. Lyric Street is "powering up for Top 10 airplay"--and so are we.

(P.S.--CMT's Power Picks is underway at post time, if you'd like to join in the fun. Edited at 12:20: It sure pays to be prepared. Bucky just won, with 54% of the mouse clicks. Nice going, everyone! More soon--Winnie)
