Bucky Covington and Good Morning America's Sam Champion share a smile during the show's stop in Nashville on 6/7. 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, WalMart Music 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. (Photo by Aaron Crisler/Music City Update.com)
We're all sending get well wishes and good vibrations to Bucky Covington, who had to cancel tomorrow's appearance at the Kissin' 92 Listener Appreciation Concert in Boise due to emergency dental surgery. Sawyer Brown, Rodney Atkins and Memarie will still be performing as scheduled. Here's to a speedy recovery, Bucky!
While we're waiting for word on how Bucky's doing, here's a quick look at the charts:
"A Different World" is holding on tight to the the #13 spot on the Mediabase weighted and Top 500 charts this evening, and it's moved up a notch on this week's Radio & Records/BDS Country singles charts, to #15 with a bullet. (Keep requesting Bucky at your favorite local and streaming country stations, y'all!) According to this post at the CMT message boards, the song may have fallen out of the CMT Top 20 Countdown this week--but it's still on the ballot there and at GAC's Top Twenty Country Countdown, too. (I'd say that's an invitation from both channels to keep on voting--not to mention a lovely way of showing support.)
And tomorrow, of course, Billboard's Top Country Albums chart is officially released; it's a safe bet that Bucky Covington will continue its "Top 12-ish" streak there this week...
