Bucky Covington shares a smile at the Rodeo Club in San Jose, CA earlier this month; click here to enjoy a big and beautiful Yahoo photo gallery by Sunny. (Thanks again, Sunny! Please note--you'll have to log into Yahoo before viewing the gallery.) 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.
Edited to add a link to Bucky's official MySpace, where some great photos from his recent Allentown concert are posted in a slideshow in the comments section. Enjoy! (Thanks to everyone who sent a kind heads up, and to Michelle for sharing the beautiful photos.)
It's a serene but happy Saturday--Bucky's dental surgery (reportedly on his wisdom teeth) went well, and as of this post it looks like he, Rocky, Don, Shaun and Hans will be rockin' the stage at the Carl Perkins Civic Center in Jackson TN as scheduled tomorrow evening. There may be some tickets still available here--hope you'll be there!
A quick look at Mediabase shows "A Different World" holding firm at #12 on the weighted chart, and #13 on the Top 500. With two hits dropping from their #1 peaks, there's a lot of good-looking chart ground up for grabs--be sure to request "A Different World" at your favorite local and streaming country stations before heading out to the beach, the mall, or wherever this beautiful summer Saturday takes you. (And remember to give the video a little love at CMT's Top 20 Countdown and GAC's Top Twenty Country Countdown, too..)
For a much more comprehensive look at many different charts, stop in at the CMT boards, where there's an excellent post detailing Bucky's debut single's current position on several popular syndicated and online countdowns, as well as Billboard and Radio & Records rankings. Kudos and many thanks to the thread originator!
Finally, a truly cool link especially for our international readers--and for all of Bucky's fans who love the idea of him being a global hitmaker. The European Country Music Association site features tons of charts and stats from all over the EU, including airplay charts by country. Bucky's "A Different World" is listed as the #1 most played country song in the Netherlands, #2 on their overall airplay list for the week (scroll to end of page), and #9 in the United Kingdom. Bucky's rockin' the world, y'all! The ECMA also has a Yahoo group--a fun destination for the globally minded country music fan.
More soon--have a great Saturday!
Edited again to add a note from comments--Bucky and Rocky get a fun mention by fellow rising country star (and identical twin) Jake Owen during his visit to this week's CMT Top 20 Countdown...check here for repeat airtimes. And a belated thanks to Sunscreen of the Bucky Truck Stop at Rawkhands for the Country Weekly tip and so much more--stop in there and say hello today. A scan of Bucky's fashion page is posted there now, courtesy of the very kind Buckyflowers--some of you may want to turn up your AC before clicking this link. See you at the newssstand!--Winnie
