Bucky Covington shares a smile from the stage at the Turning Stone Resort, 7/27; photo by the very generous Janie, who had one of the best seats in the house. You can enjoy more of her fantastic concert shots here (link fixed). Thanks so much, Janie! Bucky'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.
Just a few news bits to start off your Sunday:
Bucky Covington is Kix Brooks' special guest on this weekend's American Country Countdown; click here to find a local or streaming station carrying ACC Top 40 on Radiotime.com. (I haven't had a chance to hear this yet, but it'll no doubt be a fun meeting of two very witty minds...can't wait!)
A look at the a.m. Mediabase charts might bring on a feeling of happy deja vu; "A Different World" is once again #6 on the Mediabase weighted chart and #7 on the Top 500. What's new today is the massive size of that Top 500 bullet! Keep requesting "A Different World" at your favorite local and streaming country stations, and keep thinking about that sweet Top Five spot. Sure looks like that's just around the bend...
Also just around the bend--today's WSOC Redneck Yacht Club listener cruise sets sail with lots of Bucky Covington fans on hand for the fun. Stay tuned for photos, recaps and memories from this show as the coming week rolls on. Bucky, Rocky, Shaun, Hans and Don will be busy again this week, with a stop at the Ingham County Fair in Michigan tomorrow, and Bucky will appear with Sawyer Brown at the big WE Fest in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota on August 3rd. (Bookmark Bucky's official tour page for the very latest, and be sure to catch his excellent live show when he's in your town!)
Finally--yep, it's voting time again at CMT's Power Picks, where Bucky's video is one of the contenders to kick off Monday's program. Click here to go to the Power Picks main page and vote for Bucky now. The winning video in this weekend's voting will be shown Monday at 12 noon ET. We'll be watching...
More later today--have a lovely Sunday!
