Bucky Covington charms the crowd with a song during last Sunday's WSOC listener cruise; photo by the very gracious Happydays. You can enjoy more of her great concert shots here. Thanks again, Happydays! 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.
(I'll be gone for in the mornings for the next few days-- jury duty calls-- but I wanted to have the handy links for the Mediabase weighted and Top 500 charts right up top for you. If Bucky's "A Different World" is officially Top Five by the time you read this, feel free to get the party started!)
Bucky's video for "A Different World" will face a head- to-head challenge on Wednesday's CMT Power Picks, which begins at 12 noon ET; click here to go directly to the Power Picks main page. Bucky's matchup will happen about mid-show, so at noon, hit the "Vote Now" button, keep that voting window open and get ready to mouse-click away...
Looking for souvenirs from Bucky's recent concerts? BusyGemini was at the Barnstable County Fair show last weekend, and she graciously shared this link to her gallery of shots from the day at the Fox boards. (She also posted a three-part video of Bucky's "I'll Walk" performance at YouTube--thanks for sharing the fun!) And here are two "official" photo galleries you'll love--WGNA's Countryfest photos are posted at the station's site, and from way back in the spring, here's 94.9 Star Country's Flickr photoset from the Kenny Rogers/Bucky Covington/Linda Davis concert in May. Bucky's current concert schedule is listed at his official site--come on out and enjoy Bucky, Rocky, Don, Shaun and Hans when they hit a stage near you!
And of course, keep requesting "A Different World" at your favorite local and streaming country stations. Top Five is a signpost to celebrate in style!
Finally, a shoutout to a very good friend--AmaTexMom is in our thoughts and prayers today as she prepares for surgery this coming week. Here's wishing one of Bucky and Rocky's sweetest fans all the strength and love in the world.
I'll be back late this afternoon with a full post--see you then, and have a wonderful Wednesday!
