Here's a beautiful way to get Sunday off to a rockin' start--kareninmd was there for Bucky Covington's wild and wonderful show at the Cancun Cantina in Hanover on Friday, and she very kindly shares her photos (and two video clips) in this great Photobucket album. Huge thanks to kareninmd for letting us enjoy a bit of the fun!
And here's an update from the official DeKalb Cornfest site about today's activities--the area has been hit hard with flooding this week, but it sounds like today's show will happen as scheduled:
Corn Fest activities will continue on Saturday, August 25, 2007 and Sunday, August 26, 2007.
**Please note the following changes:
Auto Fest is being relocated to 3rd Street downtown DeKalb. The Bike Rally and 10K Run/3K Walk and Diaper Derby/Toddler Trot have been cancelled due to course flooding. The Historical Tours have been cancelled. For more information, please call the Corn Fest hotline at 815-748-2676 (CORN).
If you're traveling a long way to DeKalb for the show, it's probably best to call that hotline before you head out. Below are the details about today's concert:Sunday, 08/26/2007, 04:30 p.m.

And Bucky's part of today's Crook & Chase Country Countdown, too--there's a funny soundbite in which he tells a story that "not even his parents know" (guess they do now!) about what happened when he and Rocky went out for a not-quite- authorized drive as teenagers. If your local station doesn't carry Crook & Chase, click here for a list of stations via Radiotime. All times shown are Central--be sure to adjust for your area. I haven't heard this yet , but a kind anonymous commenter has, and she mentioned that Bucky's tale comes just before "A Different World" is played. (He's #6 on their countdown this week.) Thanks, Anon! Sounds like it'll be worth waiting for...
Finally, we'll do a quick sweep of the charts, where Bucky's got a big hit and a future hit decorating the page. "A Different World" is currently #15 on the weighted chart and #16 on the Top 500; and Bucky's September single, "It's Good to Be Us", is already showing some pre-release starpower with at #82 on the weighted chart and #92 on the Top 500. Since the song is not officially released yet and much of the airtime is coming from songfights and challenges, the Mediabase watch for "It's Good to Be Us" is more of a fun diversion at this point--but hang on tight, y'all. The serious chart watching will begin soon enough! For now, though, if your station is playing Bucky's new song, feel free to call and let them know you enjoyed it...
More very soon!--Winnie
