Mike Clifton of Local Sports Online was on hand for Bucky Covington's concert at Wild Bill's in Atlanta in June, and his stunning gallery of shots from the show is an absolute must-see. Thanks again to Mr. Clifton for his incredible images--his contact info is available at the gallery link, and his beautiful work speaks for itself. Enjoy! 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.
Bucky's video for "A Different World" will face a head-to-head challenge on today's CMT Power Picks, which begins at 12 noon ET; click here to go directly to the Power Picks main page. Bucky's matchup happens during the first half of the show--so at noon, hit the "Vote Now" button, keep that voting window open and get ready to mouse-click away...

For some beautiful words and pictures that underscore just how much fun the Bucky Covington live experience can be, head over to his official MySpace blog for some new additions to the "concert photos and memories" post. Be sure to add Bucky Covington as a MySpace friend, and you'll be able to share your good times, too...
Bucky and company may be enjoying a short break, but the charts never rest! Although it isn't officially released until September 10th, Bucky's second emerging hit, "It's Good to Be Us", is already starting its sweet climb on the Mediabase airplay charts. The song is currently gracing the Mediabase weighted chart at #75 with a bullet, and it's #79 on the Top 500. The helpful BuckyCovingtonFans MySpace Blog has information on the stations that have given the song some pre-release affection--if your local country station is on the list, be sure to call them up next time you hear Bucky and say thanks! (Congrats to Bucky's fans in Riverside and Chattanooga--looks like KFRG and WOGT have hopped on board in a big way. Tell them you're lovin' it!)
Bucky is reportedly filming a video for "It's Good to Be Us" sometime in September, according to a kind fan who spoke with him recently. No word on director or theme, but one thing's for sure--we're all very eager to see it. In the meantime, even though the sunlit video of "A Different World" has fallen from the GAC Top Twenty Country Countdown and from CMT's Top Twenty Countdown, a vote for it there is still a lovely way of showing support.
We'll close with a link to the official Cancun Cantina photo gallery, where Bucky's concert performance and his many (we mean lots) of cute poses with fans were captured by the venue's photographer and posted in the gallery. It'll take a while to get through all of the shots...pack a lunch and enjoy!
Have a transcendent Tuesday--see you soon!
