Bucky Covington rocked the crowd in Love's Park IL earlier this year; major thanks to the mega-talented Judy Lang for sharing this photo!
Here's the concert news straight from WGLR's Facebook:
Tickets go on sale (Thursday 10/20/11) @ Tri-Com Radio Shack in Platteville starting @ 8:30am... then (Friday 10/21/11) @ Queen B Radio, 51 Means Drive also in Platteville... $15 in advance, $20 the day of (if any remain... last show sold out in 4 days... in the middle of a blizzard)*
Bucky Covington and his band are definitely favorites in the area; this will be their third engagement at the BARn in recent memory, and as WGLR's writer mentioned, all their shows there so far have been sellouts. (In other words--get your tickets ASAP, y'all!)
Other concert reminders--party with Bucky and his band at the State Theater in Starkville MS on October 21st (tickets are $12 in advance at TicketBiscuit; $15 at the door) and enjoy a free show at the Bluffs and Bayou Music Festival in Vidalia, LA on October 22nd. Bucky's also set to perform at an all-ages Halloween bash at the River Room Saloon in Shelbyville, TN on October 29th; call (209)598-5384 or click here for tickets and more information.

Bucky's past weekend was full of fun--he and a host of country music stars participated in Dierks Bentley's Miles and Music for Kids concert and ride yesterday, and photos from the event are beginning to pop up online. Here are some just posted by the fine folks at Country Music Tattle Tale; and Star Sightings is posting shots here even as we speak. (Not sure who Mr. "Covingham" is, but the fellow in that image sure looks like Bucky...) Finally, singer/songwriter Jason Lee Thomason (@jasonleemusic) tweeted two fun shots from the day: here's Bucky being interviewed, and sharing a smile with a friend of Jason's.
