Speaking of Buckytown, Fran has posted some fantastic concert shots by Judy Lang that you're going to love! She's also got word on a new show for those who like to plan far ahead--looks like Bucky will be playing at the Putnam County Fair in Eleanor, WV on July 14th, 2012.
Bucky's frequent tour-mate Weston Burt just tweeted a link to these great photos from their show in Olney, IL last weekend. Many thanks to sponsoring station Freedom 92.9 for sharing them on their Facebook page, and to Mr. Burt for sharing the link.
Rocky Covington on stage at the '09 Rockingham homecoming show; thanks again to Buckyroo for this great shot.
Also via Twitter, thanks to everyone who tweeted a link to this thoughtful review of Bucky's new single, "I Wanna Be That Feeling", at CountryMusicLife.com. (It seems to be a review of Bucky's career to date, as well, and the writer has many positive things to say...)
We'll close with a quote from Bucky himself--we linked earlier to this article by Cindy Watts at The Tennessean's Tune In Music City blog, but this bit from Bucky jumped out at us today: "The album is all but done, but I’m still writing and we’re still looking at songs and if we come across a hit we’re going to cut it," Covington says. "We’re just having fun." The article goes on to note that eOne will release Bucky's new album around Spring 2012...could it be that there are some even newer songs that will turn up in Bucky's live set and later, on his album? You'll want to go to a show and hear for yourself! Bucky's official tour schedule is here, and Buckytown has a beautiful sidebar with lots of links and concert updates. Have a wonderful evening!
