Thanks to the very generous people of WGLR Radio for sharing this memory from Bucky Covington's show in Wisconsin last weekend! Bucky, Rocky, Ducky and the band are still on the road wrapping up their hit 2011 Hometown Tour; click here for more details.
Bucky's upcoming new single, "I Wanna Be That Feeling", is making the news rounds today, too. CMT's Hazel Smith (who has been a kind supporter of Bucky's from way, way back) mentioned him and the song in today's Hot Dish column at CMT.com , noting that the single will be out in January. The Boot also has an article about Bucky's return to the airwaves, with a fun quote from Bucky himself via an earlier story at USA Today:
Bucky says he played "I Wanna Be That Feeling" one time several months ago but wasn't happy with the arrangement so he pulled it. "I had a fan come up who was almost mad at me: 'What happened to that Feeling song?'" he says. "I put it back into the set with a new guitar player, and it seems like folks are just loving it."
But wait, there's more! The Taste Of Country blog has a review of Bucky's new single by writer Billy Dukes, with this thought-provoking observation: " Covington has always had the one quality that aspiring musicians hope for: an unmistakable voice. This song is humble and a little clunky but perfectly memorable."

Looks like the excitement is brewing...could it be that Bucky's new tune hits your local country radio airwaves even sooner than you think? It's always good to keep an ear out for those "new music challenge" features. In the meantime, if you'd like to listen to Bucky and his band play this one live and loud, get to a show! The tour bus stops next at Bucky, Rocky and Ducky's hometown, Rockingham NC, for a show at Suede on Friday, November 25th; click here for more details. On Saturday, November 26, party with Bucky and the band at the Beaver Bar in Murrells Inlet, SC. Tickets are available online via eTix, and you'll find directions to the venue right here. We'll see you soon--have a great evening!
