Update: A photo of Bucky with Bleve founder (and former police officer) Mickey Milam, WTHI's Barry Kent and WTHI's Eric Michaels is part of Country Aircheck today; check it out here (scroll down).
Bucky Covington's upcoming new single, "I Wanna Be That Feeling", gets a solid review by writer Amy Blizzard at DixieStreams.com today. Among her observations about the song, this stood out:
'I Wanna Be That Feeling' manages to place opposite qualities into one song and still make the result a pleasant one. For example, the single harbors an easygoing vibe without losing the underlying, ingrained edge in the arrangement which is vaguely reminiscent of Christian Kane. It also presents romantic, heartfelt sentiment without being trite, sappy or overdone.
Although the clarity of the lyrics presented in the vocals occasionally suffers, Bucky Covington nonetheless proves he has gained power as a singer over the years. 'I Wanna Be That Feeling' is a palatable, fun single and marks the start of a fine return to the country music scene.

Bucky's also featured at NewCountry.nl, a country music site based in the Netherlands and written in Dutch. His video for "A Different World" is in the spotlight on the front page today, and a link to an audio-only video of "I Wanna Be That Feeling" can be found in the "Op Dit Moment Bekeken" section of their video page. Nice to see some international attention, yes?
Closer to home, you can enjoy Bucky and his band live tonight in Kansas City at The Beaumont Club (bring an unwrapped, new $10 or up toy for a needy child to exchange for a ticket to The WOLF's Acoustic Christmas Concert ) and in Tremont, IL on Saturday night (12/3) at the Twisted Spoke Saloon. (The 12/2 show at 88 Broadway in Urbana, IL appears to have been cancelled: eTix is showing it as a cancellation and tickets have been taken off sale. If you were planning to attend, your best bet is to contact the venue at (217) 954-1008, (217) 359-6960 or firstname.lastname@example.org for the latest news.)
We'll be back with more soon--enjoy the evening!
