Congratulations to America's newest (and perhaps most melodic?) honorary firefighter; Bucky Covington was presented with an engraved firefighter's hatchet during Sunday's benefit for Brad Dean, a Birmingham firefighter who was injured in the line of duty. To find out more about BLEVE's efforts to aid firefighters and police officers in times of need, click here. If you'd like to congratulate Bucky in person, Fran's Sunday and Monday posts at Buckytown USA are chock full of news about likely 2012 concert dates, and we'll repeat that info here. (These dates are technically unconfirmed; we'll both be on the lookout for more concert details as they become available.)
December 31st at Harrah's Las Vegas: Fran has posted that Bucky and his band will lead the party at Toby Keith's I Love This Bar inside Harrah's--there's a $25 per person ILTB admission or a $125 package for all 3 drinking venues, including drinks.
January 13th in Evansville, IN: No details yet, but if you're in the 99.5 WKDQ listening area, keep an ear out! (The station also has a Twitter and a Facebook where info on this concert might pop up soon...)
January 14th in Cottleville, MO: No details on this one so far, but 923 WIL in St. Louis might have more news as the weeks roll on.
Major thanks again to Fran for her wonderful weekend news gathering! Bookmark Buckytown USA for hot news, photos and videos every Saturday, Sunday and Monday. We'll be back soon, but we wanted to close with a link to Bucky's hot new single, "I Wanna Be That Feeling", now available at iTunes--be sure to check it out! More ASAP--W
