And the good news just keeps on comin'! Bucky Covington tweeted this terrific update yesterday evening: "2012 CMA Music Fest - MARK YOUR CALENDARS! currently scheduled to perform at the Bud Light Stage at Bridgestone Arena Plaza: Sat, June 9 5pm" Congratulations to all of Bucky's CMA Fest-going fans! The Tune In Music City blog at The Tennessean has the full free stages lineup--check it out and get ready for a great time in Nashville...
Another note for those attending CMA Fest--this year's Fan Fair Hall autograph process will be different from the "first come, first served" scene of years past. An online entry process will allow you to get your autograph passes ahead of time; click here for more information on the new arrangements. (And good luck!)
More news from the CMA Fest file; on Saturday morning, June 9th, Bucky, along with Carrie Underwood, Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina and many more country and media stars will be part of the City of Hope Celebrity Softball Challenge. It's happening at 9 am at Greer Stadium (534 Chestnut St. in Nashville), and tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster.
Last on the Fest related list, but definitely not least--looks like there will indeed be a Fan Club party in Nashville this year! Keep it tuned to all the usual spots (especially the excellent Buckytown USA blog) for updates and details...
That trade ad up there is beautiful, isn't it? Country Aircheck's weekly edition was graced with Bucky's smiling face, and the ad tells the story--lots of radio stations (11 as of last night!) added his new single, "I Wanna Be That Feeling", upon its official release yesterday. We hope your local country station is among them--if not, call 'em up and let them know you'd love to hear Bucky! You can also vote for his hot new video at GAC and CMT by clicking those buttons at the top right of your screen.
Updated! Just in via Twitter: Bucky Covington will be the guest of HDNet's Honky Tonk TV for a segment to be aired later this season. (We'll get that airdate for you as soon as it is available.) The taping takes place at about 6:30 tonight at the Hard Rock Cafe Nashville--Bucky mentions that it's free and open to the public--and if you'd like to ask Bucky a question, tweet host Roxy at
