A CD for a cause, and a roundup of Bucky Covington concert reminders...

It's been a peaceful day so far (knock wood!) but we do have a few Bucky Covington concert tidbits to pass along this evening...

If you're lucky enough to have won tickets to Thursday's Y108's 8-Man Jam at the Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh, Scott Mervis of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has a little glimpse into the format of the acoustic show at his blog today.  He writes: "The artists will appear acoustically in sets of four and then jam on stage together with songs that they have made famous. All eight will gather for the finale."  And if you haven't managed to win your tickets, there's still a little time--the station will be giving them away through Thursday at 7 and 9 a.m., and at 1 and 5 p.m.  Good luck!

After that, the (new) bus rolls out West to join Kip Moore, Due West and Jon Pardi for 101.9 The Wolf's Country for Coaches benefit at the Yolo County Fairgrounds Arena (1250 East Gum Ave in Woodland, CA) on June 1stSeats are available online now at Brown Paper Tickets--and they're said to be going fast.

If you won't be at Bucky's next couple of shows, you can still enjoy his music and help out a worthy cause at the same time-- Bucky's Facebook posted a reminder about the now-available Help The Good Guys Presents Bucky Covington  CD.  Help the Good Guys raises awareness,  support and immediate financial help for firefighters, law enforcement officers and their families who are experiencing difficulties due to injury, illness, or death in the line of duty.  Bucky has been busy doing benefits and appearances as their official spokesman.  (He's got lots more charitable events on the horizon--see his schedule for details.)

We'll close with a gentle, repetitive nudge:  please vote for Bucky's new single, "I Wanna Be That Feeling", at GAC's Top 20 Country Countdown and CMT Pure's Pure 12 Pack, and give your local country station a nudge on the request line, too.  We'll be back soon--enjoy the evening!
