Some rockin' sunshine on a cloudy day: Rocky Covington, Bucky Covington and Kevin Wood get the crowd revved up in this great concert shot by the very kind Judy Lang, taken at the Iowa Speedway last week. For your chance to enjoy Bucky and his band live and loud, click here.
Today we honor our brave men and women in uniform who have made the ultimate sacrifice--our thoughts and prayers are with our military families this Memorial Day.
Our very good friend Fran at Buckytown USA is on it! Many thanks to her for keeping us all informed this and every weekend; here's a quick rundown of all the exciting news she shared:
Bucky Covington and his band have a few new opportunities to rock your world live coming up: they'll return to Wild Bills Atlanta on Friday, June 22nd for a mega-hot night of music. Tickets are $15 in advance for general admission, $25 for a seat at a table and $50 side stage seats. Snag yours right now at Ticketmaster.
Also coming up: Bucky and the Lost Trailers will be the stars of the Kix 106 Smokin' Summer Showcase at the Snowden Grove Amphitheater in Memphis on July 5th. This one's free, and the station is offering a chance for you to win Gold Circle tickets--click here for the entry form, and good luck!
And for those of you lucky enough to be in or near Music City in early June, you'll have yet another chance to say "hello" to Bucky when he and fellow favorites Bo Bice, Melinda Doolittle and Josh Gracin (among many others!) meet on June 5th for Celebrity Go-Go, a benefit for Hear the Music Live. This non-profit organization works to give opportunities to foster youth, so you'll be doing good while going head-to-head with celebrity drivers in a series of mini-races. There's also a Mini Golf Challenge the same day (participants will be playing in a foursome with a randomly-selected celeb) and a post-event barbecue party. Register for one or both events at the Celebrity Go-Go site, and hurry--space
is very limited.
We'll close with a link to some cool "vintage" concert photos that just hit the Flickr-sphere: thanks to CoolCat433 for sharing these shots from Bucky's show with Joe Nichols in Fredricksburg, MD a couple of years back. Newer photos? Y108's got you covered with this great gallery from last week's 8 Man Jam.
As always, a nag...um, "reminder" is in order: please vote for Bucky's new single, "I Wanna Be That Feeling", on GAC's Top 20 Country Countdown and CMT Pure's Pure 12 Pack every day, and request it at your local country radio station. We'll see you here tomorrow--have a great night!
