Quick weekend preview: Bucky Covington in California Friday and Saturday, a video and a chart check (updated)

Another great shot from Stockton--Bucky Covington on stage at the Asparagus Festival, as captured by our talented Californian friend Minnie.  Thanks so much!

Bucky Covington is delighting his California fans with two shows this weekend--and he shared a little something for those of us who can't come along!  This fun video was posted to Bucky's Facebook earlier today.  Hmmm...a little behind the scenes intrigue.  Wonder if that door's been unlocked by now.  Hope so--thanks, Bucky!)

That car is headed to this evening's Country for Coaches benefit show in Woodland, sponsored by 101.9 the Wolf and featuring Bucky, Kip Moore, Jon Pardi, Due West, and Matt Gary. The concert takes place at the Yolo County Fairgrounds Arena (1250 East Gum Ave in Woodland, CA) with music beginning at 6 or so; there may be some tickets available at the door for $35, and with a lineup like that, it's well worth the trip...

Tomorrow, Bucky rocks the KATM Listener Appreciation Concert at Weber Point in downtown Stockton, CA.  Today's last ticket stop takes place shortly (between 5 and 7 p.m.  local time) at the Bankhead Theatre in Livermore, and you can also buy tickets for $10 cash at the KAT Country office in StocktonMontgomery Gentry, J.T. Hodges, Jon Pardi, Greg Bates and Jaida Dryer will all be there, and we hope you'll be there, too!

If you were there for Bucky's performance at the 8-Man Jam in Pittsburgh last week, you might see yourself in this newly posted gallery of backstage photos at Y 108's website.  Happy browsing...

"I Wanna Be That Feeling", Bucky's beautiful current single, is holding steady at #43 on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart for the second week in a row.  (I think I hear some request lines and some GAC and CMT Pure voting links callin' my name, y' about you?) It should be hitting the publicly-available Mediabase charts soon.  Top 40 could be just around the corner...

In the meantime, please be sure to check in with our good friend Fran at Buckytown USA for this weekend's hottest updates, photos and more this and every Saturday, Sunday and Monday morning.  (To those of you getting ready for CMA Fest next week--you lucky folks!--rest up and buy some extra batteries for those cameras, cause it's gonna be a sweet whirlwind.)  Have a great weekend!

Edited to add:  The CMA Fest site is updated, and Bucky Covington has a Fan Fair Hall booth number--say hi to him at Booth 739 this year.  If you missed out during the admittedly complicated Fan Fair autograph pass process,  you can still win one of a limited number of autograph passes through an on-site drawing at the Nashville Convention Center.
