Quick news: Bucky Covington's racy weekend, "Drinking Side of Country" officially hits radio, photos by Hildi, Shannon and Kimberly and more...

Thanks to the very gracious Hildi for sharing this beautiful shot of Bucky Covington with the winner of this past weekend's charity Legends race at the Fairgrounds Speedway in Nashville.  The race was a fundraiser for the Nashville Local 140 Fire Fighter's Relief Fund and Help The Good Guys, an organization dedicated to assisting injured firefighters and their families.  Click here to preorder an IAFF Special Edition of Bucky's upcoming album, Good Guys, which will be released on September 11.

Last weekend was a very busy one for Bucky Covington and his band, and a lot of great photo memories are popping up online.  Hildi captured beautiful shots from the concert and race (more coming here soon), Shannon has a gorgeous photo album posted at Facebook, Kimberly Tweeted links to several great shots today, and Fran of Buckytown USA fame shared photos, links and a video of Bucky's race over the weekend.  Huge, major thanks to all of Bucky's generous fans for giving those of us who couldn't be there a taste of the fun!

  posted this awesome 14 minute recap of the August 11th concert and race at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville, complete with a little performance footage and trophy presentations.  Thanks!

Your next chance to be there for the fun of a live Bucky Covington show happens this coming Thursday, August 16th, when he and his band rock the Obion County Fair in Union City, TN. That's just the beginning of another jam-packed weekend--they'll also play the Parkersburg Homecoming Festival on August 17th and the Coyote CountryFest in Las Vegas on August 18th.  (Bucky's got lots of live dates ahead, and new ones are being added all the time;  check out his official calendar and bookmark the sidebar at Buckytown to find out when he'll grace a stage near you.)

"Drinking Side of Country", Bucky's megahot duet with Shooter Jennings, should be gracing a radio near you pretty soon, too!  Unofficially, it's already at country radio;  officially, according to Music Row's Country Breakout chart, it's "going for adds" on August 13th--tomorrow--and we'd really like to know if you've been hearing it at your station!  The smash hit video helps a lot, buzzwise, and our requests (you knew that was coming, didn't you?)  will help a lot, too.  Y'all know the drill by now: please hit the phones, make those e-requests, and keep an ear out for new-song challenges and "keep it or kick it" segments.  Bucky's got a hot song, a hot video and some very eager fans...sounds like a recipe for success.

Speaking of Bucky's hot video, remember to tune in at 8:56 am Eastern tomorrow for the GAC-TV debut of "Drinking Side of Country".  We're hoping that one gets added to GAC's Top 20 Country Countdown soon; in the meantime, be sure to vote for "I Wanna Be That Feeling" there, and for both of Bucky's singles at CMT Pure's Pure 12 Pack.  Have a great night, all!
