A live hometown memory--Bucky Covington and his band rocked Rockingham, NC with this performance of "Evel Knievel" back in '09. Thanks to buckywild08 for posting this at YouTube!

As we mentioned earlier today, tickets for this coming weekend's Hometown Country concerts starring Bucky Covington and Kellie Pickler are going very quickly. The Cole Auditorium in Hamlet, NC posted an update via Twitter about the possibility of a sellout for Friday night's show; call them at 910-410-1690 for the latest news on availability. Bucky and Kellie will also be performing tomorrow night (Thursday, October 25th) at the Cole Auditorium, and you can dial that same number for your seats. (We'd suggest calling ASAP...)
A classic concert shot: Bucky Covington, Ducky Medlock (center) and Rocky Covington on stage in Rockingham. Thanks again to our mega-talented friend Judy Lang.
Bucky's hometown show was also the focus of two interviews with local newspapers; he spoke to the Richmond County Daily Journal about his travels around the USA, to the Laurinburg Exchange about his musical journey from Laurinburg to Hollywood and Nashville, and to both newspapers about the fun of working with Kellie Pickler and the honor of being the spokesman for Help the Good Guys.
Another upcoming show is happening not too far from Bucky's new home base--enjoy him on November 17th, when he'll headline an afternoon benefit concert at the Stardust Drive-In Theater (310 Purple Tiger Drive, Watertown, TN) sponsored by Music With a Purpose. Tickets are $15 (kids 12 and under get in free) and VIP passes are available for $10 extra. Buy your seats online, and get ready for a day of fun!
And we've got a new show added for 2013--Bucky's fans in Wisconsin can get ready to party with him and his band at the HGCWD Events Center in Baraboo on January 26th. We'll have more info on this show as it becomes available...
If you haven't already shown Bucky and Shooter and "Drinking Side of Country" some voting-style love at GAC's Top 20 Country Countdown and CMT Pure's Pure 12 Pack, there's no time like the present! We'll also squeeze in a heartfelt recommendation--Bucky's new album Good Guys is a winner, and you can get yours at Amazon, iTunes, the HelpTheGoodGuys.com store, Bucky's official site, or at a retailer near you. Have a beautiful night!
