New Bucky Covington TV appearances, weekend reminders and a chart check...

Bucky Covington spoke with ABC News about the fun of writing "Drinking Side of Country", the coolness of Shooter Jennings, his work with Help the Good Guys and more in this What's the Buzz interview spotlighting his excellent new album, Good Guys.  Bucky has a pair of new TV interviews on deck next week--see post for details. (Thanks to Mickey Milam for sharing this great segment at YouTube.)

Bucky Covington's fans have been busy this week--and we've been loving every minute of it!  We're closing in on the first week of the "Be a Hero, Save a Hero" fire-safety campaign (watch the full :30 video PSA here, and take the pledge to protect your home and our firefighters at, and spreading the word about that big pancake breakfast benefit and acoustic performance for Tristin Greer on Saturday morning at Chattanooga Fire Station No. 1 (218 E. Main St.--be there!)

All that, and we've got some fine music to support, too.  "Drinking Side of Country", Bucky's current single with Shooter Jennings, is hangin' tough at #60 on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart, and Good Guys is featured on Amazon mp3 this month, where it can be yours for a mere $5.

Looks like next week will be just as busy--Music With a Purpose, the sponsors of Bucky's 11/17 benefit show at the Stardust Drive-In Theater  in Watertown, TN, just Tweeted info about a couple of upcoming TV appearances...

On Monday (11/12), Bucky will appear on Fox 17's Tennessee Mornings around 8:00 am,  and on WSMV Channel 4's More at Midday at about 11:00 am.  If you're in Nashville, tune in and check him out!

Thanks to the very kind Kimberly for this front row view of Bucky Covington on stage in Southaven--check out his official concert calendar here.

We're going to hand it over to our talented blogger bud Fran at Buckytown USA for the weekend, but before we go, we'll post our usual important reminder--be sure to show Bucky some love at your local country station's request line, and vote for Bucky and Shooter at GAC's Top 50 Videos of the Year and at CMT Pure's Pure 12 Pack. Have a beautiful weekend, and enjoy those pancakes!

    Why did Fran have to shut down her blog?

  4. Hi, Anon...I wish I could answer your question, but I don't know why it happened, either. All I know is that I miss Buckytown already and that I wish Fran the very best in whatever she does next. She did a great job over there!
