Quick news: Bucky Covington in Watertown and Virginia Beach (photo links) and a little "Hokey Pokey"...

Many thanks to Hildi for graciously sharing this shot of Bucky Covington onstage in Watertown, TN.  Browse Bucky's concert schedule at his official site, and don't miss a beat!

Bucky Covington and his band have had a busy weekend, indeed--first, they headlined a sunny Saturday afternoon benefit show in Watertown, TN, and it was captured beautifully in this Spotted gallery posted by the Lebanon DemocratMusic With a Purpose, sponsors of the event, tweeted this fun photo, and local favorite performer Alicia Smith shared this view of the show getting underway and a terrific backstage glimpse.  We like all those great shots, but we absolutely loved this one of Bucky onstage with special guest star MsBuckyfan/Kimberly--thanks to everyone who gave us a photographic taste of Saturday's good times!

This afternoon, Bucky and Help the Good Guys joined forces with Hall Nissan in Virginia Beach to present a Recycled Ride to a local firefighter and his family.  97.3 The Eagle was there, and they captured the event in this photo album posted at Facebook today.

Bucky also visited with the team at Fire Rescue TV;  their Facebook features a photo of Bucky with Fire Rescue TV Marketing Director Jennifer Hux and Administrative Assistant Katy Tecson.  (Looks like they're in front of a green screen--could another PSA be in the works?  Stay tuned...)

A great vintage Bucky Covington concert shot from the very kind Lacypony--thanks again!

Bucky and HTGG are still busy with some ongoing projects, of course--from now until 12/31, all proceeds from downloads of Bucky's current single, "Drinking Side Of Country",  will benefit the International Association of Firefighters Relief Fund for East Coast fire fighters who lost their homes or had severe damage caused by Hurricane Sandy.  There's also a very cool countertop box filled with the IAFF Special Edition of Bucky's new CD Good Guys available to firefighter locals, retail businesses, your office, salon, shop--proceeds from the sale of the box also go to help firefighters affected by the hurricane.  (See this video for details presented by Bucky and HTGG's Mickey Milam.)

Finally, here's a sweet article about a rare addition to Bucky, Rocky Covington and Ducky Medlock's standard acoustic set--have you ever heard them play the "Hokey Pokey"?  A very young audience had that privilege last week when the trio performed at a HeadStart in Lafayette, TN;  the Macon County Times has the story (and some seriously cute crowd photos) here.

As always, you're invited to join us in requesting Bucky's "Drinking Side of Country" at your local country radio station, and voting for Bucky and Shooter Jennings at GAC's Top 50 Videos of the Year and at CMT Pure's Pure 12 PackHave a stellar night!
