Quick weekend preview: New Bucky Covington concert date, and more photos from the "Save A Hero" launch and the CMA Awards...

We had to close our "What's your favorite Good Guys album only track?" poll due to a tech snafu, but no matter--the winner ran away with a full 50% of the vote! Here's "Hold A Woman", a sexy standout both live and on Bucky Covington's hot new album, Good Guys--get yours now at Amazon, iTunes, the store, Bucky's official site, or at a music retailer near you.  (Thanks to Buckyteacher at YouTube for this terrific video.)

We'll start things off with a brand new concert date;  Bucky Covington will join Chris Cagle, Craig Campbell, The Farm, Katie Armiger, Greg Bates, Dustin Lynch, Jana Kramer, Edens Edge and Lauren Alaina for this year's KTEX 10 Man Jam.  It's happening on Saturday, December 8th at Winks Saloon in Brownsville, TX, and proceeds will benefit the Food Bank of the Rio Grande Valley.  There are many ways to get your tickets--check 'em all out right here, and enjoy!

It's been a busy week for Bucky, with the formal launch of the "Be A Hero, Save A Hero" fire-safety campaign in Nashville yesterday morning.  Zimbio has a gallery of Getty Images photos from the launch, as well as a sunny shot of Bucky on the CMA Awards red carpet later in the day.  Bucky Tweeted this fun shot of himself and that elegant fire truck today, and he also shared a link to his newly updated Facebook gallery.  Be sure to check out Help the Good Guys and Kidde on Facebook as the weekend rolls on. And as always, you're cordially invited to visit the website, take the pledge and share the pledge at Twitter and Facebook.  (Each time the pledge is shared, $1 will be donated to help injured firefighters and their families, via the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and Help the Good Guys.)

Thanks to Happydays for sharing this great concert photo of Bucky Covington on stage in Hamlet, NC.

"Drinking Side of Country"  is gracing the #59 spot on Music Row's Country Breakout Chart, and we know we'd like to hear it a lot more often on the radio!  Now's a good time to request Bucky and Shooter at your favorite country station, and show some love for that wild video at GAC's Top 20 Country Countdown and CMT Pure's Pure 12 Pack.

And are you ready for a little more voting?  It's that time of year again--GAC is readying their Top 50 Videos of the Year countdown and Bucky's got two hot songs on the ballot!  Both "I Wanna Be That Feeling" and "Drinking Side of Country" are listed--vote for them both here once a day, and spread the news!  (We'll have a button on the sidebar shortly.)

Many thanks to the awesome Fran at Buckytown USA for the kind heads up, and thanks to her for keeping us all up to date on Bucky's career each and every weekend.  We'll see you here on Monday evening--have a good one, everybody!
