Lyric Street’s Bucky Covington is gearing up to release ‘Live From Rockingham”, a 5-song digital exclusive EP recorded at his recent hometown concert in Rockingham, NC. Hitting the virtual realm on November 17, the release features live versions of Bucky’s Top 10 hits "A Different World," "It’s Good To Be Us" and "I’ll Walk" plus his brand new single "Gotta Be Somebody" as well as a special preview of "Mexicoma" from his much anticipated sophomore album.
Also packaged with these tracks is Bucky’s latest music video for "Gotta Be Somebody," spotlighting the crowd of over 6,000 fans, friends and Rockingham locals who attended Bucky’s homecoming festivities. The video made its premiere splash on CMT.com where it quickly rose to top streaming status and debuted at No. 1 on the elite, all fan voted CMT Pure 12-Pack Countdown.
Recently, Bucky Covington released to radio his brand new single "Gotta Be Somebody," his country style version of Nickelback’s No. 1 hit, written by band members Chad Kroeger and Ryan Peake, along with co-producer Joey Moi. Currently climbing the country charts, this song is from his upcoming sophomore album, I’m Alright, to hit streets in spring 2010.
Bucky Covington’s self-titled debut CD opened at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart in April 2007 with the biggest first week sales for any debut country artist that year. He’s the best selling debut artist of the 2007 class and is one of only three male country artists since 2005 to have three consecutive top 10 singles from his debut album. In addition to competing on the fifth season of "American Idol," Bucky’s national television appearances have included Live with Regis and Kelly, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Good Morning America and Fox & Friends.
I’ve seen Bucky in concert a few times, and he really puts on a fantastic show. We’ve had him at a few of our area fairs, and I’m really hoping we get him back in our area again sometime soon. He’s done a lot since competing on American Idol, and is definitely one of the non-winners who has made a name for himself in the music industry.
Here’s one of Bucky’s very short Interview clips – about the song “I Want My Life Back.”
That’s all for this morning. Talk to you all real soon. You guys drop me a line when you have a chance. You know I love hearing form all of you!
