Now there’s a headline for you. I am sure I’m not the only one ready for a new Bucky Covington single. The single is called “A Father’s Love (The Only Way He Knew How). According to a press release I received, the single was digitally released to country radio yesterday at 2 p.m. So it’s time to do two things – turn the radio up and keep listening for Bucky’s new song, and call your favorite radio station to request it.
Here’s the press release for you all: With a self-titled debut album that has gone on to sell nearly 500 thousand copies and a string of top 10 hits including “A Different World,” “It’s Good To Be Us” and “I’ll Walk,” Lyric Street recording artist Bucky Covington returns with his newest single, “A Father’s Love (The Only Way He Knew How).”
Beginning Monday morning (March 1), Bucky Covington will give PEOPLE.COM an exclusive FIRST LISTEN to “A Father’s Love” which tells the story of a father who shows his children how much he loves them by taking care of all the little things in life. Written by Liz Hengber, Thom Sheperd and Steve Williams, the featured track is from his upcoming sophomore album, I’m Alright, releasing fall 2010.
"We were basically done with the new CD when this song came across the desk…the minute I heard it I knew that I had to cut it," said Bucky. "It reminds me of my dad when I was growing up and I think many people will relate to it too!"
The single will be available beginning Monday at 2pm central via PlayMPE for airplay on country radio.
