We received a press release today about one of our favorite American Idol alumni, Bucky Covington. Bucky has had some great music on the radio, and Country’s Chatter has certainly tried our best to get to all of his shows in this area. He has partnered with a new management group, and we are hoping this will mean some great new music from Bucky very soon. Here is the press release!
With a solid foundation of 3 top 10 hits and 6 charted singles, TV and Country Music Star Bucky Covington has partnered with Clearview Artist Management to guide his career for continued success as an independent artist.
Forward thinkers and industry veterans Steve Schweidel and Sean Carpenter are the perfect fit to guide an established artist through the hoops and hurdles that accompany going Independent in today’s ever changing music industry.
“The business of artist management has changed. As the entertainment industry itself enters a new era of figuring out how to monetize art, Clearview Artist Management is designed to harken back to a time when personal involvement was the keystone to success,” says CVA founder Steve Schweidel, an innovator with experience on the road and in the studio. “Clearview is proof that nothing beats direct attention.”
“We are very excited and honored to be working with Bucky,” Sean Carpenter adds. “He is personable, genuine and one of the best artists in the business.”
Clearview Management’s roster includes the multi-platinum country rock veterans Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, James Otto, Elizabeth Lyons and Champion Bull Rider Ty Murray.
About Bucky Covington: Bucky Covington is a man known as much for his engaging personality as his formidable talent. Both come together on stage, where the North Carolina native with a rocker’s charisma and country boy charm thrills old and new fans alike as he criss-crosses the country. With his first album, Bucky earned a place at the forefront of a new generation of country singers scoring 3 consecutive Top 10 hits including “A Different World” peaking at #4 on the Country Charts. He became the best selling debut artist of that year, with the best first-week sales and highest Top 200 debut of any male country artist in 15 years.
Bucky is currently in studio finishing his new project. He has been writing and producing his own music along side Grammy nominated producer Dale Oliver. Many fans have watched him from his first days as a finalist on American Idol, and have seen him mature as an artist and yet maintain the unspoiled outlook that makes him the complete package- the guy next door with talent and charisma to burn. As he comes into his own both musically and personally, Bucky Covington is more than fulfilling the promise he brought to the table initially, and he continues to establish himself as one of the most exciting country performers on the contemporary country scene.
