Bucky Covington is known and loved as much for his engaging personality as for his formidable talent. Three hit singles have helped push his debut album toward gold status, and his tremendous likeability and down-home personal style win friends and fans as he tours the country. On stage, the long-haired North Carolinian shines with rock start charisma and country boy charm.
Fans have the opportunity to meet the recording artist at the Nashville Southern Women’s Show, which opens this week. In an appearance sponsored by Help The Good Guys and Local 140 Firefighters, Covington will perform and meet fans on Thursday, April 12 on the 107.5 The River Fashion stage as part of the annual shopping, food, education and fun extravaganza geared toward women. Covington’s appearance is part of The Local 140 Firefighter Fashion Show, where guests are encouraged to clap, shout and even whistle as our local heroes in formalwear (from Ambassadors Formalwear by Gilda) strut their stuff on the runway; all for charity.
Bucky Covington’s self-titled debut CD opened at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart with the biggest first week sales for any debut country artist that year. He went on to become the best selling debut artist of 2007 and delivered three consecutive Top 10 hit singles to country radio. In addition to competing on the fifth season of American Idol, Bucky’s national television appearances have included Good Morning America, Live with Regis and Kelly!, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Tonight Show and Fox & Friends.
