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 singles to country radio (“Different World”, “I’ll Walk”, and “Good To Be Us”), and a total of six charted singles.
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. Bucky’s recent singles include last summer’s feel good tune “Buzzin”, and “Drinking Side of Country” (duet with Shooter Jennins), which reached over 2 Million views on YouTube in only 2 short days following its premiere and features cameos by country stars Kellie Pickler, Shooter Jennings, and other celebrity friends.
Bucky recently released his first independent project in the form of a 6 song EP titled, “Happy Man”, which has produced 2 singles charting on Music Row charts so far. Covington co-produced the project alongside his long time producer, Grammy nominated Dale Oliver.
