We are excited to announce that American Idol Season 5 alumni, Bucky Covington, will be attending the 2014 Waltrip Brothers’ Charity Championship!
Bucky Covington is that most remarkable of entertainers – a man known as much for his engaging personality as his formidable talent. Both come together on stage, where the North Carolinian, 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 three 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.
