Bucky Covington is “Buzzin”

bucky covington buzzin

Country music star Bucky Covington is thrilled to release his first single as an independent artist, “BUZZIN,” to country radio. “BUZZIN,” the lead single from Bucky’s current project expected out later this year, is the perfect summer-time theme song, written by Brad Hull and produced by Covington himself and Dale Oliver. The song delivers to country radio this week via PlayMPE and CDX, and brings Covington’s fans a new and exciting side twist to his vocal style.

After deciding to go independent last year, 2014 is starting off great for Bucky Covington. He is currently in studio wrapping up his new independent project, which he is co-producing with Grammy nominated Dale Oliver, and gearing up for upcoming tour dates. Covington plans to release an EP showcasing his new sound in the fall, coincidentally around the same time of the expected birth of his first child.

A baby is on the way for country music star Bucky Covington and fiancée, Monarch Publicity’s Katherine Cook! The couple, who have been inseparable since they met in early 2007 and became engaged in 2010, just found out they will become three with the arrival of their first child this fall. The pair broke the news earlier today on People.com.

“We are so excited to share this news with friends and family! Expecting a child really puts things into perspective. I hope the baby gets my legs, and her patience! Haha!” shares the soon-to-be-father, Bucky Covington.

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. Bucky’s last single, “Drinking Side of Country” (duet with Shooter Jennings), reached over 2 Million views on YouTube in only 2 short days following its premiere and features cameos by country star Kellie Pickler, Freestyle motocross rider Cowboy Kenny Bartram, and TNA Wrestler Mickie James. Bucky is currently in the studio working on new music and co-producing an upcoming project alongside Grammy nominated producer, Dale Oliver.
