Bucky Covington is finding himself surrounded by pink as he and fiancée, Monarch Publicity’s Katherine Cook, welcome baby girl Kennedy Taylor Covington to the family. Born October 10 in Nashville, Kennedy is the first child for the couple who met in early 2007 and became engaged in 2010. The 18”, 6 lb. 12 oz. baby girl is already making headlines as her arrival was heralded on People.com.
“We are beyond excited to start our life as a family and can’t wait to see what adventures this little blessing has in store for us,” the first-time father tells People. “The nursery is done, the bags were packed and I googled how to get to the hospital. This parenthood thing is pretty easy so far!”
Baby Kennedy and new mother, Katherine Cook, are doing well and resting comfortably following this morning’s delivery. First-time father Bucky Covington is ecstatic!
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. He recently released “Buzzin’,” his first single as an independent artist and is currently in the studio working on new music and co-producing an upcoming project alongside Grammy nominated producer, Dale Oliver.
