January 5, 2010 / NASHVILLE, TN – Lyric Street recording artist Bucky Covington is ready to rock the house tonight January 23, 2010 at the LHS Booster Club Country Showdown at the L.H.S. Auditorium in Liberal, KS. Doors at 7:00pm and show starts at 8:00pm. Tickets are $20 and available at the Crazy House. All ticket proceeds go to support the LHS Boosters. Following up his American Idol success, Bucky Covington is one of country’s most genuine and exciting entertainers—a man known and loved as much for his engaging personality as for his formidable talent. The talent has shone through on three consecutive Top 10 hit singles that have helped push his debut album toward gold status; his undeniable likeability and his ability to wear his stardom as comfortably as his jeans has done the rest. Both come together on stage, where the long-haired North Carolinian with the rocker’s charisma and the country boy charm thrills old and new fans alike as he criss-crosses the country.
“Being on the road gives me the chance to thank all of the fans who supported my music and helped get me where I am today,” says Bucky. “But the best thing may be when you're playing a show and the fans sing your song louder than you. It's hard to beat that."
With his self-titled debut album opening at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, Bucky earned a place in the forefront of a new generation of country singers. He became the best-selling debut artist of the class of 2007, with the best first-week sales and highest Top 200 debut for any male country artist in 15 years. He appeared on Good Morning America, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Live with Regis & Kelly and many others, became part of the Country Sings Disney project, and appeared in Hannah Montana: The Movie.
Now, with his forthcoming sophomore album I’m Alright to be released in 2010, he leaves behind newcomer status and emerges as one of the true standouts in contemporary country music.
