Bucky Covington is one of the few country artists who has moved on from the popular television competition show American Idol. Covington, who placed eighth in season five, was born on November 8, 1977 in Rockingham, North Carolina. He and his twin brother Rocky auditioned for season five of American Idol, though Bucky was the one who advanced to the top twelve. After Idol, Covington moved on to perform on the 2006 GAC Country Music Christmas tour before releasing his debut, self-titled album in 2007.
Covington’s first single, “A Different World,” peaked at Number Six on the U.S. Country charts, followed by “It’s Good to Be Us” and “I’ll Walk” at Numbers Eleven and Ten, respectively. His second album, I’m Alright, released singles like “I Want My Life Back” and “A Father’s Love (The Only Way He Knew How),” both which made it in the Top 50. However, the album itself was never released. His third and most current album, Good Guys, was released in September of 2012 and featured the single “I Wanna Be That Feeling.”
His first album debuted on the Billboard 200 at number four after selling over 60,000 copies. It also debuted at Number One on the Top Country Albums chart, joining Billy Ray Cyrus’ 1992 debut album as the best opening week for a debut album. His track “Empty Handed” appeared in the NASCAR 08 in the in-game soundtrack.
