...I periodically check to see whatever happened to Bucky Covington from last season's American Idol, and was excited to hear it was going to actually get a recording contract!
Well, word is out - his new album's going to be released April 17, and I'll seriously have to consider buying it! Now the samples I've heard at the first of the following two sites aren't the best, but it could certainly grow on me...
I happen to have his Idol covers of Stevie Wonder's 'Superstition' and Pat Green's 'Wave on Wave' on my iPod, and I really do like listening to them! Heck, I'd never even HEARD 'Wave on Wave' before Bucky covered it.
If you are an American Idol fan, or if you just watched parts of last season, or if you're a country fan - what are your thoughts on Bucky? I have to admit the first time I saw him I thought he looked like an escaped convict and I wanted him off immediately. But he grew on me, even though it bothered me he didn't enunciate well. Did we really need someone on there who often sounded like he had a mouth full of marbles? But I enjoyed watching him grow as the season progressed, and found I really liked him and most of his songs. So, yeah, I might just have to get his new album! :)
