Just reminding y'all that Bucky Covington is preparing to release his long-awaited sophomore album GOOD GUYS on September 11, 2012. He and Shooter Jennings kick ass in the new duet “Drinking Side Of Country” and Bucky's friends Kellie Pickler, X-Games medalist Kenny Bartram and TNA wrestler Mickie James have cameos in the new video.  The video had an amazing debut, with more than 800,000 views within a 24-hour period and the numbers are climbing daily. These stats make the clip #1 on YouTube’s “Popular Around The Web” music chart and one of the Top Trending Videos overall.

Over the last year, Bucky has been working closely with a cause he deeply believes in, Help The Good Guys and the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) Charitable Foundation which support injured firefighters and burn victims. In the fall of 2011, Bucky dropped what we was doing and traveled on a minute's notice to Birmingham to take part in a fundraiser for injured fire fighter Brad Dean. Enough money was raised to allow the family to keep their house and decrease accumulating debt and medical bills. When Bucky saw firsthand how fire fighters risk everything to save others but don’t have anyone there for them when they're the victims, he was compelled to help. He continues to actively support the cause through fundraisers and hospital visits. Proceeds from the first week sales of his new record will be donated to the IAFF Charitable Fund.

Bucky’s new 12-song cd, GOOD GUYS, includes the raucous duet with Shooter Jennings, which Bucky co-wrote and produced. Other favorites include “Hold A Woman” and “Mama Must Be Prayin’.” Stay tuned for purchase information coming soon!
