I Think Bucky Covington is Awesome

Having read the response to Rob Fischer’s classless ripping of country superstar Bucky “The Buckman” Covington, I just want to make it perfectly clear that I think Bucky Covington is one of the greatest artists in the history of country music – no, ANY music.  The Buckman combines the lyrical brilliance of John Lennon with the down home style of George Strait and throws in the music arrangement of a young Mozart to boot.  Just look at him!

If that mustache and soul patch don’t say “Soulful Country Legend-in-the-Making”, I don’t know what does.  Looking into his eyes is like looking into the eyes of country music itself!  Remember, “I’ll Walk” is burning up the phones!  Bucky is way better than that clown Daughtry or these nobodies on American Idol this year.

Anyway, I just wanted to make Bucky Nation aware that I have no problem with Bucky and I am just shocked and appalled that Rob Fischer does.  Fish is an ass.




  1. Thanks for your positive comments about Bucky. Glad you like him and his music. Many of us are Daughtery listeners also so can’t agree with you on that, but otherwise what you said is great and much appreciated.

  2. I’m a big fan of Bucky and Daughtry, both their CDs are absolutely great! But i think that they are completely different artists that can’t be compared….2 different genres…

    anyway, i loved your post because i’m a bigger Bucky fan…

  3. I think is has a brilliant future ahead of him and there is no reason why anyone cannot listen to both Bucky and Daughtery. I flip between pop and country stations on my radio all the time!

    Some people just do not “get” Bucky and never will but his gravelly voice and sexy eyes just make my day!

  4. Dude,

    Seriously I had a lot of respect for you as a journalist. That unfortunately is all gone now. First you don’t “TUG ON SUPERMAN’S CAPE” Rob Fischer is the MAYOR OF MEMPHIS SPORTS!!! SAVOIE is the VP and WINEBERGER is the Minister of Defense so step off.

  5. Thank you for your kind comments about Bucky. I’m a huge Bucky fan and I feel the same way about him as you do. Gotta add that I like Daughtry though also, but Bucky is definately NUMBER 1 for me!

  6. Thanks for the Bucky support!! Yes he is going to go far in the music business. Have you heard I’ll walk? If not you might want to grab some kleenex its a beautiful song and wonderfully sung. Okay so that’s probably had grammer errors all over it. lol Anyway Love your post I also like Daughtry even though I mainly listen to country. He also has a lot of talent and that gravely edge in his voice as well.

    You know how you can tell someone who was born to sing? Look at the old American Idol footage. Both Chris and Bucky couldn’t quite keep their hands still. You can look at their faces and see how strongly the music courses through them. Some people are born for this business and some aren’t. Since the first time I saw Bucky sing you could tell he was meant to sing. He had the guts, determination and talent from the beginning. What we have here is a sincere guy from a small town with a ton of talent working his butt of to make his dreams come true. We are so proud of him for going after his dreams it took a lot of guts.

  7. I have loved Bucky ever since AI. He is doing a lot better then some of the people who won AI. He has worked hard to get where he is and he is one of the nicest people I have ever met. He is always the same Bucky every time I see him.
