Str8 Boys Need Love Too - Bucky Covington

Bucky Covington was a contestant on season 5 of American Idol, a handsome country singer from Rockingham, North Carolina. I loved his charm, that hair, and a roughness to his voice. That season, my three favorites finished 4th, 7th and 8th, leaving me far short of being able to pick a winner. That said, Bucky landed on his feet, scoring a contract and a fantastic eponymous first album. On release, it reached #1 on the Country charts, and the best debut on for a male artist since Billy Ray Cyrus scored with Achy Breaky Heart. Three songs from that album went on to be hits, A Different World, It's Good To Be Us, and I'll Walk. I'll admit I'll Walk was one of my least favorite songs offered, and one of my favorites, American Friday Night, never hit the airwaves.

However, coming in early 2010, Bucky will be releasing his next album, rumored to be named I'm Alright. He recently released a hint of what's to come. The song is Gotta Be Somebody, and I really like it. It is a southern-flavored cover of a Nickelback song.

I think he is just adorable, not bad for a str8 guy. You can find out more about Bucky at his official website here.


  1. You know what they say about a str8 guy, just give him a few beers and he will be willing and able. hehe

  2. I wasn't a fan when he was on Idol, but he does seem to have come into his own now. His voice is pretty good and he does have a stage presence.

  3. Allen, one can only hope...

    Bob, I do think he has grown, but I have to admit I loved him on AI, too.
