Re: “Live: Five things learned watching Bucky Covington

Grayson, I can't believe you couldn't find anything you liked about Bucky Covington's performance. Calling "I'll Walk" morose, is a little extreme, I think. Yes, it's reminiscent of the old style Country tear jerkers. Most think Bucky does a beautiful job with it. His covers - I'm not a big fan of "The Wall" but I absolutely LOVE the way he does "Suspicious Minds"! I think Elvis would say "It's All Right.." And, I will admit I was a little hesitant when I heard he was doing "Seven Spanish Angels" but I think his version is great, too! It's too bad that you feel the need to pan him, and his band members when you talk about their stage presence and activities. They are up there having fun, sharing with the audience and putting on a good show! I think that's part of the beauty of Bucky Covington; he's genuine, not all polished and coreographed. He's up there representing the average Jack or Jill. And, what in the world is wrong with him asking the NC audience "How you doing North Carolina?" Yes, he's from NC, but he's been touring all over the country for the past couple years, and I believe his home is in Nashville now. So, I think that audience interaction is as sincere (and welcome) in NC as anywhere. It's one thing if you just don't care for his music or style. It's quite another to deprecate and misrepresent almost everything about him.
