Bucky Covington placed 8th in the 5th season of American Idol which earned him a spot in the American Idol tour. Subsequently, he was signed to a recording contract and released his first album in 2007. His second album Good Guys was released in 2012.
Scott Spahr, Director of the Boys and Girls Club in Morristown, shared with ShelbyvilleToday how they were able to connect with Bucky. “Bucky’s name just came to me, so I looked him up and called Buddy Lee Attractions who represents him.” Scott then shared with them that Matt Mason had just been out for a concert in Morristown. The representative from the agency mentioned that they had just signed Matt Mason to a contract that very day! He said it was meant to be and he would get Bucky for their event.
When the agency called back they said they had talked to Matt and he had shared all the great things that the Boys and Girls Club does for the kids of Morristown. They were able to negotiate a great deal for the concert.
In addition, the Indiana USO asked to take part. Covington has toured with the USO in the past and they wanted to post a banner thanking him for his participation. Since the concert is taking place so close to Patriot Day, the concert will be dedicated to honoring our heroes.
Local artists Bobby Wiggins and Carl Bentley will be joining Covington at the September 13th concert. The concert will take place in the Morristown park and the gates open at 3pm. Tickets can be purchased in advance at Ameriana Bank in Morristown or online at Brown Paper Tickets for $10. At the gate they will be $15. Scott has also said he would be happy to deliver the tickets to you, so give him a call at 317-512-5033 to work out the details if one of the other ticket options doesn’t work for you.
Be sure and bring along your chairs and blankets as it will be an outdoor event. Lets pack the park in support of the Boys and Girls Club!
