Country crooner Bucky Covington may not have been the winner on the fifth season of “American Idol,” but he’s number one in the hearts of residents living in New Brockton, Alabama. The concert series was established by Ronnie Gilley and hosted by Ronnie Gilley Properties and Mayberry Place (a residential development in partnership with Ronnie Gilley Properties and country music recording artist Tracy Lawrence).
Following a spirited match between the New Brockton High School and Houston Academy football teams, over 5,000 fans gathered in the high school’s stadium to sing along with the Lyric Street recording artist as he belted out his latest single to climb the charts, “It’s Good To Be Us.” Those not fortunate enough to obtain one of the coveted concert tickets can see the rising star at Sommet Center in Nashville, Tennessee on November 7, 2007 as a presenter during the 41st annual CMA Awards, which will be broadcast live on ABC.
