Bucky Covington has signed a new record deal with Entertainment One Music Group and has plans to release new music as early as winter of this year. While eOne represents artists from a range of genres, Bucky joins the label as its premier country talent.
“After getting to know everyone at eOne, they are a perfect fit for me,” Bucky said. “Being a part of eOne is such a great opportunity, and I truly believe it will be a winning combination. I love these guys! I am very excited and can’t wait to get the party started and share my new music with my fans.”
“From the first time I met Bucky a couple of years ago I’ve been very impressed with not only his great music but also his engaging personality and love of performing for country music fans,” Van Fletcher, Entertainment One Nashville Vice President, said. “We are really enjoying working with Bucky Covington and his management team on his sophomore release in 2012 for Entertainment One Nashville.“
Bucky first appeared on the country music scene after finishing eighth in the fifth season of American Idol. He is in the studio writing and recording new music. Fans can expect to hear new music in his live shows with the first single expected to hit radio late this year. The album will release in 2012.
