Album Review

From the start, a large part of Bucky Covington's appeal was that he was indeed one of the good guys, the rare American Idol contestant who seemed to be part of the show for the sheer joy of it. It was enough for him to get far and enough for him to have a respectable 2007 debut, but nice guys are hardly immune to the vicious arrows of the music industry. As he was hard at work on a second album called I'm Alright in 2010, his label Lyric Street went under and he was then a free agent, eventually signing with Entertainment One in 2011, who released Good Guys in the fall of 2012, nearly five years after his eponymous debut. It's hard to tell how much of Good Guys is cobbled together through the remnants of I'm Alright and newer recordings.

Bucky acquits himself well on all of these, sounding like one of the good guys.

Bucky was bitten by the music bug after seeing blues guitarist Jeff Healey in the movie Road House, saying "I remember...picturing myself on-stage with a pair of sunglasses on, playing guitar and singing, and thinking, that would be cool."
