Bucky Covington is the debut studio album of American country music artist Bucky Covington. It was released by Lyric Street Records, the country division of Hollywood Records, on April 17, 2007. The album produced three singles - "A Different World," "It's Good to Be Us," and "I'll Walk" - all of which were Top 20 hits on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. The song "Empty Handed" was also featured in the video game NASCAR 08.
Bucky Covington’s sophomore album arrived over five years following his eponymous 2007 debut. In that time some of his fans graduated both high school and college. But anyone familiar with Covington from the fifth season of American Idol might remember a guy who was having too much fun singing country music to worry about career strategies. This sunny and carefree attitude abounds throughout Good Guys starting with the opening I Wanna Be That Feeling - a winsome and uplifting country-pop hit with gratuitous pedal steel and Covington’s warm tenor breaking up in all the right spots.
The talent has shone through on three hit singles that have helped push his debut album toward gold status; his undeniable likeability and his ability to wear his stardom as comfortably as his jeans has done the rest. Both come together on stage, where the long-haired North Carolinian with the rocker s charisma and the country boy charm thrills old and new fans alike as he criss-crosses the country. Through his work with Help The Good Guys, Bucky will also donate proceeds from the first week sales of his new record to the International Association of Fire Fighters Charitable Fund, benefitting our brave neighborhood heroes who keep our communities safe each and every day.

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.
