In The Studio

Lenslinger Lit
I was gonna hold off telling you why I dashed to Nashville, but a certain giggling hick's rabid fansite figured it out: I went to see Bucky. Covington, that is - former American Idol Contestant, fellow Carolina Boy and official Friend of the Show. I found him in a recording booth outside Music City, slathering swamp grease vocals all over his post-Idol polish. He and his hosts - the fellas from Sawyer Brown - were perfect video specimens, ignoring me completely as my lens and I skulked about their swanky digs. While they twiddled knobs and laid down tracks, I moved around like an assassin and tried not to tap my foot. It was tough, though - as the song being built around me was both highly approachable and surprisingly potent. (Think young Charlie Daniels channeling Axl Rose...if you can.) My bosses ask that I not say much more before our series piece airs and since on their stipend I rely, I'll happily comply. Coming Thursday: Quotes, photos, video links and enough southern fried charm to choke a Possum Queen. For now though, Bucky Fans - scrawl down these two words: Empty-Handed.

Bucky Covington is an amazing talent. He totally captivated me on AI this season and in concert. I can't wait for his first cd and the many more to come. I am now and always be a supporter of his in the long career that I am

AHH.. You are a man with tantalizing words. Thursday can't come fast enough for me. There's nothing like a dose of Bucky Covington with that sweet southern voice and charming smile.

Oh yea, man oh man, I can't wait for more pictures of Bucky.

Stew, does your wife know how many strange women are writing to you using words like "tantalizing" and "pleasure." Or how about "can't come fast enough for me."

Man I wish I had you readers.
