Bucky Covington has joined forces with charitable organization Help The Good Guys to honor and support our country’s injured fire fighters, police officers and their families. The former American Idol finalist is partnering with the organization, which works to raise awareness and funds for the more than 130,000 fire fighters and law enforcement officers who experience a financial crisis due to work-related injuries each year.
“’Help The Good Guys’ perform an amazing service for our police officers and fire fighters across the country and I’m honored to join them in their efforts,” shares Bucky. “It’s rewarding for me to recognize these hard-working men and women and help bring some financial relief to these families in their time of need.”
In addition to raising awareness for the cause, Bucky recently lent his talents to fundraising events in Birmingham, AL (see below pic) and Detroit, MI to support injured heroes in their local community. Coming up on April 21, Bucky will host a motorcycle ride and concert in Chattanooga, TN to benefit injured fire fighters and police officers in the city.
Bucky signed a record deal with Entertainment One Music Group/Nashville in 2011 and will be releasing a new album this year, his first new music in five years.
Dierks Bentley’s latest “Miles & Music For Kids” stop was one of his biggest yet, raising over $205,000 for the Monroe Caroll Jr. Children’s Hospital. The event included a celebrity motorcycle ride and a concert featuring Dierks and some of his friends yesterday in Nashville. CMT Radio Live host Cody Allan hosted the event at the Riverfront Park.
Special guests that performed in support of Dierks and his 6th annual “Miles & Music For Kids” included Kevin Fowler, Sarah Silva, Craig Campbell, Bucky Covington, Colt Ford, the Eli Young Band, Josh Thompson and Lady Antebellum member Charles Kelley tried his hand at solo work for a few songs.
American Idol Season 5 finalist, Bucky Covington has signed a record deal with Entertainment One Nashville. Bucky was previously signed to Disney’s Lyric Street Records which closed in 2010. With the closure, he continued working on music and going out there and playing for the fans.
This year, Craig Morgan’s Charity Motocross Ride, Concert and Sporting Clay Shoot raised more than the previous two years – more than $95,000 – and that makes for a very happy Morgan.
Morgan was quoted as saying this about the results of this year’s event:
“It’s amazing how much this event has grown over the last 5 years and I’m over-the-top grateful to everyone from our celebrity friends and the Dickson and Middle Tennessee communities for their support. We raised a record high amount this year for Billy’s Place and I’m thankful for the opportunity to do more for the children and families of Dickson. I already can’t wait to do it again next year!”
Proceeds from the weekend’s activities benefit Billy’s Place, which is supporting children’s causes in Middle Tennessee and working toward building a home for temporarily displaced children in Morgan’s hometown of Dickson, just outside Nashville.
