Bucky Covington Is Heading Home


For the first time ever, Bucky Covington is heading to his hometown of Rockingham, NC to perform for the fans that have always supported him. “When I was on American Idol the whole town pulled together – all of the business, churches – everyone. They all went above and beyond to help out and show me their support,” remembers Bucky. “Now it's my time to give back.”

The event is a great opportunity to give back to his roots. Not only will he perform the concert for free, he’s also taking part in the local BackPack Pals outreach program, which provides nutritional weekend meals and snacks to children whose primary source of food is the local school cafeteria. Concertgoers are encouraged to bring a canned good or other non-perishable food item to help support the community's BackPack Pals program and Our Daily Bread Christian Food Ministry.

“One of the best places to play is at home,” says Bucky. “We've had the incredible privilege of playing shows in Europe, Alaska and all across the States, but there's nothing like going home and performing. Every time you look out at the crowd, you see people you know. And to be able to help out BackPack Pals, which is such a great organization and worthy cause, tops off this homecoming.”

The event will take place at the town’s Harrington Square on September 26, 2009 at 7:00pm.
