Good Guys

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. Amiable guy he is, Bucky tries everything: he'll sing a sun-kissed love letter to "Mexicoma" and in doing so deliberately evoke the memory of Kenny Chesney, he'll sing a hardcore country duet with Shooter Jennings on "Drinking Side of Country," he'll cover Nickelback's "Gotta Be Somebody," a bit of slow-burning soul on "Hold a Woman," a little bit of rocking country on "Mama Must Be Prayin," and a cover of Lionel Richie's "Sail On" that, given the timing, can't help but seem like a reject from Lionel's hit 2012 Tuskegee album. Bucky acquits himself well on all of these, sounding like one of the good guys.
