PORTALES—"American Idol" participant and country singer Bucky Covington will perform at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, April 8 in Greyhound Arena at Eastern New Mexico University in Portales. Tickets are $10 for the general public, and free to ENMU students.
Covington is from North Carolina and began playing music with his buddies at a young age. After participating on American Idol, he had calls from the music business pouring in. Covington stated, "It was my first time on a commercial airliner. I had always wanted to get out and see the world, and Los Angeles was one of the places I wanted to go. But I didn't want to go as a body shop mechanic; I wanted to go as a singer. And who would have thought that my first time going, that I would go as a singer."
The concert is sponsored by the ENMU Associated Students Activities Board. For more information, call Tracy Henderson at 575-562-2631, or e-mail email@example.com.
