Lucky Bucky fans get a second chance

Bucky Covington must have liked something when he came to Poughkeepsie in late March.

The former "American Idol" finalist is coming back to the area on Aug. 22nd, when he and Keith Anderson perform at the Dutchess County Fair.

Back on March 28th, Bucky opened up for fellow country crooner Dierks Bentley. This time, he joins a weeklong lineup at the fair that includes fellow country singers like Blake Shelton, Jason Michael Carroll, Jake Owen and the group Little Big Home.

As I've mentioned in the past, I'm not a big country music fan, but I know Bucky from his "Idol" past.

The one group playing the fair that I am keenly aware of is the Beach Boys, who my parents often listened to when I was a kid.

Mike Love and the rest of the Boys were particular favorites of my mom, who I'm guessing will head to Rhinebeck to see the show.

Sadly for my GF, I don't think John Stamos will be joining them on stage for "Kokomo."
