It looks like Season 5 Idol alum, Bucky Covington IS signing with eOne records as we speculated in this post about Idol pitch sheet listings. Bucky’s label is looking for new songs, but the question is, which label? Bucky, in a recent interview with the Huntington Herald-Dispatch, appears to confirm eOne:
I’ve just signed up with a new record label. We have a new single coming across your radios in the next two or three months. The album another five, six months after that, of course, once the song releases.
Tell me about the new record label. – Well we haven’t exactly put out a press release on it yet. It’s a great company. It’s a great company that’s moved into Nashville. I’m the first country artist they’ve signed. I’m absolutely thrilled. The guy that’s heading it up, Van, is also from North Carolina like myself. So far, I’m also working with a lot of people who were on Lyric Street. Of course, when Lyric Street Records shut down, everybody goes a little somewhere and a lot of the folks have gone over to this company. So I’m looking very much forward to working with some of these folks again.
