Nashville, TN…(July 30, 2012)… Bucky Covington recently attended the 51st
Annual International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) Convention
held in Philadelphia, PA, where IAFF President Harold Schaitberger
surprised Covington before his full band performance with a personalized
Fire Fighter helmet to thank him for his passionate work with the
organization’s Charitable Foundation. Over the last year Bucky has been
working closely with Help The Good Guys and the IAFF Charitable
Foundation to provide financial relief to injured fire fighters and
their families, hosting benefit events, visiting burn centers and burn
camps and making donations from his music and merchandise sales.

Throughout the three-day convention, Bucky shared with the 3000+
attending IAFF members his efforts with Help The Good Guys and their
goals to help Fire Fighters in the U.S. and Canada. Covington will be
releasing his sophomore album Good Guys on September 11th with a portion of the proceeds from the first week sales benefitting the IAFF Charitable Foundation.

Next up for Bucky is a Legends Car Race on August 11th at the
Fairgrounds Speedway in Nashville, TN where he will drive a custom made
Legends Racecar to benefit Help The Good Guys and the Nashville Local
140 Fire Fighter’s Relief Fund. Following the race he’ll perform a
concert from the fairgrounds to round out the evening’s entertainment,
all to benefit our country’s brave fire fighters.
