Bucky Covington Releases Video for “I Wanna Be That Feeling”! Bucky Covington has released the video for his most recent single, “I Wanna Be That Feeling“! This single might be my favorite of Bucky’s musical releases so far. It mixes his country and his rock sides in a really balanced way. You get that good country music feeling with just a little bit of a rock edge to it, mostly coming from Covington’s delightfully gravelly voice. The video, directed by Kristin Barlowe perfectly captures the themes of the lyrics, and I think this is definitely going to be one of my go to I-just-need-a-three-minute-video-break songs of the summer! Check it out below, and let me know what you think! Watch “I Wanna Be That Feeling”! [youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tj6P7nVOUfM]
