Bucky Covington Lives Out His Rockstar Fantasy

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Some aspiring singers fantasize about wrecking hotel rooms and smashing guitars, but former American Idol finalist Bucky Covington has other things on his rock star agenda.

Covington – who releases his self-titled debut album April 17 – says his one rock star dream has always been to get a tattoo.

Says Covington: “The only thing I ever wanted to do when I got signed was to get a tattoo. That was my rock star fantasy and that’s what I did.”

Covington was influenced by fellow Idol rocker Chris Daughtry to get the ink, and says Daughtry even drew the design for his tattoo.

He says, “I wanted to get something meaningful so Daughtry drew up a music note with a cowboy spur in it to represent my country roots and that was that.”

Although his tattoo fantasy seemed glamorous at first, Covington admits it “hurt like hell” but made him “feel like a rockstar.”
