The debut CD from American Idol Season 5 finalist Bucky Covington is in stores today (April 17th). Early reviews from some of the nation's toughest critics have been overwhelmingly positive.

American Idol Season 5 finalist Bucky Covington's self-titled debut hits stores today, and the Lyric Street Records album is already garnering rave reviews.

Here's what a few of the nation's toughest critics are saying about Bucky Covington:

Dallas Morning News:
"Easily the best country album by an American Idol contestant."

Miami Herald:
"The most cohesive album to come out of the franchise yet."

Entertainment Weekly:
"The North Carolinian with the throaty drawl could sell everything-from the cheeky to the weepy. And he does." B+

Associated Press:
"Covington delivers. His gritty growl comes alive…[and] he sounds like the star he could evolve into…"

Produced by Dale Oliver and Sawyer Brown frontman Mark Miller, Bucky Covington is an eleven-song showcase of Covington's gritty, bluesy voice. From the rocking "Empty Handed," to the heartbreaking "I'll Walk," to the celebratory "American Friday Night," the album is the music Covington himself wanted to make--now that he's in his element and singing songs he finds relatable.

Watch for Bucky Covington later this week on American Idol, American Idol Tonight, Jimmy Kimmel Live, American Idol Extra and Fox & Friends.
