Buckstein Announces New EP 'Country Side'


Country music star Buckstein have announced that he will be releasing a brand new EP entitled "Country Side" on June 2nd. We were sent the following details:

The 5-song recording-which includes four original tracks and one cover-was produced by Andy Rok (one of the founding members of The Flobots) and engineered at The Blasting Room in Ft. Collins, Colorado. With a "no-fear-of-the-edge" mentality that hooks the non-country-lovin' folk, coupled with traditional vibes that will bring to mind a modern-day John Wayne, Buckstein fights to create something electric that grabs you and makes you look up. He's a 6'4" bass-baritone powerhouse who once hit 200 million television sets worldwide as a contestant on "American Idol."

"There's a lot of heart in these five tunes," Buckstein says. "Making them has been a very valuable experience. It has shown me not only where I am but where I want to go from here." Buckstein's goal is to bring soul to everything he does. "What people seem to respond most to in my live performances is my passion, so I worked hard to bring that to the record." His sound commonly gets compared a lot to the great bass-baritones of his time: Trace Adkins, Toby Keith, Josh Turner, and Chris Young.

From the title track, which documents Buckstein's own experiences growing up, to the wink-wink, nudge-nudge humor of "10 at 2:00," he travels down familiar country music roads, but with his own unique stamp and his own personal twist on the journey. "I'll Make a Country Girl Outta You Yet" was born of a concept that Buckstein has become aware of since he started in the music business and really ties into the theme of the EP-that everyone has a country side. One track on the EP is a bold re-imagining of a song originally recorded by pop duo MKTO called "Bad Girls." Buckstein felt the original had very universal lyrics and he wanted to explore them in a country framework. "For me, a good song is a good song," he explains. "This song had a great groove. I respond well to groove. So I worked to bring new life to it."
