Not even the forces of nature can stop an American Idol star; at least they couldnâ€™t stop Bucky Covington and the Nashville Stars on Friday in South Carolina.
Melissa Campbell of Anderson said she decided to brave the elements simply because of boredom.
â€œWe really had nothing else to do tonight,â€ Mrs. Campbell said. â€œIâ€™m just upset that they made us wait so long to finally get in.â€
Elizabeth and Herb Elhers of Anderson said they also had the opportunity to see Covington on American Idol.
â€œI really thought Bucky was a pretty good singer,â€ Mrs. Ehlers said. â€œHe got really far in the competition, but I thought he was good enough to make it to the final pair.â€
Mr. and Mrs. Ehlers said before the concert Friday that they planned on braving the storm as long as the lightning remained at a distance.
â€œI really hope after this show Bucky moves on to something bigger and better,â€ Mrs. Ehlers said. â€œHe deserves it.â€
