Q I loved contestant Bucky Covington on last season's American Idol. What's he been doing since the show?
Anna G., Oak Ridge, Tenn.

The North Carolina native, 29, left his day job—working in his father's auto-body shop alongside his identical twin brother, Rocky—when Idol fame came calling. Though he didn't win the talent contest, he completed a sold-out tour of 39 cities with other finalists from the show and appeared on The Tonight Show, Fox and Friends, Regis and Kelly and Larry King Live. Covington's debut CD, a self-titled country-rock mix produced by Mark Miller of the country band Sawyer Brown, has just been released.
