"A Different World" is the first single by American country musician, Bucky Covington, from his debut album "Bucky". He performed it at Great American Country in December 2006, and the song was released for country radio on 16 January 2007. The song is produced by Mark Miller, and will be released by Lyric Street Records, a country label of Disney's Buena Vista Music Group.
The song is a reminiscence of Covington's formative years; its lyrics illustrate examples of how much the world has changed since he was a kid. Covington states during the chorus that it was "not just a different time / It was a different world". Though Covington was born in 1977, his song trades in a pleasant, yet completely manufactured faux-nostalgia as evidenced by his musical comments on the lack of bottled water, or seatbelts in cars, or video games or remote controls, although all these things were commonplace by the time of Covington's early childhood.
