About Bobby Bones
Bobby Bones, the host of iHeartMedia's The Bobby Bones Show, who was heralded by New York Times as "the biggest thing in country radio," has proven to be one of the genre's most influential tastemakers, breaking some of country music's freshest talent on his nationally syndicated radio show. He recently released THE RAGING KIDIOTS: KIDDY UP! on Black River Entertainment, which debuted as the top downloaded children's album, with Sounds Like Nashville declaring that the release, co-written by Bobby Bones, showcases his ability to "fill lyrics with important lessons and a catchy tune." Bobby Bones' memoir, BARES BONES: I'M NOT LONELY IF YOU'RE READING THIS BOOK (Dey Street Books), released earlier this year, spent four weeks on New York Times Bestsellers List following an overwhelming debut that saw the memoir claim the No. One spot on multiple lists including USA Today and Wall Street Journal.
