Nashville, TN – September 7, 2017 – iHeartMedia’s Bobby Bones has announced the launch of the Nashville Podcast Network, an eclectic collection of seven podcasts from a variety of Nashville-savvy hosts, including Country artists such as Kristian Bush and Jake Owen. The network will give listeners an inside look at the lifestyle and pop culture in Nashville and will be available for download across various podcast platforms including iHeartMedia, reaching iHeartRadio’s millions of listeners.
“My focus is content and to provide my audience with many options for it,” Bones said. “If you’re into fashion or music or even the stories of American heroes, this network is here to make sure you are always just one tap away from being entertained or informed.”
The network will also be home to Bones’ own BobbyCast, a “treasure trove of unusually candid anecdotes…” (Washington Post) for which Bones sits down with top artists and songwriters – Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Maren Morris and John Mayer to name a few – for in-depth personal interviews. With 75+ episodes and more than 2 million downloads, the overwhelming success of BobbyCast has paved the way for the Nashville Podcast Network.
