Bobby Bones & The Raging Idiots Spend The Day At St. Jude
October 12, 2016
Bobby Bones And The Raging Idiots’, the comedy group comprised of Bobby Bones and Producer Eddie from iHeartMedia’s The Bobby Bones Show, visited St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® yesterday in Memphis, TN, as part of a special day that saw the group spend quality time participating in activities and performing for the excited patients. The duo who are known for their many charitable initiatives, were joined by friends and fellow artists Lindsay Ell and Nikita Karmen, as they performed songs taken from their recently released full-length children’s album, THE RAGING KIDIOTS: KIDDY UP! on Black River Entertainment. The album debuted this week as the top downloaded children’s album, as Sounds Like Nashville declared that the 12-track disc, co-written by Bobby Bones, showcases his ability to “fill lyrics with important lessons and a catchy tune that is guaranteed to get stuck in your head and remember what you learned, no matter how old you are.”
Bones was also presented with a St. Jude gold record during the visit, to recognize his contribution in helping raise $2.2 million dollars for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®.
Bobby Bones, 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. The host of iHeartMedia’s The Bobby Bones Show, the show reaches millions of listeners on nearly 100 stations. Bobby Bones’ BARES BONES: I’M NOT LONELY IF YOU’RE READING THIS BOOK (Dey Street Books) 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. The release of his memoir came hot on the heels of the Black River artists’ No. One debut EP THE RAGING IDIOTS PRESENTS – THE RAGING KIDIOTS, as well as their No. One comedy album THE CRITICS GIVE IT 5 STARS. Bobby Bones’ one-man comedy show, Bobby Bones: Funny And Alone, also continues to sell out venues with the next stop in St. Louis, MO (10/15) for two shows on the same night, with the first one having already sold-out.
