BOBBY BONES VISITS MUSICARES IN NASHVILLE

BOBBY BONES VISITS MUSICARES IN NASHVILLE TO CELEBRATE DONATION RAISED BY #PIMPINJOY MOVEMENT 
Nashville,
TN – Oct. 19, 2016 – Bobby Bones, host of iHeartMedia’s The Bobby Bones
Show, visited MusiCares® at the Nashville Chapter of The Recording
Academy® last week to deliver a check to the organization for $32,000. 
In partnership with The Bobby Bones Show and TheShopForward.com, Bones
helped raise the donation by dedicating all proceeds from the sale of
#PIMPINJOY apparel in September to the MusiCares Foundation®, which
provides a safety net of critical assistance for music people in times
of need.

#PIMPINJOY is a movement created by The Bobby Bones Show to celebrate
people who may be going through a rough time, but choose to spread joy
in their daily lives. It was first launched to honor Bones’ co-host Amy
and her mother Judy, who had been battling, and unfortunately lost, her
battle with cancer, but it never diminished her spirit.  Throughout
their struggle, both women made a conscious effort to not let hardship
or difficulty cause them to lose hope or positivity in their lives –
instead, they chose to be happy, pass on joy, and influence others to do
the same. The movement inspired a line of apparel with proceeds
benefiting various charities, as well as an annual “Joy Week”
celebration marked by superstar appearances on the show.

With an affinity for wanting to help others, Bobby Bones recently
released THE RAGING KIDIOTS: KIDDY UP! on Black River Entertainment, a
project with the aim of informing, educating and entertaining the
younger set. The album debuted this month 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.”

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. For more
