Luke Bryan, Lady Antebellum, Cole Swindell, Jon Pardi and more lined up
iHeartMedia’s Bobby Bones has announced the Bobby Bones & The Raging Idiots’ 4th Annual Million Dollar Show, benefitting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, set for January 14th at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. This year’s show will feature performances by Bobby Bones & The Raging Idiots as well as some of country music’s hottest performers including Luke Bryan, Lady Antebellum, Cole Swindell, Jon Pardi, Brad Arnold of 3 Doors Down, Maggie Rose, Bailey Bryan, Adam Hambrick and Rachel Wammack. The show is also infamous for delighting the audience with surprise special guests. Tickets for this year’s Million Dollar Show, sponsored by The General Insurance, are available for purchase this Friday, December 7th at 10 am CT online.
Raising more than eight million dollars for St. Jude to date, the fun-filled event is a fast sell-out every year, while last year’s show had the audience “chanting ‘one more song’” (Tennessean).
Bobby Bones, Vice President, Creative Director of iHeartCountry, has a “fiercely devoted following” (Washington Post) tuning in to his nationally syndicated radio show, The Bobby Bones Show, which broadcasts to almost 140 stations and is the No. 1 country morning show with millions of weekly listeners. The show recently garnered its third ACM Award for National On-Air Personality of the Year, a 2017 Country Music Association award for National Broadcast Personality of the Year and earned Bones the title of youngest ever inductee into the prestigious National Radio Hall of Fame.
The “media multitasker” (Billboard) also launched his own podcast, BobbyCast, which features candid long-form interviews with top artists and industry figures and has been downloaded more than six million times. The podcast’s overwhelming success has paved the way for Bones to launch the Nashville Podcast Network, an eclectic collection of podcasts from a variety of Nashville-savvy hosts, giving listeners an inside look at the lifestyle and pop culture in Nashville.
Bones recently won Season 27 of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars and is set to lend his expertise to the latest season of ABC’s American Idol as the official in-house mentor. Bones is also a two-time New York Times No. 1 bestselling author, touring stand-up comedian, philanthropist and chart-topping comedy artist – a true “jack of all trades” (ESPN).
