Last Tuesday, February 19th, we here at Keepin’ It Country had the pleasure of welcoming Mr. Bobby Bones to Nashville! The press conference took place at the Ford Theater in the Country Music Hall of Fame, where Bobby and his radio crew answered questions and took photos with some of Bobby’s favorite country stars, who were invited to help welcome him to his new city.
To start off the conference, Brad Paisley (although he couldn’t be there in attendance) shared a special video message announcing that he would be Bobby’s first guest on Monday, February 25th. The Big 98′s AntMan and Amy Paige then hosted a question & answer session with Bobby, opening up questions to anyone in attendance. Some of the country stars in attendance at the conference were Brett Eldridge, Charlie Worsham, Chris Janson, Craig Campbell, Dustin Lynch, Eric Paslay, The Farm, Gloriana, Greg Bates, Jake Owen, Jana Kramer, Joe Nichols, Joel Crouse, Josh Thompson, Jon Pardi, Kristin Kelly, and Parmalee.
“Thank you guys all for coming, it really means a lot to me and I’m gonna play your records a whole lot more since you’re here” Bobby joked, to all the artists who took their time to attend.
Bobby informed us that he grew up on country and he already feels at home in the transition from hosting on Top 40 radio to Country. ”To entertain and be with country music, it just feels so natural, and I feel like there is a big wide open avenue for a show like ours that makes people laugh, that relates and identifies with the new generation of country. I think that’s our goal and that’s what we’re set here to do.”
The Bobby Bones Show first started in Austin, TX in 2003. It debuted in Nashville on February 18th, 2013 and is now syndicated on Country radio stations nationwide. You can tune in Monday through Friday from 5 to 10am central time.
We’re glad to have you here in Nashville, Bobby! You can check out our photos from the event below!
