With a stacked album release week ahead, the Black River recording artists will start with a SOLD-OUT album release concert tonight in Nashville, TN. From there, they will make the trek to five states for CD signing events leading up to their debut at the Grand Ole Opry on Friday, March 25.

Bobby Bones, who recently garnered his second ACM award for “National On-Air Personality of the Year,” co-wrote all the tracks with some of Nashville’s top songwriters including Lee Thomas Miller and Kristian Bush as well as co-produced the album with Nick Autry. The result is a collection that defies genres including the ode to late bloomers “She’s a 10, I’m A 2” with Charles Kelley and “relationship-gone-wrong” (PEOPLE) love song “We Can’t Stand Each Other” with Carrie Underwood. Continuing in the charitable spirit that made The Raging Idiots a household name and raised over two million dollars for charities across America, a portion of the proceeds from “We Can’t Stand Each Other” with Carrie Underwood are being donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Bobby Bones, best known as “country’s biggest radio star,” (CBS News) 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 reaches 4.8 million weekly listeners on nearly 100 stations.
