BOBBY BONES VISITS ST. JUDE WITH SPECIAL GUEST CAYLEE HAMMACK
Nashville, TN – October 30, 2019 – Radio and TV personality Bobby Bones visited St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital yesterday (10/29), returning to the hospital and reuniting with several familiar patients for a festive Halloween week trip. As “empathy is the real fuel to Bones’s work” (American Profile), he was joined by The Bobby Bones Show producer and The Raging Idiots bandmate Eddie Garcia, co-host Amy Brown, as well as special guest Capitol Records Nashville’s Caylee Hammack. Decked out in Halloween costumes, the two acts traded off performing for St. Jude patients and their families including songs like The Raging Idiots’ “When I Grow Up,” from their No.1 children’s album The Raging Kidiots: Kiddy Up!, as well as covers of 2019 viral hits “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X and “Baby Shark.”
With over $11 Million already raised for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital on behalf of Bones and the radio show, iHeartRadio’s Bobby Bones Show is set to host its annual Radiothon December 5-6, continuing its long-standing support for the hospital. More information and artist announcements will be made in the coming weeks.
