Nashville, TN – December 7, 2020 – iHeartRadio’s The Bobby Bones Show raised $2.25 million during its annual two-day Radiothon this past December 3rd and 4th. Featuring uplifting and timely performances from a star-studded lineup including Chris Stapleton, Dierks Bentley, Luke Combs, Miranda Lambert, Sam Hunt and many more, Bones’ CMA and ACM Award-winning national radio show and its loyal listeners have now helped garner over $16.25 million for the special cause.
“I say it all the time, but none of this is possible without the passion of the #BTeam,” Bones said. “Supporting the kids and families at St. Jude is so important to us and I’m so grateful all of you show up year after year and make this event so incredible.”
