On Tuesday, November 18th, Bobby Bones and The Raging Idiots played a special charity concert to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Two-time Academy of Country Music “Top Male Vocalist” Jason Aldean crashed the show held at Marathon Music Works in Nashville, helping raise more than $60,000 for the hospital. In addition, Country music singer/songwriter/guitarist Lindsay Ell performed with The Raging Idiots, and St. Jude patient Caleb served as guest announcer for the evening.

During a recent interview on The Bobby Bones Show, Aldean agreed to play a charity show with the band if they could raise $50,000 for Susan G. Komen. The program used any and all means to reach their goal – from putting Lunchbox in a room with a snake, to offering shirtless pictures of the guys to generate donations from listeners.

In the last three weeks alone, The Bobby Bones Show has raised more than $210,000 for St. Jude. With the help of listeners and the Country music industry, the program made a donation last week of over $150,000 in honor of co-host Amy’s mother Judy, who recently passed away from cancer. In the past 18 months, The Raging Idiots have raised more than $750,000 for various charities.

AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN AWARDS finalists and winners, other than Breakthrough Artist of the Year, are determined based on statistics and radio airplay charts from Nov. 1, 2013-Oct. 31, 2014. The finalists for Album of the Year were based on album sales from SoundScan and the finalists for Artist of the Year were based on a combination of Mediabase airplay, digital data provided by Big Champagne and tour information from Pollstar. All other award categories were made up of those with the largest audience reach, according to Mediabase.

Kenny Chesney Takes a Stand Against ‘Bro-Country’ in Billboard Cover Story

Kenny-Chesney-Billboard-Cover

Kenny Chesney covers the newest issue of Billboard, and inside he takes a stand against the ever popular ‘bro-country.’

“Over the last several years, it seems like anytime anybody sings about a woman, she’s in cutoff jeans, drinking and on a tailgate — they objectify the hell out of them,” he says. “Twenty years ago, I might have written a song like that — I probably did. But I’m at a point where I want to say something different about women.”

Thank God! Thank you Kenny Chesney. Do you wanna know why he wants to say something different about women??? Cuz he’s not a 19 year old kid anymore… Kenny Chesney is a grown man who wants to sing about being a grown man. (Take notes Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean).

Instead, Chesney depicts a strong, independent woman in his single “Wild Child,” off his new album The Big Revival. It’s with this album that Kenny decided to become more than just the guy on the beach.

“I would listen to the songs I’d recorded, and they were good, but I felt like we were repeating ourselves.” It wasn’t until he found the first single, “American Kids,” and co-wrote “Wild Child” that, he says, “I felt the excitement I needed to feel when I decided to take a year off.” (Rocker Grace Potter, with whom Chesney recorded the hit duet “You and Tequila,” rejoined him on “Wild Child.”)
