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.
