Florida georgia line bobby bones

Florida Georgia Line apparently has some animosity towards DJ Bobby Bones, which they made quite clear during an interview in Nashville this week.

On June 7, Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley visited SiriusXM Music City Theatre for a performance and interview with DJ Storme Warren.

Warren asked them about how they always find themselves in the crosshairs of controversy, referring to the negative comments surrounding their new single, H.O.L.Y.. But Hubbard’s response took the conversation in another direction.

“We didn’t put a billboard on the Interstate,” said Hubbard. The comment was a direct slam at Bones, who back in 2014 paid $13,000 to launch a massive negative PR campaign against himself that included four highway billboards that read “Go Away Bobby Bones.”

Bones admitted to being behind the campaigns as a way to earn sympathy and increase ratings. He’s also made a few “all-in-good-fun” jabs at FGL recently that apparently haven’t been taken so well.

Later that same day, Bones took to twitter to respond to Hubbard’s comment saying, “Guys. I really don’t care what Florida Georgia Line says about me in an interview. I don’t take stuff personally. I respect their music. Keepin it +”

Whether the sentiment was genuine or not, it appears he’s pushed a couple wrong buttons on behalf of FGL. It wouldn’t be the first artist Bones has created bad blood with. Chris Young and Kacey Musgraves are among other artists who have beef with Bones.

It seems he doesn’t actually have to spend thousands of dollars to turn people against him.

To see the full performance including Hubbard’s jab, click the video below.

He’s been called ‘the most powerful man in country music.’ Bobby Bones, a beloved radio personality, will compete for the ‘DWTS’ crown, so get all the details about this dancing DJ.

Bobby Bones, 36, knows a thing or two about music. The host of iHeart’s marque morning program, The Bobby Bones Show, is syndicated in nearly 100 stations coast to coast, and he also hosts Country Top 30 with Bobby Bones. So, expect a lot of boot-scootin’ with his cha-chas when he and Sharna Burgess, 33, team up for season 27 of Dancing With The Stars. Bobby – along with celebrities like Nikki Glaser, 34, Tinashe, 25, and more – will compete for the mirror ball trophy, so get all the details about him before the Sept. 24 premiere.

1. Bobby Bones isn’t his real name. Shocker, right? He was born Bobby Estell in Hot Springs, Arkansas, and grew up in poverty, as his parents were only teenagers when they had him. As a boy, he earned the moniker that would become known across the country. “Well, there’s a story when I was a young, eighth-grader and I was wrestling, and my shorts…tore,” he told Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb in 2016, while promoting his book, Bare Bones: I’m Not Lonely If You’re Reading This Book. “The nickname ‘T-Bone’ happened…so, with that…” It seemed that after “T-Bone,” it was just natural to start calling him Bobby Bones.

2. He won over Nashville by trolling himself. In 2013, iHeartMedia made Bones, a popular Top 40 DJ in Austin, the host of Nashville’s flagship radio program, according to the Washington Post. He replaced a beloved DJ – Gerry House – but as a man who’s more Ryan Seacrest than Grand Ole Opry, he rubbed the “old guard” the wrong way. A year into his run, he was struggling to find an audience. So, he spent $13,000 of his own money on billboards across town that read, “Go Away Bobby Bones.” People responded with sympathy, shocked that someone could be so cruel. It helped Bobby’s listenership, as it grew from 2 to 3 million listeners.

3. He’s also a rock star. Bobby fronts a comedy band called The Raging Idiots. “I’m a decent writer, barely a decent guitar player and a terrible singer,” he said, per Forbes. He often recruits famous friends — Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley, Toby Keith, to name a few — to join him on stage.

4. He’s heavily involved in charitable works. The Raging Idiots were something fun for Bobby and one of his on-air sidekicks, Eddie Garcia, to do, and they turned their show into a charity gig…which led to another charity gig. “Before we knew it, we got close to a million raised for charity, just touring around playing in restaurants,” he said. Since growing up in extreme poverty as a boy, Bobby has worked hard to raise millions for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, including raising $1.3 million in a single day as part of the St. Jude Radiothon.

5. He attempted to prank Donald Trump for $250k. “I’m really not a dick, but sometimes you get that reputation,” he told Rolling Stone, and his pranks have earned him that reputation. iHeartMedia was fined $1 million over a 2014 incident in which The Bobby Bones Show broadcasted fake emergency alerts during its program. Other pranks have landed him and his entourage in jail or on misdemeanor charges. One prank may have cost Donald Trump, 72, a quarter of a million dollars.

In 2015, Bobby saw that then-candidate Trump failed to trademark “Make America Great Again” for t-shirts and hats. So, Bones swooped in and filed it. He told Donald that he could have the trademark if he made a $250,000 donate to St. Jude. Donald eventually cut a check, but forbade Bobby from disclosing the amount. So, had Bobby demanded more money or held onto the trademark, we wouldn’t have those red MAGA hats.

Country music radio personality Bobby Bones is quite the guy.

Apart from his iHeart morning program, The Bobby Bones Show, Bobby has made a name for himself on hit shows such as Dancing With the Stars and American Idol. If you aren’t a huge country music person and/or are just trying to learn a little bit more about the guy, here’s what you need to know:

For starters, his real name isn’t Bobby Bones.

Bobby Bones was born Bobby Estell. He grew up poor, in a rural Arkansas trailer park. Bobby was raised by his mother, who struggled with alcoholism, and grandmother, according to Forbes. He was also bullied a lot in school, yet he worked hard and eventually scored a gig as a Top 40s DJ in Austin, Texas. In 2013, Bobby got his big break: He was tapped to move to Nashville, Tennessee, to host a syndicated morning show.

He has security detail with him at all times.

Bobby caused quite a stir when iHeartMedia named him Nashville’s head radio person for country music, the Washington Post reports. As the outlet notes, Bobby was set to replace DJ Gerry House, who was beloved by Music City at the time. To add fuel to the fire, Bobby had no background in country music and quickly earned a reputation for being outspoken. He’s also gotten iHeart fined for $1 million after playing an emergency alert over the air.

Two years ago, he revealed to Rolling Stone that he had received “15 death threats” and has to have “security where ever he goes.”

He’s also PO’d the guests. In 2014, Bobby and singer Kacey Musgraves got into it after Kacey claimed the host edited her interview to make her sound “uninterested and rude.” Bobby ended up apologizing for the matter. He has reportedly also had minor feuds with Aaron Watson and Florida Georgia Line.

Bobby admits he’s a “terrible” singer.

But that doesn’t stop him from being the frontman for a comedy band called The Raging Idiots. On weekends (and occasionally during the week), Bobby books famous country faces — Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean, for example — to rock out with him. What started as a fun side hustle ended up as a way to raise money for charity. As Forbes pointed out, The Raging Idiots has raised millions for various organizations, including $2.2 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

People think he looks exactly like Ryan Seacrest.

When the country music radio host appeared on American Idol in April 2018, fans could not get over his resemblance to Ryan Seacrest:

Had never heard of Bobby Bones…..he’s like a Ryan Seacrest mini-me #AmericanIdol

— K.R. (@nubohemian25) April 9, 2018

After seeing a pic of them side-by-side, it’s easy to see why:

In 2019, Bobby is set to return to Idol as an in-house mentor for season 2 of the series.

He got injured while competing on Dancing With the Stars.

Yikes! Bobby revealed to People that he was elbowed in the mouth by his pro partner, Sharna Burgess, two times. Both accidents were his fault, he said.

“I had to fill out a lot of paperwork, because I got hit really hard,” he said about one incident that led to him filing a dental claim. “There was blood and a tooth … She was doing her spin thing, and she was doing what she was supposed to do, and my face was not doing what it was supposed to do.”

Bobby Bones Won Dancing With the Stars — Here’s Why He Shouldn’t Have

Kelsey McNeal/Getty Images

If you’re a fan of the show, you’ve likely been bombarded with an array of social media messages announcing that Nashville DJ Bobby Bones won season 27 of Dancing with the Stars. Some tweets may have been celebratory, but I imagine more than a few claimed the dance competition has jumped the shark. On my own Twitter feed, I couldn’t even begin to count how many people have threatened to never tune in to the show again, thanks to an outcome that they found unfathomable.

Question for the haters, though: Were the results actually unfathomable, in the truest definition of the word? It seems to me that Bones pretty much proved that he was a wacky force to be reckoned with, thanks to the huge legion of fans making sure he under no circumstances landed in the red light of doom. For eight weeks, Bones never received a score above an eight from the judges, yet he was not once in danger of elimination. In a day and age where streaming music feels like the norm, we forget that there are millions of people who utilize radio air waves and podcast downloads — and Bones has a built-in fanbase.

Plus, we’ve been down this road before. Every season, one rhythmless dancer makes it to the finals over a talented contestant who is able to master the cha-cha-cha. It’s a popularity vote and audiences outrage over “unfair eliminations” will only fall on deaf ears. Been there. Done that.

RELATED: How DWTS’ Bobby Bones Made Everyone Cry

However, even I can admit that the episodes leading up to this season’s finale felt particularly charged. Rather than just complaining, the idea of a new “voting algorithm” has been introduced by extreme fans in hushed circles. The system is clearly broken if a guy like Juan Pablo di Pace secures five perfect scores and then gets kicked off before the semi-finals. Measures need to be taken to make sure that never happens again.

I personally think ABC is particularly paying attention to the stars who cause the most chatter. Take the freestyle dances, for example. Finalist Alexis Ren floated around a huge fake mountain. Evanna Lynch twisted her way through a colorful, yet bizarre dance and Milo Manheim blew everyone out of the water, while dancing in the water.

But Bones used theatrics, flamboyance, and a comedy schtick at the end of his routine that included DeMarcus Ware lifting him into the air (brilliant) and Tom Bergeron flossing with actual floss. It was a well-planned extravaganza that played to Bones’ strengths and proved that the cast roster loves him enough to participate in his shenanigans.

Another example is Grocery Store Joe. Not only was he trotted out mid-finale to dance with fellow Bachelor pals, but it was announced that he will be joining the DWTS tour. You may be asking yourself, “How the f*ck could this even be considered among the decision makers at ABC?” Well, the dude managed to make it as far as di Pace. You do the math.

Surely ABC is savvy enough to see that they are teetering on very thin ice when it comes to tried and true DWTS fans. Do they just ignore them and keep everything exactly how it is now? And if they were going to make a change, what would that be?

I’m glad you asked. I think it’s time to implement a “free pass” that the judges are able to use that allows a talented dancer to advance even if they have been kicked off unexpectedly. I’ll even go as far to say that I think each judge needs a free pass. Heck, let’s give the contestants a vote while we’re at it!

So what is ABC supposed to do? Do they acknowledge the angry fans with some sort of solution? Or do they sit back and count their money, happy that the country seems to be completely engrossed in the inner workings of their dancing competition? Is the negative publicity worth it? Or has it gone too far this year? Something has to give. Otherwise we’re going to be stuck watching a bunch of reality show guys dressed in denim overalls awkwardly hip thrusting to “I’m Too Sexy.” No one needs to see that again.

Until next season.

Minneapolis, Nashville, Memphis, and Abilene

Nashville, TN — “Reigning indie underdog” (Rolling Stone) Aaron Watson releases his brand new album, Red Bandana today, June 21. The “epic” 20-song collection, all written solely by Watson who co-produced the project with Jordan Lehning, marks his 20th year in music and is now available on all platforms. Well-known as a “pioneering independent” (Cowboys & Indians), Watson releases Red Bandana riding a wave of success on the heels of the widely recognized commercial hit Vaquero with his most defining project yet via his own BIG Label Records (distributed by ADA Worldwide). The album is already racking up early stellar reviews with Sounds Like Nashville declaring his “ambition and drive is likely bigger and better sounding than it’s ever been.” Saving Country Music proclaims, “Red Bandana is ambitious in its goals, inspiring in its scope, and nearly flawless in its execution.

On June 25, fans can catch him at BMI’s Rooftop On The Row and later on the Grand Ole Opry performing and signing copies of Red Bandana. He will be a guest of Bill Cody’s on WSM’s “Coffee, Country & Cody” on June 26 (6am) and heads to Memphis for a show at Kix on Beale that evening.

Bobby Bones Real Name, Birthday, Salary, Wiki

If you’ve been watching American Idol this season, you’ve probably noticed the show’s “in-house mentor” Bobby Bones. He was promoted to full-time mentor after a guest appearance last season, and can be seen chatting with contestants after their performances.

However, you might be wondering just who this Bobby Bones is (and if that’s his real name). Since he’ll be choosing songs for the contestants to perform in this Sunday’s new episode, we thought it would be the perfect time to share some facts about him.

1. Bobby Bones isn’t his real name.

You probably could have guessed this, but Bones isn’t his real last name. Instead, he was born Bobby Estell. So where did he get his stage name? He told Today in 2016 that it comes from a time in eighth grade when his shorts tore during wrestling. He says the kids gave him the nickname “T-Bone.” Whether that’s true or not is up to you to decide.

2. He had a difficult childhood.

Bobby’s mother was 15 years old when she had him, and his father left them when he was 5 or 6. His mother struggled with drug and alcohol abuse, and he was adopted and co-parented by his grandmother.

“I would see her drunk. Wouldn’t really understand it, but I would see her drunk,” Bobby told the Tennessean of his mom. “It was just normal for her to not be around sometimes.” Bobby’s mother passed away in 2011, when she was only in her 40s.

3. He hosts a radio show.

If you didn’t know what Bobby was famous for, this is it. He’s been hosting radio shows since he was a teenager. He currently hosts The Bobby Bones Show, which is focused on country music and features interviews with stars like Luke Bryan. The show originates from WSIX-FM in Nashville and is syndicated through iHeartRadio.

4. He’s in a band.

Bobby and his producer Eddie started a band called The Raging Idiots. They’ve performed for charity and released an album in 2016 called The Critics Give It 5 Stars. It included the single “If I Was Your Boyfriend.” The band’s songs have humorous lyrics. Other titles include “Chick-Fil-a (… But It’s Sunday)” and “We Can’t Stand Each Other” (which featured Carrie Underwood).

5. He won Dancing with the Stars.

Bobby competed on Season 27 of DWTS last year, with professional dance partner Sharna Burgess. They ended up winning the competition, with the Chicago Tribune calling it the “biggest upset” in the show’s history. Even Bobby admitted, “I’m not here because of my scores. I’m here because of my people.” It just goes to show how important voting is on these shows.

6. He has experience as a talent show judge.

Not only has Bobby competed on a talent show, but he’s also judged one. Last year, he appeared on the Topgolf show Who Will Rock You, which featured unsigned bands.

7. He’s written two best-selling books.

Bobby published Bare Bones: I’m Not Lonely If You’re Reading This Book in 2016 and Fail Until You Don’t: Fight. Grind. Repeat in 2018. Both books were New York Times Best Sellers and focused on stories from his life.

8. He spent $13,000 on a publicity stunt.

In 2014, Bobby put up four billboards in Nashville which read, “Go Away Bobby Bones.” Since ratings for his radio show weren’t great, the host decided this might drum up attention.

“What I’d done is created a company which paid another company which I’d created which paid the billboard company,” he explained. “So there was no way to track it back to me…And people couldn’t figure out.” He later revealed it in his book.

9. He wants to run for president.

Bobby is interested in entering politics, recently telling People that he hopes to one day be the governor of his home state of Arkansas, or maybe even U.S. president.
“I don’t even like saying I want to be a politician because it’s such a grody word,” he said. “I feel the only way I’m going to win is if they see me as them – ‘cause that’s the only reason I’ve been able to do anything so far.”

Bobby, who has said he’s a registered independent, has talked about running for Arkansas governor in previous interviews and on Twitter.

10. He filled in for Ryan Seacrest as American Idol host.

Earlier this season, Ryan Seacrest called in sick for the first time in the show’s 17-season run. Bobby Bones filled in as host. According to a TV Line poll, most viewers either didn’t notice Ryan was gone or actually preferred Bobby as a host.

This begs the question of whether Bobby might replace Ryan in future seasons. If that’s the case, aren’t you glad you learned a few things about him first?
