Bobby Bones, dubbed by New York Times as “the biggest thing in country radio,” recently announced that he will take his FUNNY & ALONE STAND UP COMEDY TOUR nationwide in 2017, revealing a schedule of dates kicking off in Virginia Beach, VA on 1/13. The host of iHeartMedia’s The Bobby Bones Show, reaching millions of listeners on nearly 100 stations, Bones’ stand-up show combines his love for country music and comedy in his distinct humorous patter, while regaling stories from growing up in rural Arkansas, to hosting the biggest show in country radio. Proving to be an instant hit amongst audiences, the show continues to sell out venues across the country, with some selling out in just minutes, prompting the addition of more dates to meet demand. Heralded by Rolling Stone as “if not a king of all media, then at least a prince,” Bones’ profile catapulted this year with the release of BARES BONES: I’M NOT LONELY IF YOU’RE READING THIS BOOK (Dey Street Books). The fearless release spent four weeks on New York Times Bestsellers List earlier this year, following an overwhelming debut that saw the memoir claim the No. One spot on multiple lists including USA Today and Wall Street Journal. Having broken some of country music’s freshest talent, while forging uncharted territory in his own career, Bones was recently honored by ASCAP with the “Partners In Music” Award, given to those who have shown exceptional dedication in presenting ASCAP members’ music to the public.
