Jason Aldean and The Raging Idiots (Bobby Bones and his producer Eddie) will perform a benefit concert tomorrow night (Tues., Nov. 16) for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The event is at Marathon Music Works in Nashville at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m.
Bones made a deal on air with Aldean, that Bones’ listeners would raise $50,000 for Aldean’s charity, if the star would play a show for St. Jude’s in return. One hundred percent of the ticket price will be donated to the hospital. Tickets are available here.
Last week, The Bobby Bones Show made a donation of over $150,000 to St. Jude’s in honor of co-host Amy’s mother Judy, who recently passed away from cancer. Listeners of the show had followed Judy’s battle with the disease. When she died last month, Amy’s family requested donations for the hospital in lieu of flowers. Listeners and friends including Dierks Bentley, Lindsay Ell and Little Big Town, made donations totaling more than $150,000 in one week. Bones and crew including Amy, Lunchbox, Eddie, Nada and Cruz, visited St. Jude’s in Memphis, Tenn. to make the donation, and The Raging Idiots and Maggie Rose performed for patients.
As previously reported, iHeartMedia, Inc. and Bones recently partnered to launch a development and production company, Right Side Blind Productions.
