Bobby Bones and The Raging Idiots Enlist Country Stars For First Full-Length Album


Bobby Bones and The Raging Idiots are set to release their first full-length album, The Critics Give It 5 Stars, on March 18, via Black River Entertainment.

The comedy group, comprised of Bobby Bones and Producer Eddie from iHeartMedia’s The Bobby Bones Show, brought in some top-shelf star power for the release. They recruited Charles Kelley, Carrie Underwood, Kelsea Ballerini, Brad Paisley, Lindsay Ell, and more for the project. Kelley joins on “She’s A 10, I’m A 2,” while Underwood appears on “We Can’t Stand Each Other.” Brad Paisley performs on “I Like You,” while Kelsea Ballerini lends her voice to the country rendition of “Starbucks!”

“Black River is pleased to be the home of great artists like Bobby Bones and The Raging Idiots,” said Black River Entertainment CEO Gordon Kerr. “Through the efforts of Bobby, Eddie and the other incredible artists who have come alongside them on this project, comedy music is alive and well in Nashville!”

“Every time someone buys our record, an angel get its wings,” adds Bobby Bones. “I’d buy 10 copies of this album. I’d go to the store and demand them right now! I haven’t listened to it yet, but I hear the critics love it.”

Bobby Bones, who recently nabbed his second ACM award for National On-Air Personality of the Year, co-wrote all the tracks on the album, which takes satirical and deliberate cues from today’s popular music, including the group’s lead track “If I Was Your Boyfriend,” the soon-to-be millennial-favorite “Netflix Love Song,” as well as offering fans two versions of the witty and instantly-infectious track “Starbucks!” depending on their personal genre preferences. The album also features some of Nashville’s top songwriters including Lee Thomas Miller and Kristian Bush. The music video for “If I Was Your Boyfriend” made its debut on CMT and is available now on iTunes.

Continuing in the charitable spirit that made The Raging Idiots a household name and raised over two million dollars for charities across America, a portion of the proceeds from “We Can’t Stand Each Other” with Carrie Underwood are being donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Additionally, fans can pre-order autographed copies of the entire album along with other unique merchandise offers at A portion of the proceeds from each package will go to Musicians On Call.
