Bobby Bones and The Raging Idiots held their 5th annual Million Dollar Show last night (Jan. 13), benefiting St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, at the Ryman Auditorium. Bones and the band served as the host for the evening, ushering out performers and surprise guests all night.

The event brought in more than $267,000.00 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, helping to bring Bones’ and The Bobby Bones Show‘s total for the cause to over $14 million.

The first performer to take the stage was Brett Young, who was met with a thunderous applause. He sang his recent single “Catch,” and invited couples to slow dance to his ‘career-making song,’ “In Case You Didn’t Know.” BBR’s Lainey Wilson followed Young with a spirited cover of Queen’s “Fat Bottomed Girls,” as well as her first single, “Dirty Looks.” The appearance was her first time playing the Ryman stage.

Another BBR act, King Calaway, were up next. The six-member band sang their own “No Matter What” and covered the Eagles’ “Take It Easy.”

Colbie Caillat then appeared onstage to sing her monster 2007-hit, “Bubbly,” before inviting her Gone West band-mates Justin Young, Jason Reeves, and Nelly Joy up to sing “Gone West,” which turned out to be one of the best performances of the evening.

The next performer, a surprise, was Sawyer Brown. They sang “Six Days on the Road” and “Some Girls Do,” and lead singer Mark Miller showed off his dance moves.

For one of the most exciting moments of the night, Brooks & Dunn appeared mid-way through the evening to a thrilled Ryman crowd on their feet. They performed “My Maria,” “Boot Scootin’ Boogie,” and “Neon Moon.” The whole crowd grinned ear to ear, sang every word and never left their feet.

The next surprise of the evening came when Old Dominion stepped on stage. “We didn’t know we were going to have to follow Brooks & Dunn,” lead singer Matt Ramsey said.

The recently signed Heath Sanders played his first performance at the Ryman Auditorium, and even received a standing ovation for his cover of Journey’s “Faithfully.”

Lindsay Ell made a surprise appearance, singing her new single “I Don’t Love You.” She then joined another surprise guest, Foreigner, for their hit “I Want To Know What Love Is.”

The crowd roared when Kane Brown took the stage with his guitarist and violinist. He sang two of his sweet songs, “Good As You” and “Homesick,” which he dedicated to the military.

The last surprise of the evening came when Sam Hunt joined Bones on-stage to perform his recent single, “Kinfolks,” as well as “Body Like A Back Road.” Hunt said that he was already planning to be at the show, so he was delighted to perform.
