Bones plans book

Thursday, March 15, 2018 – Bobby Bones, the man behind the syndicated radio show, Bobby Bones Show, will release his second book, "Fail Until Y ou Don't: Fight. Grind. Repeat." On June 19.

The book, put out by Dey Street Books, is the follow-up to "Bare Bones: I'm Not Lonely If You're Reading This Book." The new effort is an inspirational and humorous collection of stories about Bones' biggest misses in life and how he turned them into lessons and wins. He shares ideas and motivations for finding success even when seemingly surrounded by impossible odds or tough failures.

The book also features anecdotes from some of his famous friends who open up about their own missteps, including model Brooklyn Decker, Charlamagne Tha God, former tennis star Andy Roddick and Chris Stapleton.

"I want people to see that other people are failing too," Bones said. "Instagram isn't real life. I wrote this book so people could see they weren't alone. I wrote this book to give people the tools to use failure to their advantage. This book will probably be a failure too...and that's okay."

The Critics Give It 5 Stars CD review - The Critics Give It 5 Stars

That doesn't mean this album is a failure. It just means that this feels more like a vanity project or an extended prank on his syndicated radio show rather than a shot at stardom, even the marginalized stardom of humorous or parodic country »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Rising Appalachia buck the mainsteam, and that's fine with them – Rising Appalachia would not be accused of being in the musical mainstream. Not too many bands who combine folk and Appalachian sounds with new world music could possibly be. And that suits the sister-led duo of Chloe Smith and Leah Song just fine. In fact, at one point, Chloe made it clear she did not embrace radio play as a sign of success... »»»
Concert Review: Bingham plays with something to prove – Ryan Bingham mainly focused on songs from his sixth album "American Love Song," for this lively show. Backed by a supportive band that also included two female backup singers and a fiddler, Bingham's eclectic setlist touched upon country, singer/songwriter folk, rock and blues. Bingham reached for lively country sounds early on, with... »»»
