Country radio DJ, Bobby Bones, is a big supporter of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, using his platform to raise millions of dollars for the children’s charity. This morning (Dec. 7) the host invited some of country music’s finest voices to join his Radiothon—once again, raising money for the charity.
Bobby invited some of country’s hottest stars to be a part of the event, including Dan+Shay, Kip Moore, Dustin Lynch and Lauren Alaina.
Artists lending their time to participate in the radio show got to cover a song that was not their own. Dan+Shay took on Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect,” Dustin Lynch covered “You Gotta Be” by Des’ree, Kip Moore performed Tom Petty’s “Learning To Fly” and more.
One of the highlights of the show was when Lauren Alaina tackled Lee Ann Womack’s 2000 hit, “I Hope You Dance.” While it’s never easy to sing a song that early in the morning, taking on Lee Ann Womack at any time of day is a near impossible feat. But as expected, Lauren aced the song, sounding flawless in her delivery. Makes you wonder what a Lee Ann Womack/Lauren Alaina duet would sound like. Let’s work on that.
The morning show aired the radiothon live for the second year—raising $1.3 million last year— and allows listeners to donate, via text, by texting the word bobby to 785833 or by calling 1-800-795-1800.
