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."

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: With or without band, Isbell satisfies
Usually, when an artist performs without his regular backing band, it becomes about mathematics of subtraction. That artist is armed with far fewer artistic weapons at his/her disposal, after all. In Jason Isbell's case, though, when he performed with just his wife and fiddler Amanda Shires, it was more about substitution than subtraction.... »»»
Concert Review: Grammy nominations aside, Yola, Kiah are the real deal
