#1 New York Times Bestseller

A touching, funny, heart-wrenching, and triumphant memoir from one of the biggest names in radio, the host of The Bobby Bones Show, one of the most listened-to drive time morning radio shows in the nation.

Growing up poor in Mountain Pine, Arkansas, with a young, addicted mom, Bobby Estell fell in love with country music. Abandoned by his father at the age of five, Bobby saw the radio as his way out—a dream that came true in college when he went on air at the Henderson State University campus station broadcasting as Bobby Bones, while simultaneously starting The Bobby Bones Show at 105.9 KLAZ. Bobby’s passions were pop, country music, and comedy, and he blended the three to become a tastemaker in the country music industry, heard by millions daily. Bobby broke the format of standard country radio, mixing country and pop with entertainment news and information, and has interviewed some of the biggest names in the business, including Luke Bryan, Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, Lady Antebellum, and Jason Aldean.

Yet despite the glamour, fame, and money, Bobby has never forgotten his roots, the mom and grandmother who raised him, the work ethic he embraced which saved him and encouraged him to explore the world, and the good values that shaped him. In this funny, poignant memoir told in Bobby’s distinctive patter, he takes fans on a tour of his road to radio. Bobby doesn’t shy away from the curves he continues to navigate—including his obsessive-compulsive disorder—on his journey to find the happiness of a healthy family.

Funny and tender, raw and honest, Bare Bones is pure Bobby Bones—surprising, entertaining, inspiring, and authentic.


  • Real. Inspirational. Funny.

    By Tricia Okawa
    I've listened to the Bobby Bones show for a year and knew most of the stories and information about Bobby. However I think the last couple chapters really helped some up a lot of inspirational points. Not only is this a good book but it helps you to reflect life. To better explain the book here are two mottos: fight, grind, repeat. And everyday is a good day. Not the best written but that is some of the essence of it being real.
  • Good Story

    Buy the book! Genuine. Easy read. Honest. And.... of course.... funny! Plus: He's eleven bucks richer with my purchase! Use this teacher's 11 dollars for your next scholarship, Bobby:). Money well spent.

  • Very bare bones

    I listen to The Bobby Bones show. I like it. But Now, I feel an obsession coming on. Bobby really bares all. It's very raw. And real. Some of the stuff he admits to is pretty uncomfortable. The fact that he's able to open up like this just makes him that much more endearing. I can relate to him on several levels. Again, I feel an obsession coming on. God bless you Bobby! God keep you. Thank you for inspiring me to be a better person. #PimpingJoy
