Carrie Underwood + More Guest on Raging Idiots Album
Some of Nashville's top acts, including Carrie Underwood, Charles Kelley and Kelsea Ballerini, will be featured on the new project from Bobby Bones and the Raging Idiots, the comedy group composed of Bobby Bones and Producer Eddie from iHeartMedia's The Bobby Bones Show.
The duo announced that their first full-length comedy album, titled The Critics Give It Five Stars, will feature 13 original tracks, along with some appearances from their famous friends. Brad Paisley and Lindsay Ell will also lend their voices to the project. The Raging Idiots tapped into some of Music City's finest writers for the record, including Lee Thomas Miller ("Perfect Storm," "Southern Girl") and Sugarland's Kristian Bush.
"Every time someone buys our record, an angel get its wings,” Bones says in a press release. “I'd buy 10 copies of this album. I'd go to the store and demand them right now! I haven't listened to it yet, but I hear the critics love it."
Bones is a co-writer on all 13 tracks, which all draw satirical inspiration from modern popular music and culture including "Netflix Love Song," "Starbucks!" and "If I Was Your Boyfriend," whose video recently debuted on CMT.
Bones has always been an avid supporter of charitable causes. A portion of the proceeds from the track "We Can’t Stand Each Other" -- which features Underwood -- will be donated to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and a portion of the proceeds from each package purchased through the duo's website will be donated to Musicians on Call.
The Critics Give It Five Stars is slated for release on March 18.
