This just in! One of our favorite radio shows “The Bobby Bones Show” took home the top prize for ACM National On-Air Radio Personality of the Year — well, kind of. It was a tie with Lon Helton of the Country Countdown USA. But we’re still excited for Bobby and his crew! Especially after having had him as guest for a Country Music Chat #CMchat Twitterview last night! If you missed it here is the wrap-up.
The radio show has been gaining popularity over the last year and host Bobby Bones has developed quite the following in that time. Congratulations to Bobby Bones, Amy, and Lunchbox on the awesome achievment. It is well deserved. Keep doing what you’re doing because you guys all make a difference.
This is the first ACM National On-Air Personality of the Year Award win for Bobby Bones, Amy, and Lunchbox of The Bobby Bones Show, and third win for Lon Helton of Country Countdown USA. Helton previously won this award in 2011 and 2008.
