June 8th marked a special day for The Bobby Bones Show as the first inaugural Bobby Bones Show live from The Ryman Auditorium went down for the 2018 CMA Festival. During the live show, the cast of the show sat on stage in front of a live audience for the Friday Morning Dance Party, Tell Me Something Good, Amy's Pile, The Morning Corny and artist performances, amongst other notable show segments.
One of the artist performances brought in American Idol's 2018 winner and Bobby Bones Mentee, Maddie Poppe. Poppe shared with Bobby the whirlwind of the last few weeks since her big win and how things are taking off now. Including her relationship with Caleb Lee Hutchinson, the runner-up on American Idol's 2018 season.
Poppe then performed a beautiful, acoustic rendition of "Rainbow Connection." Watch below!
