New York Times Best Selling Author and host of the Nationally Syndicated Radio Show Bobby Bones Show, Bobby Bones celebrated the newest book on his roster, Fail Until You Don't: Fight. Grind. Repeat. After a huge first success with his funny, tell-all memoir Bare Bones, Bones was pushed to write another book.
Despite the huge success of the first book, Bones didn't want to write another book for the money or just because. He wanted to make sure the book had meaning. In his attempt at celebrating failures that eventually found their way to success, Bobby offers up his most genuine and valiant advice.
In talking with Madison Vain from Esquire during his iHeartCountry Book Release Party, Bones details the writing style people can expect. "I use a lot of parentheses and then I go... SQUIRREL." Bones states that his writing is meant to be relatable and for the average person. Even noting that his book is like the "Harry Potter for Middle America."
Bones made sure to note that this book is about failures. We often see people for their success and not for the things that got them to that point, "All of us fail [...] people just see the stuff that's good."
Vain was sure to bring up one of the most controversial aspects detailed in his book, Bones story of talking with his biological father for the first time. Bones told the audience that the reason behind him going to finally speak with his biological father was due to a feeling of fraudulence. Bones said, "I felt like a fraud saying chase your dreams, face your fears [...] because I didn't do mine." While writing the book, Bones did face his fears and met with his biological father. Something no one close to Bobby even saw coming.
The iHeartCountry Book Release Party ended with country artist LOCASH performing some of their hits, but before they took the stage, Bones shared something important about his career and his failures. He nodded the book to those who've believed in him saying, "The people that bet on me, I want to prove them right."
LOCASH took the stage shortly after to perform some of their songs including the hit "I Know Somebody" and more. The most notable was their song "I Love This Life," a song that was strongly supported by Bones in the early stages before country radio really embraced the duo.
