Bobby Bones birthday is on April 2nd. He said that he appreciates all of the listeners of The Bobby Bones Show so much because they send him gifts for his birthday. This year though, he asked in lieu of people sending gifts to the radio station, he asked people donate to the charity he volunteers for Musicians On Call. Bones spent a decent amount of time in the hospital as a kid so he wants people to help those who are dealing with things at hospitals.
