It all started with a segment idea from Raymundo for The Bobby Bones Show. He brought up on the show that he thought it would be pretty cool to be a songwriter. Living in Nashville, there are there fair-share of songwriters in town. Bobby Bones encouraged him to pursue it, if it was something he really wanted to do. If he did write a song, Bones would play it. So Raymundo teamed up with one of his friends and artist Eric Dodd to write the song "Baecation." The title was inspired by Raymundo's girlfriend Laura or as he always calls her... Bae.
Dodd and Raymundo were in a write and came up with the lyrics for the idea, although Raymundo claims he really didn't come up with many lyrics. However, he did have an appearance on the final song where he can be heard singing,
"Don't get that FOMO from Instagram // imagine these noodles are a catamaran and just float // go with the flow // they call me Bobby Bones SZN Raymundo."
The song was super catchy and everyone on the show loved it, along with the listeners of the show. People helped in sharing the summer song, which ended up making it's way up the country chart within the Top 30, and Top 100 with all genres. It maxed out at 22 on the country chart.
It's been a few months since the song came out, so now Raymundo is getting his payment from the song. He received his first paycheck and he made $500 for the song. It may have started out as a joking segment on The Bobby Bones Show, but it turned into a catchy song and a decent paycheck for Raymundo.
