Bones was set to be at the event to be one of the presenters for Carrie Underwood. She was one of the Artists Of The Year honorees, along with Dan + Shay, Thomas Rhett, Luke Combs, and Kane Brown, plus Breakout Artist Of The Year Ashley McBryde, and Artist Of A Lifetime Reba McEntire. Bones went on stage twice during the evening. After Dan + Shay kicked off the show with a performance of their song "Tequila," Bones was the first one to take the stage to talk to the audience. During his short speech, he even got Reba to give him a big smile. He was then back on stage before Underwood's time to be honored.
What people didn't see on television though was all the fun stuff that happened behind the scenes. Bones was sitting at a table with Big Bang Theory actor Johnny Galecki, who was there to present Combs. He spoke with Tori Kelly for a bit and confessed on The Bobby Bones Show that he later realized he thought she sang "Fight Song," AKA thought her name was Rachel Platten. He also talked about getting caught up with Bob, who is known to most as Kid Rock.
Below is Bones full recap of the fun evening in Nashville.
