Bobby Bones & The Raging Idiots had the crowd on their feet at the sold-out 4th Annual Million Dollar Show last night, bringing in more than $200,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Ticket sales and donations – including a $10,000 gift from 3 Doors Down’s 501(c)3 “The Better Life Foundation” presented by Brad Arnold – helped make last night’s total a record-breaking amount for the yearly event and brought Bones’ total raised for the cause to more than $10 million. An unforgettable lineup of today’s top artists took the stage for the cause, including Luke Bryan, Lady Antebellum, Cole Swindell, Jon Pardi, Brad Arnold of 3 Doors Down, Maggie Rose, Bailey Bryan, Adam Hambrick, Rachel Wammack as well as surprise guests Sharna Burgess, Kristian Bush, Gavin DeGraw and Lindsay Ell.
