Bobby Bones kicked off the 1st annual Pimpin Joy Week on The Bobby Bones morning show on March 3. The show, dedicated to spreading joy amidst the challenges and sorrows in life, suffered its own setbacks but soldiered on. Country singers Charlie Worsham, Brett Eldredge, Walker Hayes and Maggie Rose made it into the studio to perform despite winter’s latest blanket of ice. However, Brad Paisley and Thomas Rhett both had to bow out due to illness.
Pimpin Joy is a movement started by Bobby Bones and his crew to honor crew member Amy’s mom Judy who has been battling cancer for two years. Judy has shown tremendous courage but also joy in the midst of what could have been a time to wallow in sorrow. She was the inspiration behind Pimpin Joy, but the movement doesn’t end with her.
The Bobby Bones Show invites people to call in or use social media with the hashtag #pimpinjoy to share their own stories of choosing joy or spreading joy to others. During the Pimpin Joy Week kickoff show, listeners called in to say they’d beaten cancer, were spreading joy through encouraging cards at a doctor’s office, and more.
Meanwhile via Twitter, Bobby Bones Show fans have used the Pimpinjoy hashtag to report clothes made for orphans and widows, saving abandoned dogs, and keeping a good attitude during a traffic jam.
Also during the morning radio show Walker Hayes performed the official “Joy Like Judy” song and Judy herself even called in to express her thankfulness that Bobby Bones is pimpin joy. Throughout the week of March 3-7, Bobby Bones’ special guests are scheduled to include Jake Owen, Dierks Bentley, Jerrod Niemann, Gloriana, A Great Big World, Dan + Shay, Tyler Farr, Sheryl Crow, Kellie Pickler, Parmalee, Craig Campbell, Craig Morgan, and Frankie Ballard.
