Bobby Bones talks to #KanvasLive at Tortuga Music Festival

This article is a part of #KanvasLive, an interactive, cross-platform content series brought to life on the Kanvas app and AOL.com. See more on coverage here.

Bobby Bones knows how to woo a crowd -- he's been doing it for years as the host of nationally syndicated radio program, "The Bobby Bones Show" out of Nashville.

Bones has been winning over audiences as the voice of the south since he started doing radio 14 years ago. Since then, his career has taken him from Little Rock to Austin, and now, Nashville. The 36-year-old has become a regular stop for some of country music's biggest stars, from Taylor Swift to Tim McGraw.

But now, Bones has a new project -- a musical group called "The Raging Idiots." He formed it with his show's media producer, Eddie Garcia. The band used Bones' love of comedy and country music to create their new album, "The Critics Gave It 5 Stars," which was released in March.

Bones and "The Raging Idiots" definitely charmed the crowds at Tortuga Music Festival this past weekend in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.


AOL.com had the chance to chat with Bones about his favorite part of being in a band, plans for the future and his dream collaboration (and it's not a country star).
