Bobby Bones recently took to social media to share a carousel of photos of him and his wife, Caitlin Parker Estell from their date night at the 56th Annual CMA Awards show on Nov. 9. 

In his caption, Bones gushed about his other half and shared how lucky he feels to have her by his side.

“Somebody won the powerball the other day, but I won the real lottery in @mrscaitlinestell. A little CMA documentation from last night,” he wrote. 

Bobby and Caitlin made an appearance on the red carpet in celebration of his radio show, The Bobby Bones Show, taking home the award in the Daily National Broadcast Personality of the Year category.

The nationally-syndicated radio host donned a stand-out matching set while Caitlin turned heads in her black lace floor-length gown. 


The couple first met in 2019 through a mutual friend and began dating several weeks later. They enjoyed a long-distance relationship for a few months until March 2020 when Parker relocated from California to Nashville. They got engaged in October of 2020 and tied the knot in July of 2021 at their Middle Tennessee home, according to People
