Multi-media personality Bobby Bones invited me to join him on the latest episode of the BobbyCast to chat about the top songs of 2020 so far.

During the episode, Bones and I each reveal our Top 5 songs of 2020 (so far), and surprisingly, our two lists were very different.

Bones shared his personal favorite tracks, while I took a different approach, selecting what I believe are the biggest, most buzzed-about songs of the year. Our lists did, however, have one song in common.

Also this week, Bones chats with Eric Paslay about his new album, Nice Guy, and talks with Producer Eddie about some of the craziest and most expensive musician’s cars of all-time.
