Bones left all the students feeling inspired to chase after their dreams in the industry even after he stressed that it would not come easy, said Lauren Stoll, President of the CMA EDU’s MTSU chapter.

“Personally, I was so excited for the opportunity to put faces to the voices that America has fallen in love with,” Stoll said. “It was a given that the guest speakers from the Bobby Bones Show would keep us laughing…. However, Bobby Bones and crew were extremely encouraging with the idea that hard work pays off. They made members realize just how important it was to create connections and opportunities for themselves.”

Bobby Bones stressed the importance of internships, and finding your niche and getting your foot in the door with the “decision makers” in the business. Members tweeted about Bobby’s advice and the jokes from the other speakers, and Bones even gave out his e-mail address to prove his point that passionate students who stay involved will build necessary contacts. The Bobby Bones Show crew stayed after meeting to meet and greet with members who shared their love the show, their passion for industry goals, and even took some photos with the gracious speakers.
