His real name is Bobby Estell and he came into the world on the 2nd of April 1980 when he was born in Hot Springs, Arkansas. He is American by nationality and his ethnicity is white. His mum Pamela Hurt got pregnant with him at age 15 while his dad whose identity has never been revealed was barely 17.

His early academic details have never been published but it is known that Bobby Bones attended Henderson State University where he graduated from with a degree in Radio/Television.
Growing up in abject poverty made Bobby Bones see a career in radio presenting as a means of escape and at the young age of 5 or 6, he was already envisaging a successful career as an on-air personality, and so it did not come as a surprise that he couldn’t wait to finish school before getting work at his campus radio station – Henderson State University, KSWH-FM 102.5 The Pulse. He was also at KLAZ in Hot Springs, Arkansas where he took on the on-air name Bobby Bones.

Is He Married or Dating A Girlfriend? Wife
Bobby Bones is currently single but he has been involved with a few women in the past. He was secretly dating singer Lindsay Ell before they decided to make it public in 2016. Unfortunately, their dalliance took a toll on Lindsay’s career because according to
her, the radio station was canceling many of her shows because of her involvement with Bobby which led the radio presenter to call off their relationship on October 23, 2017.
The OAP’s name was also linked with that of Rachel Reinert – a musical artist as well as Sharna Burgees from Dancing with the Stars. However, on his rumored relationship with his Dancing with the Stars (DWTS) partner, Sharna Burgess, neither of the two came forward to either confirm or refute the claim and the public is still left in the dark on that score.
