On episode #209 of the BobbyCast, Bobby Bones, Eddie and Mike D revealed their Mount Rushmore of most-listened albums, which called for each person chose five of their most-listened albums throughout their lifetime. Each of Bobby’s most-listened albums happened to be from different stages in his life, from his childhood all the way up to adulthood. He started his list with John Mayer’s Continuum, which, after some deliberation, he said is his ‘favorite album of all time.’ 

“It was right in that stage in my life where you’re starting to make all the big decisions,” says Bobby of the album. “That music when you’re in your mid-to-late 20s, even early 30s, it’s like the adult decision album.”

Bobby then mentioned the Beastie Boys’ Licensed to Ill and Hootie And The Blowfish’s Cracked Rear View for his next two albums. On Hootie, Bobby says he specifically listened to “Let Her Cry” on repeat, and even wore out the tape to the point where it started burning on the side. For his second to last album on his Mount Rushmore of most-listened albums, Bobby turned to Kacey Musgraves’ debut offering, Same Trailer Different Park.

“As I got to my 30s, early-mid 30s, it’s Same Trailer Different Park from Kacey Musgraves,” Bobby says of his next pick. “Every song non-stop.”

For the last album on his list, Bobby went for an iconic live album from a country legend: Garth BrooksLive From Central Park.

“I would know the cheer parts, the parts where he would talk, because I would listen to this record so much,” says Bobby.

When it came time for Eddie to choose his Mount Rushmore of most-listened albums, he picked up right where Bobby left off with another Garth Brooks project, Ropin’ The Wind.

That was a cassette, one of my first cassettes ever,” says Eddie. “There’s a theme, too. I found that a lot of these artists ended up being my favorite artists of all time on their third record. I really wasn’t big on first Garth Brooks, I really wasn’t big on No Fences. It was big around my school and people always played it, but I didn’t buy it. I didn’t catch it until Ropin’ The Wind.”

Eddie then finished out his list with Pearl Jam, Counting Crows, Bob Marley, and Jimmy Buffett. After that, Mike D took to the mic to talk about some of his most-listened albums, including projects from Blink 182 and Kanye West. To hear that and more, listen to episode #209 of the BobbyCast.
