Bo’s off to the Middle East for a week-long tour with Armed Forces Entertainment. He’s been eager to get back to the troops the last few years, so it’s no surprise a flight attendant caught him with a big smile:
Had Bo Bice, the 2005 American Idol runner up to Carrie Underwood and his band on my flight tonight to Kuwait. They’re continuing on to Afghanistan to play for the troops. Didn’t recognize him without the long hair! Fun guys.
We know you’ll show ‘em a good time, Bo and band. Safe travels.

American Idol Season 7 alum Michael Johns died unexpectedly yesterday, much too young.
All of us at BFB send our sympathies to Michael’s family, friends, and fans.

Bo was interviewed in Nashville few months ago during CMA Fest, but the conversation has only now made it online.
As always, Bo has a lot of plans. I’m a little skeptical of some of them, but I enjoy hearing him sound so enthused.

Look who’s going to be working with Bo tomorrow!
Jim Peterik’s Official Page
Need to chill and get psyched for the week to come in Nashville. Monday writing with my pal Bo Bice for the new BS&T cd. He is the new lead singer. Good move Bo and BS&T! If you woulda told me this would someday happen when I was 18 watching them at the Kinetic Playground I woulda said “Shut the door! No way”. Of course I was channeling their singer David Clayton Thomas when I recorded Vehicle in 1970. What a crazy world! If you hang on tight you’ll see it full circle.
Wonderful news – Jim knows how to write great songs for big bands. I bet they come up with a barnburner. And we know that everytime those two get together, they rock…
Here they are meeting for the first time at Tin Pan South in 2010.
The two of them singing the hell out of Vehicle at a music camp for high school kids.
Getting down (and up) with Witness.
Have fun, boys!

Bo sang a few songs with Mac Powell at the CMA Fest last night. The two of them have been tweeting one another for years about jamming together, which made it extra fun.

One of the highlights of Bo’s run on American Idol was his sincere and lovely version of Time In A Bottle.
We all know that the performance led to a friendship between Bo and the Croce family, but we didn’t know how it all started. Until now.
Bo Bice wanted to perform Jim Croce’s “Time in a Bottle,” but music supervisor Susan Slamer wasn’t sure she could get permission. When the song cleared she called Croce’s widow, Ingrid, to thank her. Ingrid said she was going to say no, but her son A.J. was a fan of Bo’s. When Slamer said that Bo was a fan of her late husband, Ingrid asked to speak to Bo.
Bice was rehearsing on stage when Slamer handed him her cell phone and told him to place a call to a certain number. As the phone rang, Slamer told him the woman about to answer was Jim Croce’s widow. Bo started talking and the rest of the top 11 could see tears streaming down his face. They rushed over to see if he was all right. “Everything’s great,” Slamer assured them. “When Bo hung up, he said it was the most amazing moment of his life.”
Altogether now – awww. Yet another reason that Bo has never been anything but grateful for his AI experience.

There’s a commercial out for the upcoming season of the tv show 24, which features the classic Chambers Brothers tune Time Has Come Today. The sound is pretty muffled, but there are times it almost sort of maybe sounds like Bo’s version of the song and not the original. Bo’s tweeted that he doesn’t think it’s him, but some of the peeps disagree.
Chambers Brothers version:
What say you – is it Bo or not?
