"I've been doing stand up comedy since I was 19 years old, and I'm really excited to be able to do it for more people next year," said Bones.  "My favorite thing to do is be on the radio, but it's followed very close by my love for comedy and the stage.  I wanted to put together a show that lovers of comedy and music would enjoy.  It'll be fun to bring out Walker Hayes, who is one of my current favorite artists.  And I'm also excited for the rest of the country to see Nikita Karmen, but mostly I'm just pumped to make people laugh."

Good luck to all participants.   

The winner will be selected on Friday, January 6, 2017 and their name will be posted on the Old Dominion Realty Facebook page.
