It's their 35th wedding anniversary this weekend and Kimberly has always wanted to go to Nashville since they had never been. So Merle booked a surprise trip to Nashville for them to celebrate and they leave tonight! He called into the show in hopes Bobby Bones would let him share the surprise news on the air. Bones did and they made sure his wife Kimberly was listening to the radio at the exact time of the announcement!
Bones and Amy hooked them up with a special dinner reservation while they're in town, and Bones sent money to Merle to cover the dinner.
