"I am truly looking forward to my participation in CRS-38,” Bon Jovi said. “The success of ‘Who Says You Can’t Go Home’ at Country Radio proves how incredibly active and passionate the format and its listeners are. We are very proud to have been embraced by the community that we have come to love."
Added Ed Salamon, Executive Director of CRB, "Jon Bon Jovi is making a significant commitment to the Country Radio format by writing and recording Country music in Nashville. In addition to his music achievements, he’s also a successful businessman as co-owner of the Arena Football League's Philadelphia Soul. We welcome him to the Country Community think there’s a lot that we can learn from him."
Since their explosion onto the rock scene in 1983, Bon Jovi has sold more than 120 million albums worldwide. Their hits including, "You Give Love a Bad Name,” "Livin' On A Prayer" and "Wanted Dead or Alive" have become some of the most recognizable songs in rock music history.

The song became the first-ever number one Country hit for a rock band. The duet was also nominated for a CMA award for "Musical Event of the Year" at the 2006 CMA Awards.
