Capitol Records artist Dierks Bentley is continuing his nationwide Miles & Music for Kids celebrity motorcycle ride and concert series with a stop in Dallas-Fort Worth on Sunday, April 25. Presented by Nationwide Insurance, proceeds from the event will benefit both the Children’s Medical Center Dallas and Cook Children’s in Fort Worth.
The hour-long ride will depart Harley-Davidson of North Texas in Carrollton and travel to Billy Bob’s Texas in Fort Worth. The trek will culminate with a special concert featuring Bentley and a handful of surprise Texas music heavyweights.
“I’m going to try and keep all my special guests a secret for as long as I can,” Bentley says. “I’ll just say that they are five of my favorite Texas country artists, and you better get there early because if you don’t, they will drink all the beer.”
Tickets for the family-friendly event go on sale March 1 through Ticketmaster. Prices start at $20, with special VIP packages also available.
Last year, Bentley joined forces with Nationwide Insurance, CMT One Country and the Children’s Miracle Network to expand the successful Miles & Music for Kids event to six cities across the country in 2009 and 2010, with all proceeds benefiting Children’s Miracle Network hospitals in those areas. Since it began in 2006, Miles & Music for Kids has raised over $1 million.
