Bentley’s “Miles & Music” Raises $205K

Dierks Bentley hosted his sixth annual “Miles & Music for Kids” in Nashville on Sunday (10/16) and raised $205,000 for the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. The motorcycle caravan started in Columbia and rode to Nashville for a concert featuring Bentley and friends Eli Young Band, Charles Kelley, Colt Ford, Kevin Fowler, Josh Thompson, Craig Campbell, and Sarah Silva.

Over the series’ six-year history, Bentley has raised over $2 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. In 2009, Bentley joined forces with Nationwide Insurance, CMT One Country and the Children’s Miracle Network to expand the successful “Miles & Music for Kids.” The event was first held in Nashville and has expanded across the country visiting Phoenix, Dallas-Fort Worth, Seattle, Atlanta, Columbus and Chicago.

Bentley’s current single, “Home,” is quickly climbing MusicRow’s CountryBreakout Chart, and is at No. 26 in only its third week.
