Dierks Bentley’s “Miles & Music for Kids” will return to Nashville Sun., Oct. 14 for the seventh annual celebrity motorcycle ride and concert. The event begins at Harley-Davidson of Columbia, Tenn. with a scenic hour-long motorcycle trek ending at downtown Nashville’s Riverfront Park. Following the ride, Bentley will host a family-friendly jam-style concert with special guests Sheryl Crow, Chris Young, Brantley Gilbert, The Cadillac Black and Craig Campbell joining him on the ACM Lifting Lives main stage. More artist announcements will be made in the coming weeks.
“I really want to blow Miles & Music out this year and make it bigger than ever,” said Bentley. “We’ve had the chance to help a lot of communities across the country, but the heart and soul of this event is in downtown Nashville with Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt and the artists and friends who come out and help us raise money. It’s my favorite thing we do all year.”
Since hitting the pavement in 2006, “Miles & Music for Kids” has held 12 events in seven US cities to raise over $2 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the country.
Tickets for the Nashville event go on sale Fri., Aug. 17 at 10 AM/CT through Ticketmaster. Fans can purchase tickets for the ride, concert and receive a commemorative T-shirt for $50, or attend the concert for $20. Special VIP packages are also available.
