Dierks Bentley’s 10th annual Miles & Music For Kids event, held Sunday (Nov. 1) in Nashville, raised a record-breaking $636,479 for Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital in Vanderbilt.

Bentley led a motorcycle ride from the Harley-Davidson dealership in Columbia, Tennessee, into downtown Nashville, then hosted an all-star concert at Ascend Amphitheater. The concert featured Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett, Cole Swindell, The Cadillac Three, Canaan Smith, Brooke Eden and emcee Storme Warren.

“You always want to make each year different and raise more money, especially with it being the 10th anniversary,” said Bentley. “We had a killer lineup and moved over to the new Ascend Amphitheater, but I was completely shocked to see that first number when they flipped over the check – a six! Really big thanks to all the fans and friends who helped make it such a huge night.”

The donation brings his 10-year total to nearly $4 million in all.
