Dierks Bentley Sets Date, Guests for Annual ‘Miles & Music for Kids’ Event
Dierks Bentley has announced the date and initial lineup for his 8th Annual Miles & Music for Kids charity event.
This year’s event will take place on Sunday, Nov. 3 in Nashville. The first announced special guests who will join Bentley for the motorcycle ride and concert are Jake Owen and Easton Corbin, with more artists to be added as the date approaches.
The Miles portion of the event features a motorcycle ride that will begin at Harley Davidson of Columbia in Columbia, Tenn. and run for one hour before ending at Riverfront Park in downtown Nashville. Following the ride, Bentley and guests will perform on stage at the Riverfront.
“This is honestly the most fun day of my year, and it brings the whole community together for a great cause,” Bentley says in a press release. “The lineup is going to be killer, and it’ll be a fun way to kick off a big week that celebrates country music with the CMA Awards just a few days later.”
Bentley started Miles & Music in 2006 to raise funds for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals throughout the country. This year’s event will benefit Vanderbilt’s Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital, which treats children with common health issues, as well as serious illnesses.
Starting Wednesday, Sept. 4, pre-sale tickets to the event will be available at www.dierks.com. General tickets go on sale through Ticketmaster at 10AM on Friday, Sept. 6. Combo tickets for the motorcycle ride and concert are $50, with concert-only tickets being offered for $30. VIP tickets are also available. More information is available at www.dierks.com.
