Dierks Bentley wrapped up the first leg of his Riser Tour with the 2014 Miles and Music for Kids, which raised a record-breaking amount.

The ninth annual event brought in $335,479 for Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville.

"I’m still coming down from the high of such an unbelievable last run of shows on the summer leg of this tour,” Bentley says. "Then we got back to Nashville, and I was totally blown away by the outpouring of support we got for this year's Miles and Music. This little event we started nine years ago has taken on a life of its own. I feel like I'm just a small part of this thing. It has really become about country music fans and bikers coming together to help our community and those kids. It's incredible."

Bentley was joined by Randy HouserKip MooreJon Pardi and Chris Young for the hour-long motorcycle ride, which began at the the Harley Davidson dealership in Columbia, Tenn., and ended at Riverfront Park in downtown Nashville for a concert.

The second leg of Bentley's Riser Tour kicked off Oct. 2, with dates running through the end of 2014, featuring openers Houser and Eric Paslay. A list of stops can be found at DierksBentley.com.
