Two of Dierks Bentley's favorite things to do are play music and riding motorcycles. He combines both loves into one special event for his seventh annual “Miles & Music for Kids” celebrity motorcycle ride and concert in Nashville, TN on Sunday, October 14, 2012.
The charity event has occurred on 12 occasions in seven US cities to raise over $2 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the country.
Tickets going on sale this Fri., Aug.17 at 10:00A CT through TicketMaster. But DB Congress (fan club members) will be able to buy tickets during the pre-sale that begins Wed., Aug. 15 at 10:00 a.m. CT through dierks.com. Be sure to be logged in with your fan club login before the pre-sale begins.
There will NOT be a Meet and Greet offered for this event.
The event begins at Harley-Davidson of Columbia (1616 Harley Davidson Blvd., Columbia, TN) for a scenic hour-long motorcycle ride 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 all joining him on the ACM Lifting Lives main stage. More artist announcements will be made in the upcoming weeks.
"I really want to blow Miles & Music out this year and make it bigger than ever," said Dierks. "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 Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital and the artists and friends who come out and help us raise money. It's my favorite thing we do all year."
Fans can purchase tickets for the ride, concert and commemorative T-shirt for $50, or those looking to attend the concert only can purchase tickets for $20. Special VIP packages are also available. All proceeds from the event will benefit Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.
