Miles & Music proved to be no match for wind and storms this past weekend in Nashville, so Dierks Bentley had to postpone his seventh annual Miles & Music for Kids celebrity motorcycle ride and concert on Sunday (Oct. 14). He tweeted, “Can’t tell you all how disappointed i am and my team is about today. we have been looking forward to this day for a year. Our fans came a long way to get here, and spent money to do so. and wanted to raise money for #vanderbiltchildrenshospital. thank you guys.” The ride was supposed to end with a riverfront show featuring Bentley and Sheryl Crow, Brantley Gilbert, Chris Young, Craig Campbell and the Cadillac Black. But instead, it ended with just Bentley and Sheryl Crow doing an impromptu concert at Nashville’s Hard Rock Cafe for the fans who were in town for the event. Which was, I’m sure, the silver lining to the clouds of the day.
