Dierks Bentley will host his eighth annual Miles & Music for Kids event in Nashville on Nov. 3. Jake Owen and Easton Corbin have been confirmed as special guests.
The celebrity motorcycle ride and concert will benefit Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville. The ride will begin at the Harley-Davidson dealership in Columbia, Tenn., and conclude at Riverfront Park in downtown Nashville. Presale tickets will be available Wednesday (Sept. 4) on Bentley's official website. Remaining tickets go on sale Sept. 6 via Ticketmaster.
"This is honestly the most fun day of my year, and it brings the whole community together for a great cause," he said. "We got rained out last year for the first time, so I want to make up for it in a big way. 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."
Since establishing the charity event in 2006, Bentley has visited seven cities to raise more than $2 million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals throughout the nation. Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital is nationally recognized as a leading provider of pediatric health care services. No child is denied care on basis of limited ability to pay.
In related news, Bentley will perform Friday (Aug. 30) at Harley-Davidson's 110th anniversary celebration in Milwaukee. Taking place Thursday through Sunday, the festival features 60 acts, including Toby Keith, Kid Rock, John Fogerty, Brantley Gilbert, Kip Moore and Uncle Kracker, along with Aerosmith, Cheap Trick, the Doobie Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top and Blue Oyster Cult.
