Dierks and Today Lend a Hand

Dierks Bentley and Today show personality Al Roker surprised the students at the W.O. Smith Nashville Community Music School with a generous donation of instruments, Thursday, April 19.


Roker was in Nashville as part of the show’s Lend a Hand series that helps charities in different cities. He presented more than $106,000 of musical supplies, the largest donation in the school’s history. The school provides music lessons to children of low-income families at the cost of 50 cents per lesson. Dierks was on hand for the presentation and closed the event with a performance of his new single, “Free and Easy Down the Road I Go,” with a choir of 20 students from the school. “This was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up,” said Dierks. “Music lessons are such a great outlet for kids to be creative, and it helps keep them on the right track.”
