Dierks Bentley Sets Date for Ninth Annual Miles & Music for Kids
Attention, motorcycle enthusiasts: Dierks Bentley’s annual Miles & Music for Kids celebrity motorcycle ride and all-star concert—one of the more unique charitable events on the Music City calendar—will take place Sept. 28 in Nashville. Joining Dierks for the event, which benefits Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt as part of the Children’s Miracle Network, will be Randy Houser, Kip Moore, Jon Pardi and Chris Young.
The hour-long ride begins at the Harley-Davidson of Columbia south of Nashville and journey to Riverfront Park in downtown Nashville. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 11, at 10 a.m. and fans can purchase a combo ticket for ride and concert for $50, or concert only for $30. VIP packages are also available.
Dierks and team have been promoting the ride by sending flocks of his Riser Bird to locations around Nashville’s Music Row and beyond. Nashville residents can get involved and “Flock It Forward” by sending the birds to their friends as part of the fundraising push.
“The Riser bird symbol we’ve been using to represent this album has really come to mean something to my fans,” said Dierks in a statement. “I’ve been hearing stories about it on the road, people are getting tattoos of it. It’s a symbol of strength and resilience, and I think it’s perfect to extend into what we do for Miles & Music, especially when we are talking about the history of the event, the bikers and fans who come out every year to support it and most importantly, the children and their families being treated at Vandy. The Riser Bird Movement that started this week is a cool way to get the community involved in a deeper way and earlier this year. . . . It’s been fun to see it start to spread across town.”
