Humble Dierks: “I’m . . . the Bartender”

Dierks Bentley will host his fifth Miles & Music for Kids charity motorcycle ride in Nashville Sunday (Oct. 17).

These rides have grown to four cities over those five years, and the rides/concerts have raised more than $1.2 million for children’s hospitals. A great accomplishment, but Dierks has an aw-shucks attitude about the whole thing.

“I don’t take a lot of pride in it for me personally,” Dierks tells The Tennessean newspaper in Nashville.

“I take a lot of pride in it for the fans and the motorcycle enthusiasts because they are the ones raising the money. I know it’s a dumb analogy, but I’m kind of like the bartender. I just buy the alcohol and stock the bar.”
