TN - Nov. 2, 2015 - CMA “Male Vocalist of the Year” nominee Dierks
Bentley celebrated the 10th Anniversary of his Annual Miles & Music For Kidslast
night with a record breaking total of $636,479 raised for Monroe Carell
Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, marking the event’s biggest
donation and almost $4 million raised for the cause to date. Kicking off
CMA Awards week in full swing, thousands of bikers rode into downtown
Nashville where Bentley was joined by an all-star concert lineup
including Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett, Cole Swindell, The
Cadillac Three, Canaan Smith, Brooke Eden and emcee Storme Warren at the
post-ride sold-out event held at Ascend Amphitheater.
"You always want to make each year
different and raise more money especially with it being the 10th
anniversary," said Bentley. "We had a killer lineup and moved over to
the new Ascend Amphitheater, but I was completely shocked to see that
first number when they flipped over the check - a six! Really big thanks
to all the fans and friends who helped make it such a huge night."
Bentley will continue the week gearing up for his performance at the upcoming 49th Annual CMA Awards
airing live on Wednesday (11/4) at 8pm ET on ABC, where he is also
nominated for “Male Vocalist of the Year.” For more information, visit www.dierks.com.
