Dierks Bentley Makes Every Mile a Memory

Dierks Bentley’s 10th Annual Miles & Music for Kids took place yesterday in Nashville, Tennessee. The forty mile bike ride culminated in a concert of epic proportions, featuring Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett, Cole Swindell, The Cadillac Three, Canaan Smith and Brooke Eden.

While the entertainment was unprecedented at Dierks’ anniversary ride, it was in the fundraising aspect that the event made historical strides. The 2015 Miles & Music event raised a record $636,479 for Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, bringing the ten year total to over four million dollars. Dierks shared his excitement about the success of the event:

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.

And a really big thanks to Dierks and the rest of the country artists who made this a record-breaking and setting event. Here’s to next year being even more successful!
