The Miles and Music for Kids is a charity motorcycle ride and concert event started by Dierks Bentley to benefit the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt (a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital).

The event is a one hour motorcycle ride that starts at the Harley-Davidson of Columbia in Columbia, Tennessee and finishes at Nashville’s Riverfront Park downtown. Then Dierks and his friends (Chris Young, Cheryl Crow, Brantley Gilbert and more) take the main stage and celebrate with a concert. A list of new acts and surprises will continue to grow and be announced as they are added.

Fans can participate in the ride, enjoy the concert and get a T-shirt for just $50 or you can just enjoy the concert for $20. There are also a few VIP packages that include some extras!

Over the last 6 years Dierks and his friends have raised over $2 million dollars for the Children's Miracle Network charity and he hopes this year will be bigger and better.

Tickets for this benefit go on sale this Friday (Aug. 17) starting at 10 am through Ticketmaster.
