DIERKS BENTLEY EARNS INSTANT SELLOUT FOR 10TH ANNIVERSARY "MILES & MUSIC FOR KIDS”

The Celebrity Motorcycle Ride and All-Star Concert Rolls Into Nashville Nov. 1

NASHVILLE, TN - August 21, 2015 - Within 30 minutes this morning, fans eagerly snatched every ticket to Multi-Platinum entertainer Dierks Bentley's 10th Annual "Miles & Music For Kids" celebrity motorcycle ride and concert. Kicking off CMA Awards week on Nov. 1 in Nashville, TN, the event will closeout the outdoor concert season at the new Ascend Amphitheater with a stellar concert lineup including Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett, Cole Swindell, The Cadillac Three, Canaan Smith, Brooke Eden and emcee Storme Warren. All proceeds benefit Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.

"I thought we would have a good turnout, but to sell out Ascend in minutes is crazy! It really speaks to the passion that country fans have for causes that are important to their community. I feel honored that 'Miles & Music' is one of them," shares Bentley. "Every year, the biker community has also been there for us, helping raise money for these kids...they are definitely some of the most giving people out there. So, we are holding back a few extra tickets to be sure anyone who wants to ride on Nov. 1 into downtown can jump on their bikes and join us. It’ll be pretty unreal to cruise into a sold-out amphitheater reminiscing about everyone who has helped make the last 10 years so huge - I can’t wait!”

Over the course of the event’s history, Bentley has raised more than $3 million dollars for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals across the country. Due to their ongoing support, advance purchase tickets have been held for riders and a very limited number will be available for walk up purchase at Harley-Davidson of Columbia on a first come, first served basis the day of the event. You must be a rider planning to participate in the ride, to purchase these tickets. For more information, visit:www.dierks.com.
