DIERKS BENTLEY'S "MILES & MUSIC FOR KIDS" RAISES RECORD-BREAKING $307,000 FOR MONROE CARELL JR. CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL AT VANDERBILT

Event Tallies Eight-Year Total of Over $2.5 Million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Across the Country

NASHVILLE, TN - Nov. 4, 2013 – Award-winning singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley's "Miles & Music For Kids" hosted its biggest crowd to date yesterday in Nashville, TN.  Thousands of bikers road into downtown where fans joined Bentley for the post-ride concert to help make the event's biggest donation to date of over $307,000 to Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt.

"Every year, the support from the fans for these events catches me off-guard," said Bentley. "I shouldn't be surprised because the country music community is the first to open their wallets to help out, but this year they were lined up before the sun was even up. I have my buddies  Luke Bryan, Jake Owen, Easton Corbin, Brett Eldredge, Chase Rice and Storme Warren to thank for spending their Sunday afternoon with us and making it the best year yet!"

The celebrity motorcycle ride and concert has visited seven cities across the US, and over the event's eight-year history has raised more than $2.5 million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals across the country.
