More artists will be announced in the coming weeks.
“This event has turned into one of the highlights of my year,” said Bentley. “I can’t think of a better way to spend an October day in Nashville than riding motorcycles in the afternoon and playing guitars and singing with some buddies at sundown. Everyone has been so supportive, and I’m really proud of the money we’ve been able to raise for Vanderbilt over the last few years.”
Registration for the ride will begin at 11:00am at Harley Davidson of Cool Springs before the ride departs at 2:00pm.
