Dierks Bentley and Miranda Lambert have a lot to do together over the next few months.
First, the two will take the stage for the fifth annual celebrity motorcycle ride all for charity, which takes place October 17. That’s right, Capitol’s multi-platinum country music star, Dierks Bentley, will host Miles & Music For Kids, that kicks off at Harley-Davidson of Columbia (TN) and ends with a Riverfront Park concert by Bentley, our adopted Oklahoman and award-winning artist, Miranda Lambert; newcomer, Jerrod Niemann, who is celebrating his first gold album in digital sales, with Judge Jerrod and the Hung Jury; along with many other artists that will be announced in the upcoming month.
All proceeds will benefit the Monroe Carell, Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.
In the short five years the charity has taken place, over 30,000 fans have gotten involved, and the charity has raised $1.2 million for children’s hospitals in Nashville, Phoenix, Dallas-Fort Worth and Atlanta.
Dierks talks about the charity on the his official website, “Miles and Music is one of the greatest things we do all year,” says Bentley. “The Nashville community has been coming out year after year to support us…Crazy to think we’ve been doing it for five years now. So many people contribute their time and money to make this a success…Looking forward to making year #5 bigger and better than ever.”
Bentley’s latest single, ‘Draw Me a Map,’ just hit country radio, and is climbing the charts.
As for Miranda Lambert, the young lady has a busy schedule, along with her latest release to radio, “Only Prettier.” This Friday, August 20, Lambert opens up at the Ford Center in Oklahoma City for Brooks & Dunn, as part of the duo’s last concert ever in Oklahoma. I will have full coverage of the concert with a slide show early Saturday morning, right here on Examiner. Check back!
