The 8th Annual Dierks Bentley’s “Miles and Music for Kids” event was held on Sunday, Nov. 3, and raised a record $307,000 to support the Dierks Bentley Miles and Music Foundation for Pediatric Palliative Care Fund at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.

The celebrity motorcycle ride began at the Harley Davidson dealership in Columbia, Tenn., and ended at Riverfront Park with a special concert featuring performances by Chase Rice, Tyler Reeve, Jake Owen, Easton Corbin, Brett Eldridge, Luke Bryan and Bentley. Storme Warren served as emcee.

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