The second annual Dierks Bentley's Miles and Music for Kids will be held Sunday, Sept. 30, benefiting the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt.

The ride begins at 2 p.m. at Harley-Davidson of Cool Springs and will finish at the Loveless Café in West Nashville. After the ride, Little Big Town, Big Kenny of Big and Rich, Shooter Jennings, Jason Aldean, Ira Dean of Trick Pony and others will perform in the benefit concert.

Last year, more than 2,700 riders participated in the event which raised more than $100,000 for Children's Hospital.

“I was overwhelmed last year with the number of bikers who came out to help us kick this thing off,” Bentley said. “Children's Hospital really has touched so many people across our community,” Bentley said.

Registration for the ride begins at 11 a.m. Costs are $35 for the ride, concert and T-shirt or $20 for the concert only.
