Singer to fire up Children’s Hospital benefit

Country music artist Dierks Bentley is kickstarting an effort to raise funds for the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt.

The singer organized the Dierks Bentley Miles and Music for Kids Ride to support the hospital through his love of Harley Davidson motorcycles and music.

The rally and motorcycle ride is set for Sunday, Oct. 8, and will end with a benefit concert at the state fairgrounds.

Here is the schedule:

Noon to 2 p.m. — Pre-ride Titans Tailgate Party and rider registration at the Harley-Davidson of Cool Spring motorcycle dealership at 7128 South Springs Drive in Franklin. Ride and concert packages begin at $35.

3 p.m. — The ride leaves Franklin from the dealership and makes its way through Nashville to the Tennessee State Fairgrounds.

4 p.m. — The rally ends at the fairgrounds' Music City Motorplex with a concert featuring performances from Bentley and comedian Jeff Foxworthy, plus special appearances by Montgomery Gentry, Eric Church, Randy Rogers Band and more.

Tickets are $20 for the concert and can be purchased through Ticketmaster.
