Following ten successful years of fundraising, CAPITOL NASHVILLE artist DIERKS BENTLEY has decided to take a break from his annual "MILES & MUSIC FOR KIDS" celebrity motorcycle ride and all-star concert event. "I feel so incredible about what we've been able to accomplish together," BENTLEY shared with fans via FACEBOOK. "Four million dollars for children's hospitals...crazy! [I] couldn't have done it without y'all, all my artist friends, the bikers, and the NASHVILLE community that I'm so lucky to call home. I'm thinking and dreaming about what we might do next, and how we can all keep making a difference together. Stay tuned, and I'll see you on the road."
BENTLEY is sure to have another project in the works in short-order, as philanthropic endeavors have always been important in both his business and personal life. "Find something you're passionate about, whether it's dogs or hospitals, or planting a tree," BENTLEY told ALL ACCESS during his "9TH ANNUAL MILES & MUSIC FOR KIDS" event in 2014 (NET NEWS 9/29/14). "Everything makes a difference. It's a big world with a lot of problems, and it can be kind of overwhelming if you look at it from that big macro view. But if you just think about what one thing you can do, you can make some sort of a small difference."
