CMT ONE COUNTRY and the CHILDREN's MIRACLE NETWORK has announced they will join forces with CAPITOL/NASHVILLE artist DIERKS BENTLEY to bring his annual "MILES & MUSIC FOR KIDS" fundraiser nationwide.
"MILES & MUSIC FOR KIDS" events will all take place in NASHVILLE, BENTLEY's hometown of PHOENIX, SEATTLE, ATLANTA, DALLAS and CHICAGO in 2009 and 2010, with all proceeds benefiting the CHILDREN's MIRACLE NETWORK hospitals in those areas.
This year's kickoff event will be held in NASHVILLE's RIVERFRONT PARK on SUNDAY, OCTOBER 11th and will once again benefit the MONROE CARELL JR. CHILDREN's HOSPITAL at VANDERBILT (a CHILDREN's MIRACLE NETWORK hospital).
"MILES & MUSIC" began in 2006 in NASHVILLE as a motorcycle ride and concert event benefiting CHILDREN's HOSPITAL at VANDERBILT. Since its inception, the event has raised more than half a million dollars.
The forthcoming "MILES & MUSIC" events will follow that same formula, with a motorcycle ride following a specific route in each city and ending at a concert venue, for a 2-3 hour show featuring BENTLEY and friends.
