After first joining forces in 2009, CMT ONE COUNTRY and CAPITOL RECORDS/NASHVILLE artist DIERKS BENTLEY are once again pairing with CHILDREN’S MIRACLE NETWORK HOSPITALS to bring his annual “Miles & Music For Kids” fundraiser nationwide. With five past events together and three planned in 2011, “Miles & Music For Kids” heads to COLUMBUS, OH on SUNDAY (5/22) with JOE NICHOLS, UNCLE KRACKER, JOSH THOMPSON and MISS WILLIE BROWN. CMT’s ADAM BLACK will emcee.
Events in CHICAGO and NASHVILLE will be held later this year with proceeds being donated to the CHILDREN’S MIRACLE NETWORK HOSPITAL in each area. Since 2006, “Miles & Music For Kids” has raised more than $1.5 million. As part of CMT’s involvement, “Miles & Music For Kids” and CHILDREN’S MIRACLE NETWORK HOSPITALS will be promoted on all of its media channels – on-air, online at CMTONECOUNTRY.com and CMT.com and via radio. CMT talent will be on-site at each event to serve as emcee.
Each “Miles & Music For Kids” fundraiser event begins with a motorcycle ride that starts at a local HARLEY dealership and continues through city landmarks before ending at a local venue for a concert. Over the past five years, BENTLEY has had the help of over 6,000 bikers and 30,000 fans in five different cities come out to support the cause.
