Dierks Bentley’s 8th Annual “Miles & Music For Kids” brought in its biggest crowd to date in Nashville on Sunday. Thousands of bikers road into downtown where Dierks, Luke Bryan, Jake Owen, Easton Corbin, Brett Eldredge and Chase Rice performed an all-star concert hosted by Storme Warren. The event raised $307,000 for Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, its biggest donation to date.

“Every year, the support from the fans for these events catches me off-guard,” Dierks said. “I shouldn’t be surprised because the country music community is the first to open their wallets to help out, but this year they were lined up before the sun was even up. I have my buddies Luke Bryan, Jake Owen, Easton Corbin, Brett Eldredge, Chase Rice and Storme Warren to thank for spending their Sunday afternoon with us and making it the best year yet!”

The celebrity motorcycle ride and concert has visited seven cities across the country. Over its eight-year history, the event has raised more than $2.5 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the country.
