Dierks Bentley’s Riser Bird symbol invaded Nashville this week to help announce his 9th annual “Miles & Music for Kids,” a celebrity motorcycle ride and all-star concert. Set for September 28 in Nashville, Kip Moore, Chris Young, Randy Houser and Jon Pardi will take part in the event which has raised over $2.5 million to date for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the country. All proceeds will benefit Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.
“The Riser Bird symbol we’ve been using to represent this album has really come to mean something to my fans,” Bentley said. “I’ve been hearing stories about it on the road. People are getting tattoos of it. It’s a symbol of strength and resilience, and I think it’s perfect to extend into what we do for Miles & Music, especially when we are talking about the history of the event, the bikers and fans who come out every year to support it and most importantly, the children and their families being treated at Vandy. [The] Riser Bird Movement that started this week is a cool way to get the community involved in a deeper way…. It’s been fun to see it start to spread across town.”
The event will start at Harley Davidson of Columbia for an hour-long ride that ends in downtown Nashville’s Riverfront Park. Following the motorcycle ride, Bentley and his guest stars will perform for the remainder of the day.
