Dierks Bentley held his 10th annual Miles & Music charity motorcycle ride and concert over the weekend!
According to PEOPLE, the country star held the charity event on Sunday, raising $636,479 for Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. The concert itself featured performances by Florida Georgia Line,Thomas Rhett, and Cole Swindell. The event allowed for families of patients at Vanderbilt to come together for a good day of fun.
“I get a lot of questions like, ‘Is this the year you’ll win a CMA?’ ‘Don’t you want to win?’ And of course I want to win. I’d give the craziest, greatest acceptance speech of all time. I’d lose my head, I’d go crazy on stage, I’d be so happy,” Dierks said in an interview with PEOPLE. “But something about this event puts it in perspective. During the whole ride, I just think about how blessed I am.”
Alongside Dierks were his three kids, Evie, 7, Jordan, 4½, and Knox, 2, as he took the time to greet families of patients at Vanderbilt. “It’s important to try to instill in them the importance of doing good,” the singer said. “They see me on the road a lot and see that I make a living and then some, but I think they take pride in my doing this. They can see how music can be helpful and change lives.”
It’s great that Dierks continues to host this event every year, and even better that he brings his kids to teach them the value in giving back!
