Dierks Bentley revealed the details on his annual “Miles & Music For Kids” charity event this week. The event will take place Sunday October 11 in Nashville, TN.

The hour-long ride will weave through beautiful Williamson County and end at Riverfront Park in downtown Nashville with a concert featuring Bentley and special guests including his label-mates Darius Rucker and Eric Church. More artists will be announced in the coming weeks.

“This has always been a pretty special deal, and then last year my daughter was born at Vanderbilt the same day as our event and that really put things in perspective for me,” says Bentley. “It’s cool that guys like Darius and Eric are willing to come out and help us raise some money, so that our community can continue to benefit from the hospital’s services.”

Tickets for the event go on sale this Friday, August 15 through Ticketmaster. Tickets for the ride, concert and commemorative T-shirt are $50, or those looking to attend the concert only can purchase tickets for $20. Special VIP packages are also available.

“Miles & Music For Kids” is sponsored by Nationwide Insurance. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. In the past three years, “Miles & Music for Kids” has raised more than $500,000 for Children’s Hospital.
