When Dierks Bentley’s seventh annual “Miles & Music for Kids” celebrity motorcycle ride and concert in Nashville was postponed for inclement weather this past Sunday (10/14), Bentley responded by playing an impromptu set for fans at the Hard Rock Café.
High winds and storm warnings forced organizers to postpone the ride and move the performance indoors. Participant Sheryl Crow stuck around to make a guest appearance at Hard Rock with Bentley.
“It was a tough call, but we had to make it for everyone’s safety,” said Bentley. “But, we still had so many fans in town who traveled, sometimes hundreds of miles to help support Vandy’s Children’s Hospital, I felt like we had to find a way to do something to thank them for their time and donations over the past seven years.”
The full event was scheduled to take place on the Riverfront Lawn event space. It has not yet been rescheduled.
Since first hitting the pavement in 2006, 12 “Miles & Music” events have been hosted in seven cities, raising over $2 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the country.
