"It's something I look forward to every year - watching it grow and attract new people each time and raise more money for the ACM Charitable Fund. The fund is unbelievable with what all they have been able to do, and I'm happy to be a part of it."
The ride started with about 100 bikes and now has more than 1,500. The fund promotes and supports music education and humanitarian programs.
The 42nd annual ACM ceremony will be held May 15.
