Bentley rides on for Miracle

Friday, March 11, 2011 – Dierks Bentley announced today that he will once again take his Miles and Music for Kids charity motorcycle ride and concert on the road in 2011, starting in Columbus, Ohio on May 22.

After a 90-minute ride, a concert will be held with Bentley, Joe Nichols, Josh Thompson, Uncle Kracker and Miss Willie Brown.

In five years, Bentley has raised more than $1.5 million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and plans to donate this event's proceeds to Columbus' Nationwide Children's Hospital.

"I've been waiting for the next Miles and Music and some warm weather to get my bike out," said Bentley. "Really looking forward to spending time in Nationwide's hometown of Columbus...they do such great things for their community and have been great supporters of our events over the years...excited to have some friends come along and help us raise some money for the kids in Columbus."

Tickets for the event go on sale March 18 through Ticketmaster. Fans can purchase a ride and concert ticket for $40 or a general admission concert ticket for $20.

CD review - Riser Change was in store for Dierks Bentley when it came to recording his seventh album, "Riser." On the personal front, he lost his father and added to his family, clearly affecting the subject matter of his latest. On the musical front, he traded long-time producer Brett Beavers, producer of every disc except "Up on the Ridge," for Ross Copperman, who has enjoyed more success as a writer, including several previous tracks for Bentley.
