“I’m still coming down from the high of such an unbelievable last run of shows on the summer leg of this tour,” said Bentley. “The fans in Cincy, Cleveland and Indianapolis were ready to close out their summer in a big way. Then we got back to Nashville, and I was totally blown away by the outpouring of support we got for this year’s ‘Miles & Music.’ This little event we started nine years ago has taken on a life of its own. I feel like I’m just a small part of this thing. It has really become about country music fans and bikers coming together to help our community and those kids. It’s incredible.”

Joining Dierks in the cause were tourmates Jon Pardi and Chris Young.  Kip Moore and Randy Houser also made appearances to entertain the massive crowd.  The weather couldn’t have been more perfect, and the crowd was loud, singing along with all the hits from the artists including “Beer Money,” “Boots On,” “Awe Naw,” and of course all of Dierks’ hits.

The Royal Sessions, as well as seven-time Grammy Award Winner, and six-time CMA Award winner, Lady Antebellum, with new music from their highly anticipated upcoming album 747.

Country superstar Dierks Bentley said,

“The core of Country Music is its songs, and the CMA established the CMA Songwriters Series 10 years ago to recognize a really important part of our genre, the songwriters. We don’t typically take the time to thank the songwriters, so collaborating with the CMA and Front and Center was the perfect place — a night with five guys on stools sharing stories, songs and whiskey.”
