Dierks Bentley

Multi-Platinum entertainer Dierks Bentley has announced that his 10th Annual “Miles & Music For Kids celebrity motorcycle ride and concert, will kick off CMA Awards week on Sunday, Nov. 1 in Nashville, TN.  Over the course of the event’s history, Bentley has raised more than $3 million dollars for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals across the country. This year, he will be joined by an all-star concert lineup including Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett, Cole Swindell, The Cadillac Three, Canaan Smith, Brooke Eden and emcee Storme Warren.

“When I think about all the artists and riders and fans who have come out to support this event over the years, I get a little emotional…there is just no way for me to possibly say thank you enough,” shares Bentley. “We started out at the fairgrounds and then moved out to the Loveless Café and then it grew so big we took it to Riverfront Park.  And now we’ve got the new Ascend Amphitheater locked down for this year.  We are going to do everything possible to make No. 10 the best yet!”

The 10th Anniversary celebration will once again begin at the Harley Davidson of Columbia (1616 Harley Davidson Blvd., Columbia, TN) for an hour-long ride that will end downtown at Nashville’s new Ascend Amphitheater to close out their inaugural season. Following the ride, Bentley will take the stage for a family-friendly day of music with a lineup that will continue to grow as the event approaches.

Thomas Rhett Reveals ‘Tangled Up’ Details

Thomas Rhett

Thomas Rhett spent his childhood listening to the sounds of the FM radio. He would regularly flip from one station to another, cranking up a mix of country, pop, R&B, rap, rock, and oldies. It was a tangle of music. Decades later, he’s tipping his hat to those days with TANGLED UP (The Valory Music Co.) out Sept. 25, an album that mixes the sound of his influences with equal doses of groove, melody and twang.

“I didn’t grow up listening to just one style of music,” shares Thomas Rhett. “So, I don’t know how to write just one style of music. Whether these songs have more of a pop influence or more of a hip-hop influence or a completely country influence, they all — in some crazy way — cohesively sound like a me song.”

Produced by a combination of music’s most respected and fresh talent, the 13-track album is filled with party anthems, dance tunes, drinking songs, love ballads, and everything in between, all tied together by a dynamic singer who’s unafraid to blur the lines between genres. The record was written across the country before and after shows, while Thomas Rhett’s body was still flushed with adrenaline.

“At our shows, there aren’t any rules,” Thomas Rhett continues. “There’s no such thing as standing still and just singing a song. I love jumping into the crowd. I love to dance. The whole show is very uptempo, high energy, and completely unpredictable.”

Maybe that’s why Tangled Up feels like such an upbeat, energetic record. Its “retro, contemporary and edgy” (Billboard) first single “Crash And Burn” has already climbed into the Top 10 and earned GOLD certification long before the album’s release.

Thomas Rhett established himself as one of country music’s elite new artists with his debut album IT GOES LIKE THIS (The Valory Music Co.), which tallied three consecutive chart-topping hits, making him Billboard’s first male country artist in over 20 years to do so.

Thomas Rhett Goes Gold!

As it smokes up the Top 15 at Country Radio, Thomas Rhett’s “Crash And Burn” earns GOLD certification by the RIAA. The new track serves as the lead single from his upcoming sophomore release Tangled Up (The Valory Music Co.) out Sept. 25th.

“It seriously blows my mind to think half a million people have already bought ‘Crash,’” said Thomas Rhett. “Being out on the road with our fans all summer and getting to see them react to this song live has been incredible, and it’s making me even more excited to get new music in their hands.”

Thomas Rhett also celebrates Multi-PLATINUM (2X) RIAA single certification for “It Goes Like This,” which helped tally three chart-topping hits off his debut album, making him as the first male country artist in over 20 years to do so.
