Not only did country superstar Dierks Bentley become a dad for the first time last weekend, he also led a group of celebrities on a motorcycle rally to raise money for the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt.
The 32-year-old singer raised over $275,000 for the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt during his third annual Music & Miles for Kids celebrity motorcycle ride and concert on Sunday, just a day after his wife, Cassidy, gave birth to their baby daughter.
Bentley was joined by fans and motorcycle enthusiasts on the rally, which went from Vanderbilt to downtown Nashville and culminated in a concert featuring Tim McGraw and John Rich. Also performing at the concert – a huge surprise for the crowd of 5000 – was NASCAR driver Kyle Petty, who organizes an annual charity motorbike ride of his own.
Bentley is now looking forward to spending some time with his new family and hopes to organize an even bigger charity event next year.
