Dierks Bentley

Late last week, Dierks Bentley was presented with an award from Nashville’s Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt – the first star on its brand new Walk of Champions.
 
Addressing the crowd, Bentley said, “I am personally so honoured to have this star…I feel like everyone that knows the situation knows I’m not the star. It’s really the doctors and the technicians, the administrators, the nurses.”
 
Continuing, Bentley said, “You guys are the stars. You are the ones that make this place what it is, the shining star on the hill. I am very honoured to have this.”
 
Through his Miles & Music for Kids motorcycle ride and benefit concert, Dierks has raised approximately $4 million for the hospital – most of which helped fund the hospital’s expansion which brought its bed count to more than 400.
 
“It’s not just one star, it’s all-stars, and I feel like it’s been a big team of all-stars that have made this happen,” Dierks added. “We continue to spread the message of giving back to the community — that we all do spread — and to support this hospital and continue to try and celebrate those that do.”
