Dierks Bentley might not yet have a release date for his new album, but that doesn’t mean he’s not in demand. He sold out his Chicago date for his Miles & Music For Kids benefit two weeks in advance of the October 9th date. It’s the fastest sell-out in the six year history of the event. All proceeds will go towards Chicago’s Children’s Memorial Hospital. Artists slated to attend include the Eli Young Band, Jerrod Niemann, Tyler Reeve, and Matt Mason. US99′s Lisa Dent will serve as this year’s emcee at the Chicago benefit concert.
“It’s further proof that country music fans and bikers have the biggest hearts out there,” said Bentley. “It’s always fun taking this event into new cities and raising money for the local hospitals. We are looking forward to a big day in Chicago!”
Throughout the event’s six-year history, Dierks has raised over $1.6 million for children’s hospitals across the United States in cities like Nashville, Phoenix, Dallas/Fort Worth, Atlanta, Seattle and Columbus. Tickets are still available for the Nashville chapter of the event this year. Sponsors of this year’s events include Nationwide Insurance and CMT One Country.
