Dierks Bentley once again opens his heart, and his wallet

Country megastar Dierks Bentley has long been known as one of the most generous artists around, so it was no surprise back in 2012 when he opened his wallet to a struggling military family appearing on “The Ellen Show.”

And he is about to show off that big heart again.

The ACM Award nominee will soon grab his Harley and serve as the host of the ACM Charity Motorcycle Ride & Concert on April 18 in Texas to raise money for ACM Lifting Lives, an organization that helps to support local child abuse advocacy groups and military charities. The specific charities that will benefit directly from this event include Children’s Advocacy Center for Denton County, Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, Bikers Against Child Abuse, and 444 Angel. The military philanthropies include Folds of Honor Foundation, Wounded Warrior Project, Navy SEAL Foundation, and Task Force Dagger Foundation.

“When you can ride motorcycles and help make money riding motorcycles…that’s such a win-win situation,” Bentley said in a recent interview.

Artists scheduled to perform at the end of the motorcycle run will include Montgomery Gentry, Thomson Square and Will Hoge.

Fans can register to ride and purchase general admission tickets beginning Friday, March 20 at 10AM PT / 12PM CT at for $75.
