DIERKS BENTLEY OFFERS A FREE DOWNLOAD OF “BEAUTIFUL WORLD” EXCLUSIVELY ON CMT.COM BEGINNING MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 28
Song Featuring Patty Griffin Available For Download in Honor of His Partnership with CMT ONE COUNTRY
NASHVILLE – September 28, 2009 – In celebration of his partnership with CMT ONE COUNTRY, multi-platinum recording singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley is offering a free download of the inspirational “Beautiful World” featuring Patty Griffin on CMT.com beginning today. Bentley is offering this free download to fans to raise awareness about his nationwide “Miles & Music For Kids” fundraiser, which is sponsored by CMT ONE COUNTRY and benefits local hospitals in the Children’s Miracle Network.
”This is definitely one of my favorite songs, not just from the last album, but probably that I’ve ever written and recorded,” explains Bentley. “The whole premise is that if you watch the news or read the headlines, there is a lot of really negative stuff happening out there that can pull you down, but if you choose to follow the good and believe in something better, then it is a ‘Beautiful World.’”
The free download of Bentley’s “Beautiful World” is available here:
Bentley’s “Miles & Music For Kids” fundraiser is expanding to six markets, with events taking place in Nashville, Tenn.; Bentley’s hometown of Phoenix, Ariz.; Seattle, Wa.; Atlanta, Ga.; Dallas, Texas and Chicago, Ill. in 2009 and 2010; all proceeds from these events will benefit Children’s Miracle Network hospitals in those areas. This year’s kick off event will be held at Nashville’s Riverfront Park on Sunday, October 11 and will feature performances by Bentley and Capitol Nashville label-mates Darius Rucker and Eric Church along with Wynonna, Heidi Newfield and Michelle Branch. The Nashville event will once again benefit the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, a Children's Miracle Network hospital.
