During the big Academy of Country Music Awards weekend in D-FW, country star Dierks Bentley hosted a charity motorcycle ride and concert. The ride kicked off in two locations -- Strokers Dallas and Longhorn Harley-Davidson in Grand Prairie -- and finished up at Maverick Harley-Davidson in Carrollton, with a concert featuring performances by Bentley, Lee Brice, Clare Dunn, Joey Hyde and more. 

The event benefited the ACM Lifting Lives charities, Folds of Honor Foundation, Wounded Warrior Project, and other local military and child abuse advocacy groups.
