    Dierks Bentley, Tour Mates Volunteer at Second Harvest Before Mountain High Tour

    Just days before the start of his 2018 Mountain High Tour, Dierks Bentley did some good in Nashville. 

    The country singer, LANCO, their crew and band volunteered their time at Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. Together they helped launch the “Hunger Free Summer” campaign. There they packed over 10,000 pounds of food to supply more than 8,600 meals to families in need during the summer months.

    “Typically when a tour is about to launch, you get your band and crew together for some drinks before the run, but I wanted to make sure we did something different this year,” he says. “We got everyone together to really start off with what it’s all about for me right now…gratitude. The more we get to do and grow out there on the road, the more I want to make it all mean something and Second Harvest is doing great work to make a difference in our community.”

    Bentley’s tour begins this Friday in Maryland. He has a jam-packed schedule but will make his way to Nashville on June 7. Coincidentally, that’s just one day before the release of his highly-anticipated album, The Mountain. He reached a new creative high on this album, writing 10 of the 13 tracks. See a preview of that record here.

    Stay tuned for more Bentley news as the album gets closer and, while you wait, consider getting a group of friends or coworkers together to volunteer. Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee has been working to feed hungry people while finding innovative ways to solve hunger issues right here in our community for 40 years. They’re doing amazing work and always need extra hands on deck. Find out more on their official website about how you can volunteer, donate food or even donate monthly (if you are able).
