To reference Dierks himself, (and considering the amount of NFL draft activity converging upon Music City) you might have to "climb like hell through the brush and the bramble" to see his free outside stage show in downtown Nashville this weekend. But hey, if you're true a Dierks Bentley devotee we know you're a riser. This year marks the 20th for the "Rock N' Roll Marathon" (formerly Country Music Marathon, we might add) to raise funds for St. Jude and it's showing no signs of backing down. This year there will even be dogs dashing around! For more information visit www.RunRocknRoll.com.
