Country music star Dierks Bentley raised $50,000 for charity at a rain-soaked biker rally show in Seattle, Washington on Saturday.
The 34 year old battled through torrential rain to perform at the Miles & Music for Kids motorcycle ride and concert, which was staged to raise funds for Seattle Children’s Hospital.

He says, “Rainy days aren’t typically when most people are itching to get out the motorcycle for a leisurely afternoon ride. We’ve come to learn over the last few years of putting these rides on that motorcycle riders may look big and bad, but they have a heart of gold, and it would take a lot more than a little rain to deter them.”
