Dierks Bentley was recently honored by Nashville's Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt. 

The country superstar was the very first person to be honored with a star on the Vanderbilt Children's Walk of Champions.

The Vanderbilt University website states that the new addition was "designed to honor lifelong advocates for Children's Hospital within the entertainment industry."

According to CMT, Bentley "has raised approximately $4 million for the hospital through his Miles & Music for Kids motorcycle ride and benefit concert" throughout the years.

The 1997 Vanderbilt University graduate shined the light on the staff and patients while accepting his award in front of a crowd. Bentley thanked the "big team of all-stars" surrounding him prior to vising patients at the hospital with his daughter.

Yesterday was an exciting day at Children’s Hospital, as our longtime friend Dierks Bentley stopped by to receive the first star on our newly created Walk of Champions, presented by Live Nation, for his continued dedication to our patients and families. The Walk of Champions will be located on the main floor of the hospital and is designed to honor our supporters within the entertainment industry. After the ceremony, Dierks and his daughter Jordan visited with patients in Seacrest Studios. The celebration continued into the evening with the Center Stage Gala, an event that took place on the stage of Ascend Amphitheatre to recognize Dierks for his incredible partnership through the years. From all of us here at Children’s Hospital, thank you @dierksbentley for all you do! #seacreststudios #dierksbentley #livenation
