MOORESVILLE, NC (February 6, 2009) -- Kasey Kahne, driver of the #9 Budweiser Dodge in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and Dierks Bentley, multi-platinum country music star, have teamed up to present "Sound Check 9" music concert on March 5 in Duluth, Georgia to benefit the Kasey Kahne Foundation.

"I've been friends with Dierks for a while now and I'm excited that we are putting together an event to benefit charity," said Kahne, a nine-time winner on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. "Dierks has been a long-time supporter of children's charities, which is also the focus of the Kasey Kahne Foundation. So teaming up on this concert is a good fit."

Tickets go on sale, February 6, at 10:00 am ET for $27 advance general admission and $50 reserved seating. A special offering of one-hundred VIP Meet & Greet tickets with reserved seating are available for $150 per person.

The show takes place at Wild Bill's in Duluth, Georgia, which is approximately 23 miles northeast of downtown Atlanta. Wild Bill's is regarded as one of the best and largest country music and dancing venues in the country. The evening kicks off with a question and answer session with Kahne and other NASCAR drivers (TBD). Bentley, will perform afterwards.

Bentley is currently heating things up with the February 3rd release of his fourth studio album FEEL THAT FIRE (Capitol Nashville). After spending two years writing, road testing and recording the new material, the first time co-producer is busy promoting the 12 track disc with an eclectic mix of television appearances, customized radio and online promotions and market visits across the country.

"Atlanta has great NASCAR fans, country music fans and people that want to give back to charity," Kahne added. "The Kasey Kahne Foundation is a big supporter of the Ronald McDonald House, Make-A-Wish and other children's organizations. Every year we hold several large events to raise funds and this year we are lucky to have Dierks helping us. He always puts on a great show."
