HUGE thanks to all the fans, riders, sponsors & artists who always come out to support us & Vandy Childrens Hospital."

In a series of posts on his Twitter.com page, he adds, "Can't tell you all how disappointed I am and my team is about today (sic). We have been looking forward to this day for a year. Our fans came a long way to get here, and spent money to do so. and wanted to raise money for vanderbilt childrens hospital. thank you guys."

Sheryl Crow, Chris Young and Brantley Gilbert were among the acts set to perform at the special gig.
