Dierks Bentley Helps Raise Over $476K For Firefighter's Families

07/23/2013
.
The Dierks Bentley headlined Country Cares Concert in Arizona raised over $476,000 last night (July 22nd) to benefit the families of the Granite Mountain Hot Shots who lost their lives in recent wildfires.

The concert took place at Tim's Toyota Center in Prescott Valley, AZ and aside from Bentley's headline set, it featured performances from The Band Perry, Randy Houser and David Nail.

"Country fans are the best, and when their friends need help, they show up," said Dierks on Monday ahead of the show. "This is my hometown, and I feel a huge pull to go back and be there with them and do what I can to help. I've had some friends speak up and say they wanted to come help, so we're going to put together a special night of music, raise some money and hopefully leave these families and this community with some positive memories."

The benefit concert was organized by local radio station's The New KMLE Country @ 107.9, 92.9 KAFF Country and all of the money raised from the event will go to the United Phoenix Firefighters Charities who will directly distribute to the families of the 19 fallen firefighters, according to an announcement from Bentley's camp.

They sent over these details about the show: Family members of the 19 firefighters and the sole surviving firefighter were in attendance at the event in an emotional yet celebratory night of music. Bentley honored the fallen firefighters with a photo tribute during his first-ever performance of brand new song "Here On Earth" and kicked off a special version of "Home" with a bagpipe intro by the Rural Metro Pipe and Drum Corp.

For fans wishing to help by contributing to the fund, Bentley has details on how to donate here.
