Dierks Bentley Sells Out Country Cares Concert Benefit for Fallen Firefighters
22 July 2013 news
Dierks Bentleyâ€™s Country Cares Concert, benefiting The Granite Mountain Hot Shots, is officially sold out. Set for July 22 in Prescott Valley, Arizona, the event will raise funds for the families of the 19 firefighters who recently lost their lives battling wildfires. The Band Perry, Randy Houser and David Nail have joined the lineup following the sell out. â€œCountry fans are the best, and when their friends need help, they show up,â€ Dierks said. â€œThis is my hometown, and I feel a huge pull to go back and be there with them and do what I can to help. Iâ€™ve had some friends speak up and say they wanted to come help, so weâ€™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.â€ â€œWe feel very blessed this concert sold out so quickly,â€ KMLE Country 107.9 Program Director Tim Richards said. â€œThanks to these artists for putting together such an amazing event in such a short amount of time. We hope families of the firefighters know how much the Arizona community cares about them.â€ Fans who would like to help but are unable to attend the Country Cares Concert can make a direct donation here. All proceeds from the concert will go to the United Phoenix Firefighters Charities who will distribute directly to the families of the 19 fallen firefighters.
