Dierks Bentley & Friends Rally to Raise $476K!

Country fans flooded Tim's Toyota Center in Prescott Valley, AZ tonight for the Country Cares Concert to benefit the families of the Granite Mountain Hot Shots who lost their lives in recent wildfires.  With just over a week to organize the event, Arizona native Dierks Bentley led the charge to raise over $476,000 with the help of The New KMLE Country @ 107.9, 92.9 KAFF Country and artist friends The Band Perry, Randy Houser and David Nail.

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.

All 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.  For more information, visit www.dierks.com.
