DIERKS BENTLEY SELLS OUT THE COUNTRY CARES CONCERT TO BENEFIT THE FAMILIES OF THE GRANITE MOUNTAIN HOT SHOTS THIS MORNING AFTER FANS LOCK UP TICKETING SERVERS DUE TO DEMAND
 
Other Country Artists Join On To Help Bentley
Honor His Hometown Heroes And Their Families
 
Nashville,
TN – July 12, 2013 – Country Music fans locked up ticketing servers
this morning while racing to purchase tickets for the Country Cares Concert
to benefit The Granite Mountain Hot Shots, which officially sold out
over 6,000 tickets at Tim’s Toyota Center for the July 22 event in
Prescott Valley, AZ. The New KMLE Country @ 107.9 and 92.9 KAFF Country
organized the concert with headliner Dierks Bentley and after the sell
out this morning, special guests The Band Perry, Randy Houser and David
Nail joined on to help raise money for the families of the 19
firefighters who lost their lives in last week’s wildfires.
 
“Country
fans are the best, and when their friends need help, they show up,”
said Bentley. “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.”
 
“We
feel very blessed this concert sold out so quickly,” said KMLE Country @
107.9 Program Director Tim Richards. “Thanks 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.”
