Arizona native Dierks Bentley will make a special trip to his home state
this month to headline the Country Cares Concert,
benefiting The Granite Mountain Hotshots on July 22 at Tim’s Toyota

of the 19 firefighters who lost their lives in last week’s wildfires.

“I
want to help honor the memory of these 19 brave firefighters, to be
part of the healing process for the community and to raise money for the
families left behind,” said Bentley. “I was and still am devastated by
this tragic event in my home state. I certainly can’t imagine what these
families are enduring, but I do believe in the healing power of music
and hope as many Arizonans as possible can come out and be part of this
event.”
 
“We
hope this benefit concert gives everyone affected by this tragedy the
opportunity to come together and heal,” said KMLE Country @ 107.9
Program Director Tim Richards.  “We want to raise as much money as
possible to help the families of these amazing heroes.”
 
Fans
and community members will have the chance to purchase tickets to the
concert and special VIP packages with all proceeds going to the United
Phoenix Firefighters Charities who will distribute directly to the
families of the 19 fallen firefighters. Fifty-one children were left
without fathers in the wake of this tragedy.

native Dierks Bentley has forged his own artistic path in an industry
built predominantly on formula. He has mixed elements of modern country,
classic country, bluegrass and rock, maintaining an unmistakable
identity while constantly reinventing his sound. His album HOME debuted
at No. 1 and spawned three consecutive chart-topping hits, marking 10
career No. 1 songs for Bentley as a singer and songwriter. His five
previous studio albums have sold more than five million copies, garnered
11 GRAMMY nominations and earned him an invitation to join the Grand
Ole Opry. Bentley is currently in the studio working on his upcoming
album RISER due out this fall and will pick back up later this month on
the Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley: Locked & Reloaded Tour
through October.
