Country Stars Raise $476,000 for Arizona Firefighters' Families

Rick Diamond/Getty Images(PRESCOTT, Ariz.) -- Dierks Bentley's Country Cares Concert raised more than $476,000 for the families of the 19 Granite Mountain Hot Shots firefighters who lost their lives in recent wildfires.

The Band Perry, Randy Houser and David Nail were also on the bill for the sold-out show Monday night in Prescott Valley, Ariz. Several of the firefighters' family members, as well as the sole surviving firefighter from the Hot Shots, were in the audience.

Dierks paid his respects to the firefighters with a photo tribute during his brand-new song, "Here on Earth." Arizona's Rural Metro Pipe and Drum Corps also offered a special bagpipe introduction to Dierks' performance of "Home."

All money raised at the concert will go to the United Phoenix Firefighters Charities for distribution directly to the affected families.
