Dierks Bentley to Perform Benefit Concert for Fallen Arizona Firefighters

Greenroom PRArizona native Dierks Bentley will return to his home state this month to headline a benefit concert for the families of the 19 fallen firefighters from the Granite Mountain Hotshots. The Country Cares Concert will take place July 22 at Tim's Toyota Center in Prescott Valley, AZ.  All proceeds will go to the United Phoenix Firefighters Charities for direct distribution to the families.  

The fallen firefighters left behind 51 children. Dierks looks forward to honoring the memory of these brave members of the Prescott Fire Department.

He says, "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.”  

Tickets for the concert go on sale this Friday, and more stars will be added to the lineup. Go to for more information.
