Dierks Bentley raises over $440,000 for firefighters’ families (so far)


Last night, Dierks Bentley held his Country Cares Concert in Arizona with the hopes of raising wads of cash for the families of the 19 Hotshot firefighters who died in an Arizona wildfire last month. 

Well raise wads of cash he did. According to local radio station KMLE, who also helped raise money for the cause, the concert brought in an incredible $442,252.27, all of which goes directly to the families. There are other reports saying that that number is as high as $476,000, but I'll go with the lower number just to be safe.

Money is still being raised on Dierks' website so you can expect that number to definitely grow.  

"Country fans are the best, and when their friends need help, they show up," Dierks said on his website before the show. "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."
