Dierks Bentley Gets Emotional Preparing for Firefighters Tribute Concert
“I have never cried as hard as just did watching the screen content for our show,” Dierks tweets.
Looks like the Dierks Bentley firefighters tribute concert Monday night (July 22) in Prescott in Dierks' home state of Arizona will be a powerful one.
i don't really cry. but i have never cried as hard as just did watching the screen content for our show in prescott AZ #yarnellfire— Dierks Bentley (@DierksBentley) July 21, 2013
Dierks followed that up with a moving reference to his father passing away last year.
when my dad died, i was holding his hand. i closed his eyes. the hardest i have ever cried. but monday, 19 dead firefighters, wives, kids...— Dierks Bentley (@DierksBentley) July 21, 2013
Dierks has picked The Band Perry, Randy Houser and David Nail to play with him on Monday's sold-out show. The proceeds will go to the United Phoenix Firefighters Charities.
