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.

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.
