DIERKS AND FRIENDS RALLY TO SUPPORT THE 19 FAMILIES OF THE GRANITE MOUNTAIN HOT SHOTS AT COUNTRY CARES CONCERT
Dierks led the charge to raise over $476,000 for the sold out Country Cares Concert last night (7/22/13) in Prescott Valley, AZ to benefit the families of the Granite Mountain Hot Shots who lost their lives in recent wildfires, along with the help of The New KMLE Country @ 107.9, 92.9 KAFF Country and friends The Band Perry, Randy Houser and David Nail….and country music fans!
Family members of the 19 firefighters and the sole surviving firefighter were in attendance at the event in an emotional yet celebratory night of music. Dierks honored the fallen firefighters with a photo tribute during his first-ever performance of brand new song "Here On Earth" and kicked off a special version of "Home" with a bagpipe intro by the Rural Metro Pipe and Drum Corp.
All money raised from the event will go to the United Phoenix Firefighters Charities who will directly distribute to the families of the 19 fallen firefighters.
