by Scott Hanson

Dierks Bentley’s Country Cares Concert raised more than $476,000 for the families of the 19 firefighters who lost their lives in the recent Arizona wildfires.

The benefit included the debut of Dierks’s new song “Here on Earth,” which was set to a photo tribute honoring the victims. He kicked off the event with a special version of “Home” featuring a bagpipe intro by the Rural Metro Pipe and Drum Corps. Also on the bill were  The Band PerryDavid Nail and Randy Houser.

After the show, Dierks tweeted, “It’s 2:30 [a.m.] and yeah, I’ve been drinking. But I’ll say the same thing tomorrow as I’ve said in the past: @randyhouser is the best country singer.”
