Country star Dierks Bentley gave more than a musical tribute to the families of 19 firemen who died in Arizona last month – he helped raise nearly a half-million dollars.
Monday night, the Phoenix native hosted the Country Cares Concert in Prescott Valley, Ariz., joining Randy Houser, The Band Perry and David Nail.
The evening included a special version of Bentley's song "Home" with a bagpipe intro by the Rural Metro Pipe and Drum Corp., as well as a photo tribute to the Granite Mountain Hotshots.

Dierks Bentley might have a packed summer schedule and a hectic home life as he and wife Cassidy prepare for the birth of their third child – a boy this fall – but he's still making time for a very worthy cause.
When the country star learned that 51 children were left fatherless following the devastating Arizona wildfire that killed 19 elite firefighters on June 30, the Phoenix native knew he wanted to help.
With his only day off for the rest of July, Bentley, 37, is hosting the July 22 "Country Cares Concert" in Prescott Valley, Ariz., to raise money for the fallen families affected by the deadliest firefighter loss since the Sept. 11 World Trade Center attacks.

Country's finest are showing off a little skin – and a lot of charm.
"I hate looking at pictures of myself!" Tim McGraw insists. But one glimpse at the 46-year-old singer's ripped abs, which are featured in the new Hot Guys issue of PEOPLE Country, and we'll respectfully disagree.
Equally compelling eye candy? Fellow country stars Jake Owen, 31, and Kip Moore, 33, who also go shirtless in the new issue. But, as Owen explains, that buff beauty is more than skin deep.

Earl Scruggs, the banjo playing, singing and composing great whose twanging bluegrass themes for TV's The Beverly Hillbillies and the Bonnie and Clyde movie achieved Top of the Chart status in the '60s, died Wednesday of natural causes at a Nashville hospital, his son Gary Scruggs told CNN. He was 88.
"It's not just bluegrass, it's American music," bluegrass fan-turned-country star Dierks Bentley told the Associated Press about Scruggs's output.
"There's 17- or 18-year-old kids turning on today's country music and hearing that banjo and they have no idea where that came from. That sound has probably always been there for them and they don't realize someone invented that three-finger roll style of playing. You hear it everywhere."
