    Country star Dierks Bentley will host a benefit concert for the 19 firefighters who lost their lives battling a blaze in his native Arizona in June.

    The emergency workers were part of an elite team of firefighters known as the "Granite Mountain Hotshots." They succumbed to flames while trying to contain a major fire.

    The singer will headline the Country Cares Concert in Prescott Valley on July 22. The goal is to raise funds for the victims' families.

    Bentley, who is expecting his third child, a son, with his wife, issued the following statement: "I want to help honor the memory of these 19 brave firefighters, to be part of the healing process for the community and to raise money for the families left behind. I was and still am devastated by this tragic event in my home state. I certainly can't imagine what these families are enduring, but I do believe in the healing power of music and hope as many Arizonans as possible can come out and be part of this event."
