What happened October 1, 2017 at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas shook up a lot of country music stars, including Dierks Bentley. Bentley wanted to help the victims of the mass shooting. He donated blood at the Red Cross blood drive.

However, Dierks decided that wasn’t enough. He wanted to give something back to the first responders who were at the Festival. So, on Monday, October 9th, Dierks flew to Las Vegas to perform for those first responders.

Dierks went to instagram and posted pictures with this in the caption: “Thank you @UMCSN for letting me stop by and hang with y’all for a little bit”, and “Thank you for sharing your stories and your time. I needed that.”
