Dierks Bentley: Unplugging for Veterans

Stars and Strings Show to Fund Folds of Honor

There is truly no better way to celebrate Veteran’s Day than to honor everyone who has ever served (or is still serving) in the military. And it doesn’t hurt if you can give a little to help support those military families, either.

But to do it with an acoustic country show? That’s just a next-level kind of Veteran’s Day tribute.

This new Stars and Strings show will deploy Dierks Bentley and his band of brothers, Gary Allan, Hunter Hayes, Jake Owen, Justin Moore, Kip Moore, Lee Brice, Little Big Town and The Band Perry, to Chicago on Nov. 11, for an acoustic show at the city’s legendary Chicago Theatre.

Presented by CBS Radio, proceeds from the show will benefit Folds of Honor, which provides educational support to spouses and children of America’s fallen and wounded soldiers. And Bentley thinks that’s pretty cool.

“The tickets are going to benefit the Folds of Honor, a foundation that is really important to me, that helps the children of deceased and wounded veterans go to college. It’s going to be fun — a chance to play country music, honor our veterans and raise money for a great cause,” he said in a press release. “That’s awesome for me, and I feel lucky to be a part of it.”
