Dierks Bentley hasn’t been coping well since the devastating tragedy at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas this past weekend, so he did the only thing he could think of to feel better – he donated blood to help the victims.
“First smile in two days thanks to being around other donors and great people @americanredcross #redcross #fiddlindan,” he writes on Instagram, sharing, “haven’t really been able to function at all since the shooting. such deep sorrow. sadness. heavy and dark.”
Dierks adds, “My relationship with country music fans, as well as my band and my crew’s relationship with them, is something we all cherish so deeply. some of those friendships have been forged for well over a decade. my heart breaks over and over again for all those fans in Las Vegas and their families.”
