Dierks Bentley Reunites Soldier With His Family At Meet-N-Greet

Dierks Bentley has a special place in his heart for military personnel, so he jumped on the chance to bring a soldier home to surprise his family.

Sergeant Steven Mendez has been overseas serving for almost a year. Bentley helped orchestrate a meet-n-greet surprise for Sergeant Mendez and his family, who came to the tour stop in Fresno, California.


He later brought the family onstage during the show. Dierks says, "I can’t begin to imagine the sacrifice of being away from your family for sometimes years. I love the fact that country music fans hold our military and their families in such high regard and always jump at the chance to say thank you. It was a really cool moment in the show, and a really special thing for me to be part of.” 

Such a heart-warming moment. Thank you to all who serve and props to Bentley for doing something special for this man, who serves this great country!

This is why Country Music is the best!
