DIERKS ON MY COUNTRY SMASH HITS
A superstar line-up, including Dierks Bentley, will contribute to a new compilation CD to benefit The Fisher House foundation. My Country: Smash Hits will be released on August 24 and also includes a special message from President George W. Bush. Other artists on the album include: Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Brad Paisley, Trace Adkins, Darius Rucker, Reba McEntire, Blake Shelton, Rodney Atkins, Jypsi, Randy Houser, Big & Rich and Montgomery Gentry.
Legendary Doonesbury creator, cartoonist Garry Trudeau, has graciously donated a special cartoon and designed the cover of MY COUNTRY: SMASH HITS.
The Fisher House Foundation provides housing for the military, both active and retired, as well as the families of military personnel who are receiving treatment at a military medical center. Fisher House Foundation has a network of 50 comfort homes in the United States. Each facility is 5,000 to 16,000 square feet, with as many as 21 suites, donated to the military and Department of Veterans Affairs by the Fisher House Foundation. There is NO FEE to stay at these homes.
The project is a multiple CD series with each annual volume benefiting the Fisher House Foundation.
It comes at no surprise that our DB Congress President is participating in a project to benefit our US Military in some way. Dierks has always shown his appreciation for our troops--like when he sings "My Last Name" in concert, which is the song he contributes to this album (Track 12).
