Dierk’s Bentley’s official site posted: Due to extreme flooding, power outages and road closures in Nashville, Dierks Bentley is canceling his “UP ON THE RIDGE” concert dates scheduled for tonight in Knoxville, TN and Mon. night in Charlottesville, VA. Tickets purchased for both shows will be refunded.
“For the safety of my band, crew and their families back here in Nashville, we are parking the buses and not going to try and attempt the trip east to Knoxville and Charlottesville,” explains Bentley. “As much as we’d love to be playing music tonight, it feels like the right thing to do. I hope to reschedule both dates soon.”
Dierk’s had posted earlier on Twitter and Facebook a picture of himself bailing water out of his basement. The rain and flooding is intense in the Tennessee area. Thoughts and prayers to all that have been affected from this storm.
