Nationals sub out Dierks Bentley for Saturday concert

Friday - 6/1/2012, 4:09pm  ET

WASHINGTON - The Nationals have announced that Dierks Bentley will be unable to play his previously scheduled concert Saturday night due to a serious illness in his family.

Those heading to the game Saturday will still be able to enjoy a concert. The team has replaced Bentley with country superstars Big and Rich in the first free NatsLive Post-Game Concert of the season.

The three-time Grammy Award nominees have sold more than five million albums and will release their new album "Hillbilly Jedis" later this year.

The concert is free for fans who have a valid ticket for Saturday's game against the Braves.
