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.
