WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah (News4Utah) – Country star Dierks Bentley paid a moving tribute to fallen Draper City Fire Chief Matt Burchett during his Wednesday night concert at USANA Amphitheater. 

“He didn’t get out [of the fire], but because of him, other people are,” said Bentley before he dedicated the 2015 song “Riser” to Burchett and his family, who were also at the concert. 

Draper City Fire Dept. said Bentley personally invited Burchett’s family and co-workers to the concert.

“Because of his commitment to the job and his commitment to his fellow men, other communities will survive – other people will survive,” Bentley said.
