Dierks Bentley Fan With Cerebral Palsy Calls on Others for Photo With the Star
Dierks Bentley fan Sophia Victoria had the time of her life at her favorite singer's Sounds of Summer show on July 9 in Virginia Beach, but she doesn’t have anything to remember it by. The young girl posted to Facebook this week with a plea to the community to help find that special memento.
Sophia, who has cerebral palsy, is in the photo with her sign from the concert, and in the caption she explains what happened.
"Dierks came up to me and grabbed my hand. It happened so fast that my mom and friend didn't get a picture of it. I couldn't take one myself because I have Cerebral Palsy and I can't take pictures with a phone because my hands don't work right,” she explains.
She goes on to ask fellow fans, friends and family to pass along her note, asking if anyone managed to catch a photo of the interaction.
“I have a hard time remembering things and I'm afraid I am going to forget the most extraordinary moments of my life because I'm a big fan (I even got a tattoo of his Riser eagle),” she continues.
If anyone is deserving of the “Riser” title, it’s Sophia. No word yet on whether or not Sophia has found a photo of the special moment, but here’s hoping the power of the internet and the country music community can help her out!
Bentley wrapped up the Sounds of Summer Tour in September, but made one more appearance alongside Taylor Swift on her 1989 Tour to perform "Every Mile a Memory." He also recently celebrated his 10-year anniversary as a member of the Grand Ole Opry. Bentley took the stage last week with Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley to help him out on his solo venture debut on The Tonight Show along with Eric Paslay.
