The country singer co-wrote the song for the film, which follows a band of Arizona firefighters battling one of the deadliest wildfires in American history.
Country artist Dierks Bentley premiered the new music video for his song "Hold the Light" exclusively with The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday (Oct. 5). The song, which is generating Oscar buzz, is from the upcoming film Only the Brave, starring Jeff Bridges, Josh Brolin, Miles Teller, Taylor Kitsch and Jennifer Connelly.
The movie tells the story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, a unit of Arizona firefighters who risk their lives to protect their town of Prescott from one of the worst wildfires in modern history. For Bentley, an Arizona native, the story hits close to home.
"I was on the road when the fire happened back in 2013, and we went out to do a little benefit in awareness for these families and the community of Prescott," Bentley said. "So we did a concert there and got to meet some of the families, meet Brendan [McDonough], the one firefighter that survived."
