'Only The Brave' Screening Held In Nashville

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The stars came out for a special screening of Only The Brave in Nashville.

The movie is based on the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots - a group of expert firefighters who risked everything to save Prescott, Arizona from an out-of-control wildfire back in 2013.

The star of the film, Josh Brolin, was at the screening along with a couple of the hot-shot firefighters.

"They're the type of people who really don't want the spotlight but they deserve it," one of the firefighters. "So to be able to do that [make the movie] is something that's a great honor, and we're really happy to have that opportunity." 

"It's something to be appreciated, praised, and brings great humility when you realize it," said Brolin.

Also at the screening was country music star Dierks Bentley. His new song "Hold The Light" is from the movie's soundtrack.

The Arizona native said after seeing what these guys go through and after the tragedy in Las Vegas, he's even more grateful for our country's first responders.

"They put others in front of them and they serve our communities day in and day out so...I think this movie will help, hopefully spread a little more awareness about those folks," Dierks said.

Only The Brave was set to be released in theaters next Friday.
