    That 183rd Fighter Wing T-shirt country star Dierks Bentley wore Saturday night during NBC’s coverage of the “Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular” concert is causing a stir in Springfield. Social media lit up over the weekend after the televised concert.

  • How did this happen?Lt. Col. Bradley Leighton, director of Public Affairs for the Illinois National Guard says the Guard is as in the dark as the rest of us. Major Gen. William Cobetto, assistant adjutant general of the Guard even called Leighton to find out after Cobetto’s wife noticed the shirt.Leighton posted the photo on the Guard’s Facebook site Monday. He said it’s an old 183rd shirt because it shows an F-4 Phantom and those haven’t been in Springfield for years.”The best we can come up with is that when he performed here in 2011 someone threw him a shirt,” says Bradley. “The 183rd is obviously thrilled as is headquarters here.”But here is the official explanation from Bentley’s media rep Mary Hilliard Harrington: “Dierks often wears vintage T-shirts on stage and this is one that he got from a store in Los Angeles. He thought it was perfect for this 4th of July performance … glad everyone in Springfield liked it too!”
