Dierks Bentley Mourns Loss Of Beloved Companion

Dierks Bentley Mourns Loss Of Beloved Companion | Country Music Videos



One of Dierks Bentley’s dearest and oldest friends has died. Bentley’s beloved dog, 15-year old Jake, passed away Sunday after a courageous battle with cancer. The singer announced Jake’s death with a social media post that simply read, “Rest in peace pal.” 

Not only has Jake been Bentley’s constant companion since the start of his country music career, but the pup earned a spot on the singer’s 2003 debut album cover and in one of Bentley’s first music videos, “What Was I Thinkin’.”

Most recently Jake accompanied Dierks on tour, to The Grand Ole Opry, and to the recent unveiling of his Country Music Hall of Fame Exhibit, Dierks Bentley: Every Mile a Memory. 

Knowing that Jake’s health was fragile, Bentley included a tribute to the dog on the last verse of the final cut of his new album, “Black.”

“For fifteen years right by my side | From a single man to three kids and a wife | Friends come and go, but when it comes to Jake | There’s just some things that can’t be replaced.”

Rest in peace, Jake. Our prayers are with Dierks Bentley as he mourns the loss of his friend.
