Dierks Bentley loses his best friend

Dierks Bentley took Jake seemingly everywhere; I met the pup on several occasions when I interviewed Dierks; his “bestie” would sit in a corner and patiently wait.

I saw them together at interviews, red carpet events, on his bus, in his lap, at festivals. Jake was in his life before his wife or children. I am sure he is heart broken today.

 

 

Here’s a song on Dierk’s latest album in which he dedicates an entire verse to Jake:

Here are the lyrics to the song:

Levi jacket broken in just right
I left it on the bleachers that Friday night
Felt so cool in the stone-washed fade
There’s just some things that can’t be replaced
That runaround freedom summer ’89
Spinnin’ that bottle on a lot of first times
It was all summed up on a Memorex mixtape
There’s just some things that can’t be replaced

Woah, it don’t matter how hard you try
Woah, all the money in the world won’t ever buy
What you miss, what you want back
It’d be nice, but life don’t work like that
You can get damn close, but it won’t ever be the same
There’s just some things that can’t be replaced
There’s just some things that can’t be replaced

Sediment hay, and a heart of gold
Chevy Cavalier on an old backroad
A boot’s farm kiss that I still taste
There’s just some things that can’t be replaced

Woah, no matter how hard you try
Woah, all the money in the world won’t ever buy
What you miss, what you want back
It’d be nice, but life don’t work like that
You can get damn close, but it won’t ever be the same
There’s just some things that can’t be replaced
There’s just some things that can’t be replaced
Woah

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

Woah, no matter how hard you try
Woah, all the money in the world won’t ever buy
What you miss, what you want back
It’d be nice, but life don’t work like that
You can get damn close, but it won’t ever be the same
There’s just some things that can’t be replaced
There’s just some things that can’t be replaced
