Here’s a feel-good Monday morning story for you. Social media has done it again: Last night, country singer Dierks Bentley sent out Twitter and Facebook flares that his dog Jake — a fan favorite thanks to his appearances in music videos, song lyrics, and album art — had jumped a fence during thunderstorms and was missing. Bentley and other concerned folks, including the president of his record label, drove around Nashville in the middle of the night looking for him to no avail. But after he’d been gone for approximately 16 hours, Jake was found by someone on Facebook who rescued him after he was almost hit by another car and promptly reunited him with Bentley (pictured, via WhoSay). Bentley wasn’t afraid to admit he got emotional. See the tweet below. READ FULL STORY

This summer, country singer Dierks Bentley had his 10th No. 1 hit with the footstomper “5-1-5-0,” which has helped keep the crowds rockin’ on his Country & Cold Cans Tour. Inspired by their, let’s call it enthusiasm, and the desire to give college students new music for their end-of-summer parties and fall football tailgates, he paid for studio time himself to record some new tunes. The result is his Country & Cold Cans EP, which includes four new songs — the title track, “Grab a Beer,” “Back Porch,” and “Summer on Fire” — and the radio edit of his similarly suds-soaked current single, “Tip it on Back,” from his album Home. “I think the fans will dig the sound. It’s a little grittier, a little different,” Bentley says. “There’s some hand clips, some beatin’ on things. It’s just fun for me to get a chance to do something different every now and then.”
Listen to our exclusive stream of “Back Porch” below. (Think of it as Little Big Town’s “Pontoon” for people who don’t live near a lake). Then, we asked Bentley to name five of his craziest summer memories. Lucky for us, he documented most of them — including an awesome band vs. crew Braveheart reenactment — in his web series, DBTV. Country & Cold Cans will be released Aug. 21 on iTunes. READ FULL STORY
