Dierks Bentley celebrated his 10th anniversary as a Grand Ole Opry member Tuesday night. During his 30-minute set, Dierks brought out his beloved dog, Jake, who was on hand for Dierks’ Opry induction in 2005.

Dierks introduced his pup saying, “He was here with me 10 years ago. I was driving away this afternoon and I thought, ‘Ive got to bring Jake back out.’” 

Opry legend Bill Anderson presented Dierks with a special print marking his decade of Opry membership.

“The Opry is my home,” Dierks told the crowd. “This means the world to me tonight. We’ve been on the road so much of the past ten years it’s good to be home.”  

Dierks’ set included his latest hit, “Riser,” as well as his hit singles “Home,” “Free and Easy (Down the Road I Go)” and “What Was I Thinkin’.”
