    Posted by Scott Hanson

    Dierks Bentley has been reunited with his beloved dog Jake!

    The mutt went missing yesterday afternoon after thunderstorms in Nashville scared him, and he jumped over Dierks’s fence. Dierks took to Twitter and Facebook to help find his pup, posting, “Praying someone found him. A cold, wet, white dog. Red collar.” The search went viral, and Jake was found early this morning (Monday) by a young lady named Anna Belle.

    Dierks posted, “OMG. My wife just told me someone found Jake on Facebook and is bringing him to our house! One of the happiest days of my life. Grown men don’t cry -- yeah, right. Thanks you to everyone on Facebook and Twitter that spread the word.”

    Dierks added a photo with Jake and his rescuer: “And here he is! Thank you, Anna Belle! She swooped in and picked Jake up after he was almost hit by another car.”

    Posted by Scott Hanson

    The Johnson City frat house where Kenny Chesney lived when he was a student at East Tennessee State University is for sale. When word spread that the Lambda Chi Alpha house had been Kenny's campus home, more than a thousand people checked it out online -- perhaps hoping there would be a keg hidden in the closet.
