"He's been by my side every second since" says Dierks.
Thunderstorms scared the 12 year old rescue dog and he jumped his fence on Sunday.
He was missing in the rain and cold for over 15 hours.
"When I was looking for him went five miles both directions all over Nashville" explains Dierks.
Dierks took to social media and the response was overwhelming.
Everyone from strangers, to his record label president were searching hi and lo for his four legged best friend.
"Jake has been there last 12 years! With me moving to town, trying to get a record deal, relationships that did or didn't work out. He's been there through a lot of crazy stuff" says Dierks.
On Monday morning Dierks got the news that Jake was found.
"My wife walked in and said someone found Jake and they are bringing him. I may have shed a tear or two, I was pretty overwhelmed" says Dierks.
Dierks says Jake will no doubt join him on the road for his "Locked and Reloaded" tour with country superstar Miranda Lambert.
"This is a chance to relive the glory days so to speak. She has a catalog of music that is some of the best country stuff out there" he says.
During rehearsals we got a look at what fans can expect.
The biggest change from their last tour will be lots of video elements. "My dad passed away only 6-7 months ago. He was a WW2 vet and so we are using images of him, just making show as personal as possible" he says.
Dierks describes the tour as a scrapbook. A journey he, Miranda and Jake can't wait to head out on!

Trial begins in international custody case
May 21, 2013 08:06 GMT
By SHEILA BURKE Associated Press
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A trial begins Tuesday that could determine which country will decide the fate of 13-year-old twin boys at the center of an international custody battle that extends from Eastern Europe to Middle Tennessee.
The boys are American citizens who were born in Texas but have spent the majority of their lives in Hungary. Their father is an American citizen with family in the Cottontown community of Sumner County. Their mother, a Romanian national, has invoked an international treaty claiming the children are being wrongfully retained in Tennessee by their father.
The boys came to Tennessee last year to visit their paternal grandparents in Sumner County for the summer. The father, who was supposed to bring them back to Europe, stayed in the U.S. and filed for divorce.
