Dierks Bentley didn't just get his pilot's license, he also bought a plane.

Dierks picked up his custom Cirrus SR22T Xi plane in Duluth, Minn., right from the Cirrus plant last week, but not before taking a course training him to fly that specific aircraft.

The company's executive director of marketing, Debbie Breemeersch, told Duluth's News Tribune, "We are grateful for each of our customers, and that Dierks is also a country music star is an added bonus."

Cirrus worked with Dierks to make sure the custom-built plane suited his specific needs and specifications.

Tim McGraw also owns a Cirrus and talks about the joys of flying it in a promotional video.
