Playing Dierks Bentley Named Country's Hottest Guy by 'People' Magazine

Dierks Bentley beat out heartthrobs Tim McGraw and Brett Eldredge for People magazine's coveted title of Country's Hottest Guy.

As if his stage presence wasn't enough to land him this honor, Bentley gets major hot points for also being a pilot. The 39-year-old father-of-three flies a Cirrus SR22T Xi and will even fly himself when playing shows.

And it doesn't take much to make this country boy happy. Bentley says his ideal date is a "Sunday morning spent reading the paper together, maybe drinking some mimosas, alone and talking until noon. That would be pretty amazing. Married couples with kids will understand."

"Married couples with kids" may also understand how he came to wish upon this superpower. "To be able to temporarily clone my wife [Cassidy] and me so we could be with our kids, but then also get more alone time," he said.

And if he's not making you swoon yet, Bentley's sleeping habits might seal the deal! "Honestly, I sleep best wearing nothing," he confessed. "But with kids, I've learned to sleep with underwear very close by, if not wrapped around one of my feet, so I'm ready to go if something happens."

Bentley kicks off his Sounds of Summer tour Friday, June 5.
