ETonline's Sophie Schillaci caught up with the "Drunk on a Plane" singer and his wife at the 2015 CMT Music Awards
on Wednesday, where he opened up about the honor, which he hilariously forgot he won.
"I got a lot of ribbing from the guys in my band and friends that have been texting me about that and stuff," Bentley said.
As for Bentley's wife Cassidy Black, she agreed with People's choice.
"I think you're really cute," Black told her husband, smiling. "Very photogenic and very cute."
"See? There you go," Bentley said. "That's all that matters."
Bentley also opened up about the new music he's making, saying, "I feel like it’s really fun and kind of reflective of where I'm at right now."
"Riser [Bentley's 2014 record] was a deeper album," he added. "I'm trying to see where this one goes. I'm really happy right now and in a great headspace so hopefully the music reflects that in some way."
