I know how excited I get when a song I haven’t heard in ages comes on the radio. But I can’t even imagine how it feels to hear yourself.

At the No. 1 party for his tune “Black,Dierks Bentley told One Country and other media outlets about how much he loves it. The first song of his that he ever heard over the airwaves was “Bartenders, Barstools and Barmaids” from his debut album when it was featured on WSM-AM, the home of the Grand Ole Opry.

To this day, the singer-songwriter loves to jam out to his own music, but he’s got to be cool so he blames it on his kids.

“You always crank it up,” he added. “For me, it’s funny, it comes on the radio and I hear it and I’m like, ‘I’m on the radio. That’s pretty cool.’ Now, my kids will hear it and they’ll be like turn it up!’ If you insist.”
