Here we thought Vince Gill and Dierks Bentley had the ultimate bromance and now we find out he’s really head over heels for Mayor Karl Dean.

The Tennessean caught this dialogue straight outta Dierks’ mouth!

“The Preds came to town, and that was the place where the celebs hang out, the cool place to be. I’d always see the mayor there a bunch,” Bentley said.

“We would run into each other at Preds games and talk,” Dean said. “He is a very passionate fan.”

Well hey…I’m sure that can come in handy for both of them!
