It doesn’t matter how big of a celebrity you might become, every star still freaks out when they meet another artist they truly admire.

Dierks Bentley recently shared with  Rolling Stone Magazine some of his biggest ‘fan girl’ moments when meeting his Country Music idols.

One story we couldn’t help but die of laughter from was the time he met Allison Krauss and Dolly Parton while working in the studio.

“Alison Krauss is probably my Number One. She came into the studio to sing on my first record. Dolly Parton was there, too. My dog Jake ran up to Dolly Parton and he put his nose up her skirt. We were like, ‘Oh my God, don’t do that.’ I didn’t know Dolly and she said, ‘Watch out there little doggie, don’t start something you can’t finish.'”
Now that’s the classic quick-witted Dolly we all have grown to love. But if there’s anyone who could put a silly old dog in it’s place, that would be Dolly Parton.

Diapers. Not fun.

Some ladies like a clean cut man, other’s like a little fuzz to keep them warm. In this interview Tim McGraw talks about growing gray, why he won’t do “Just For Men,” and the real reason why Faith Hill likes his grizzly beard.
Beard or no beard, Tim is undeniably one of the hottest male Country Music artists of all time.

What do you ladies think? Should he keep the fuzz?
