Celebrities love Minnesota and the latest was spotted in a place where many of us are at but not really on the lookout for famous people.

Another Famous Celebrity Spotted in Minnesota

I am always in the wrong place at the wrong time.  I missed by one day, seeing the cast and famous hosts of Love Is Blind when they were filming in Minnesota.

And it looks like my kids are in the wrong sports.  If only I agreed to let my kid play hockey, maybe I would have had a chance to sit right next to the celebrity who was in Minnesota a few days ago.  A few lucky fans did have that chance though and I'm genuinely happy for you.  (Ok, I said that last part a little sarcastically because I'm also jealous.)

Eden Prairie, a town where I used to work, was the lucky spot this time for a celebrity sighting.

According to YouthHockeyHub's Facebook page, one of the dads in the stands at a hockey tournament was the one and only, country music superstar, Dierks Bentley.

Who is Dierks Bentley?

If you haven't heard the name "Dierks Bentley", that tells me you probably listen to music other than country, which is fine.  Everyone likes different things.  Although I am on a radio station that plays artists like Taylor Swift (who just had a massive album release!), Ed Sheeran, Maroon 5, and George Michael, I do occasionally have country music playing in my AirPods.  And Dierks Bentley is one of my favorites.

Not only does he have amazing songs but he has been nominated for multiple Grammy Awards.  He has been nominated and also won several Country Music Association Awards.  He won the CMT Performance of the Year in 2009 and he has even appeared in a few film and tv shows.  His list of accomplishments is pretty phenomenal and you can see why you should start listening, if you aren't already, here.

If you have zero clue how to start listening to this world of country music, I've got a few friends that love waking up with you every morning.  I call them friends but you probably know them as Curt St. John and Samm Adams.  You can listen to them as you are waking up and getting ready for work each workday on Quick Country 96.5.  And because we live in the year of amazing technology, you can actually listen to them wherever you are reading this story thanks to free apps.  (Now, if country music isn't your thing, come listen to me over on Y-105FM for free.)
