Why Dierks Bentley Thinks a Ballet Lesson Would Be Good for Luke Bryan

03/29/2016 at 10:15 PM ET

As two of country’s top acts, Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley have a lot in common. But when the longtime friends get together, talk turns to family rather than fame.

“We’ve had this similar trajectory of life and family,” says Bentley, 40. “That’s always the biggest bond for us — being married and having kids. That’s the real stuff.”

The pair, who will be hosting the ACM Awards together on Sunday, married within a year of one another (Bentley in 2005 and Bryan in 2006) and both had their first kids in 2008.

Dierks Bentley: I Became a Man When I Met My Wife (and Had Kids)

Dierks  Bentley Esquire Mentors

Dierks Bentley didn’t know what he was thinking before he met his wife.

In a recent interview with Esquire, the country crooner says it wasn’t until Cassidy entered his life that he officially became a man.

“Women are very wise, knowingly and unknowingly. They have a lot more going on upstairs and in their soul than we do,” Bentley, 38, says.

“My wife, I always felt, has been very wise and has dragged me along, getting me to this spot of manhood.”

Although Cassidy started Bentley off on the journey, it took hitting three major markers in the road — the births of their children, Knox, 1 on Thursday, Jordan Catherine, 3½, and Evalyn Day, 6 — for him to reach his final destination.

Why Dierks Bentley Will ‘Absolutely Not’ Have More Kids

04/03/2014 at 11:00 PM ET

Dierks Bentley may be one of country music’s hottest stars (he just scored his 11th No. 1 song with “I Hold On”), but the new dad’s role is reversed when he’s at home.

According to Bentley, he’s the fan and it’s his kids — daughters Evie, 5, and Jordan, 3, and son Knox, 5 months — that are the real superstars.

“Me and [my wife] Cassidy will sit on the floor while the girls put on a performance, usually to the Frozen soundtrack, and it’s unbelievable,” he tells PEOPLE Country.

“Evie knows every word. Knox is there in my lap laughing like crazy — he thinks his sisters are the funniest people in the entire world.”

Dierks Bentley and his wife Cassidy have put together a new parenting plan: divide and conquer!

Since welcoming their third child, son Knox in October, the country crooner admits everyone — including daughters Jordan Catherine, 2½, and Evalyn Day, 5 — is still learning to adjust to being a family of five.

“My wife and I are definitely out-manned for sure. It requires you splitting up and doing things separately,” Bentley, 37, told PEOPLE at his Miles and Music for Kids event in Nashville on Sunday.

“I took the girls to breakfast this morning. It’s kind of a drag because we hate being apart, but that’s just the way it is right now.”

Happily married to wife Cassidy and a dad to two daughters, Dierks Bentley‘s life is pretty perfect.

“I have two girls that are so awesome … I can’t imagine being any happier or wanting anything more,” the country singer tells PEOPLE at Bud Light Music First‘s 50/50/1 event.

However, his happiness will hit an all-time high when the family of four welcomes their newest addition in early October: a baby boy.

“I have no idea what to expect, but we’re really excited and looking forward to it,” he says.

Balancing out that baby bliss is a feeling of trepidation in tackling three kids, although Bentley admits he and his wife have been beat since the birth of their first daughter Evalyn Day, 5 next month.

Dierks Bentley‘s fans showed up for a performance, but the dad-to-be ended up sharing much more than his stellar voice.

While on the road for his current tour, Bentley met concert-goers at the door — via a video message — to get their best guesses on the sex and name of his third child with wife Cassidy, due this fall.

“You guys mean everything to us and that’s why we’re always trying to give you guys the fan club exclusive,” Bentley, 37, says in the clip. “And for today for the Last Call Ball 9 we thought it would be kind of funny to give you the scoop on whether or not I’m having a boy or girl.”

In addition to guesses on the sex of the baby, Bentley also received several suggestions as to what the couple should name their new addition. Among them? Dierks-Anne for a girl and Deacon Cash for a boy, which both received a “pretty good” from the doting dad.
