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.”

Another favorite activity for the Bentley clan? Going as a family to watch their beloved Nashville Predators play hockey — although Bentley, 39, usually doesn’t get to see the end of the game.

“One time I looked down at my lap and it’s soaking wet. Jordan wet her pants! I looked at my buddies and just said, ‘Time to go!'” he recalls.

But Bentley says he wouldn’t have it any other way. “I’d rather go to half a game with them, than see a whole game by myself,” he says. “As long as we got to do something together, that’s awesome.”

So since he’s having so much fun with his three little ones, might he and Cassidy consider adding to their brood down the line?

“Absolutely not,” he says with a laugh. “I’m already going to be about 58 before Cass and I get any alone time!”
