Hearing Dierks Bentley and Elle King talk about each other is a fun thing. The GRAMMY-nominated pair (for their No. 1 single, “Different For Girls“) genuinely care for each other, but they both can dish it and take it.

I woke up this morning unassuming, unaware of what day it was. This time a year ago I was EYES GLUED to the tv praying to hear my name on the Grammy nominee list. I was. This morning I wake up slowly, walking naked around my hotel room. Avoiding checking my phone, the constant vibrations from the bedside table tell me something's up. I see the dozens of texts saying "CONGRATS ON THE GRAMMY NOM WITH DIERKS" my heart stops. My dear friend, and one of my all time favorite people on this planet, I am so proud of what our song has done. And now we get the honor of a nomination in the highest form of recognition. What I've learned from being a Grammy nominee, is that it truly is an honor just to be nominated. And to be nominated with one of my friends truly makes it that much sweeter. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this song. I love you and will be forever indebted to you. 2 years in a row! Let's go Grammys!!! #BestCountryDuo LONG LIVE COUNTRY MUSIC!

Taking a step back from the fun, sarcastic side of their relationship, Elle recently left a note for Dierks on Instagram that us being all cliche and saying #friendshipgoals.

Elle shared, “… to step back and think about the kind of person who not only invites a friend up to sing their duet at their sold out arena show, but in the middle of the set let’s them sing their OWN song is something that is beyond my comprehension. To say that you are someone I aspire to be is an understatement. The respect I have for you is not something I can put into words, but the love…that’s measured in the trillions. Thank you for not only giving me a glimpse into my dream world…but letting me live in it. I wouldn’t want to be a part of country without you. I love you from the deepest parts of my heart and soul dear friend, I am so unbelievably proud of you.”

She should be a songwriter.

Everyone knew there was something special about tonight. Not just because you sold out the @bridgestonearenaofficial … but because there was a full arena full of people there to scream, sing along, and cheer you on. To step back and think about the kind of person who not only invites a friend up to sing their duet at their sold out arena show, but in the middle of the set let's them sing their OWN song is something that is beyond my comprehension. To say that you are someone I aspire to be is an understatement. The respect I have for you is not something I can put into words, but the love…that's measured in the trillions. Thank you for not only giving me a glimpse into my dream world…but letting me live in it. I wouldn't want to be a part of country without you. I love you from the deepest parts of my heart and soul dear friend, I am so unbelievably proud of you.
