Tim McGraw's got some friends in high places it seems. The singer recently chatted with CMT and expressed his fondness for the coolest man in rock music, Bruce Springsteen. The two met during the 2013 MusiCares Person of the Year show where Tim paid tribute to the American icon. "He's one of the coolest guys I've ever been around and [I'm] proud to count him as a friend," McGraw said. Aside from counting him as a friend, Tim also admires him for his musical talents. He says, "He's an American treasure. I think he's one of those icons of music that rarely comes along. ... You look back through history and there's only a handful of 'em, and he's certainly one of those guys that's inspired so many people," McGraw said. Springsteen is set to perform in Nashville on April 17 so maybe Tim will get the chance to perform with the rocker. That or he can take Faith out for a nice date night.
