Luke Bryan hasn't reached his full fame potential yet, a recent awkward encounter reveals.

The singer performed at a gala hosted by Bass Pro to celebrate the opening of its new Wonders of Wildlife Museum & Aquarium in Springfield, Mo, on Tuesday. Dierks Bentley was a fellow performer, and the pair caught up with former President George W. Bush, who was a guest attendee, during the event.

The high-profile trio snapped a photo together to commemorate the occasion, but things got weird when the shot was shown and discussed on Fox News show The Five Wednesday evening.

During the show's "One More Thing" section, the photo was shared on air with the text "Dana's dream come true: 43 meets Dierks (Luke Bryant looks on)" underneath.

Bryan — whose name is also spelled incorrectly in the clip — posted a screenshot highlighting the awkward mistake and third-wheel nature of the headline.

I guess I'm still working to get people to know who I am.

"I guess I'm still working to get people to know who I am," the country singer captioned the photo.

But things continue to get weirder with a look at the full video aired on the national news broadcast.

Show host Dana Perino expressed her love for former President Bush and Bentley, excluding Bryan from the conversation.

"As you know, I have some favorite things in the world. One of them is George W. Bush, the other one, Dierks Bentley. Last night they met," she said on-air. "That's Luke Bryan who kind of got cut out of the picture, but we don't really care as much about him."

Merino may prefer Bentley over Bryan, but the "Huntin', Fishin' & Lovin' Every Day" singer is one of country music's biggest names.

With his latest album Kill the Lights, the singer nabbed his fourth million-selling record and earned two American Country Countdown Awards for Artist of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year. He also took hold a Billboard Music Award for Top Country Artist in 2016.
