During a special NFL Playoff edition of Mad Money, the Kansas City Chiefs owner spoke candidly about Taylor Swift's artistry and relationship with Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.

"We're so happy for Travis Kelce and Taylor in their relationship," Hunt told host Jim Cramer when asked what he thinks about the "Taylor Swift phenomenon."

"I've had a chance to meet her at one of the many games that she's attended this year, and she's just as sweet as she can be," he continued. "I also got to see her play here twice this past summer, and what an incredible performer. Just one of the most amazing artists of our time."

The CEO said that Swift, 34, and Kelce's romance has made it a "very fun year" due to the new attention on the team and the growth of its female fanbase.

"It was purely organic," Hunt said. "When they were just starting off dating, there were a lot of people saying, 'Oh, it's a marketing stunt.' But no, it's very real. And as I said, the most important thing is we're happy for the two of them."

The Chiefs drafted Kelce, 34, in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Making Kansas City, Missouri, his home was something a source told PEOPLE made him "genuinely happy."

"He loves KC. He's genuinely happy there, and that's why he chose to put down real roots," the source shared with PEOPLE in this week's cover story on him and his brother Jason. The source said that one of the reasons why he also loves the city is because he has "a lot of friends" living in the nearby area.

"Most of his friends are just normal guys and a lot he's known since college. He's a very loyal guy and a lot of his friends have been in his life for a long, long time," the source said.
