(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)
Ryan Gosling, I understand. And I suppose Bradley Cooper, too. But how did the People people fill this Sexiest Man Alive list with all these guys who are not country singers? So far, Tim McGraw is the only country one who is on the list. And I agree that he is definitely one of the sexiest on the SMA list. But come on. Where is Jason Aldean? Dierks Bentley? Keith Urban? Charles Kelley of Lady Antebellum? Eric Church? Kenny Chesney? Jake Owen? Jaron Lowenstein? Joe Don Rooney? Zac Brown Band? David Nail? Gary Allan? Chris Young? Blake Shelton? So much sexy, not enough pages, I suppose. And maybe not all those men I listed are sexy in a traditional way, but still. They all have the natural sex appeal of a frontman in addition to their own signature sexiness. Like tight jeans, knit beanies, scruffy beards, come-here-baby smiles, duct-taped boots, black cowboy hats, tattoos, bedroom eyes, a pierced ear or two and a communal bottle of Jack Daniel’s on the stage at all times. Those turn everyone on. Right? Or is it just me?
