(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that's happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)
Somehow, the people at Maxim magazine were able to narrow down all the gorgeous women in country music to the hottest 13. They left out quite a few, in my opinion, but I guess you have to stop somewhere. So there's no Dolly Parton, no Lee Ann Womack, no LeAnn Rimes, no Gretchen Wilson, no Faith Hill, no Kimberly Perry, no Martina McBride. But it's time for some other beauties to shine, so this list shines the light on the obvious ones like Gwyneth Paltrow, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Sara Evans, Kellie Pickler, Julianne Hough and Miranda Lambert. Then some not-so-obvious picks like Jessie James, Julie Roberts, Sunny Sweeney, Shania Twain and Gloriana's Cheyenne Kimball. One of the last ones on the list is Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum. And what I love about this one is how they have a little shout-out to Scott's mom, who they refer to as "'90s hottie/country singer Linda Davis." Do you feel like they missed a few other hotties out there?
