We want to know who you think is the "Sexiest Man In Country!" After some preliminary ... um, research ... we've got our top 16 sexiest men in country music, but we're working to crown THE sexiest man in country.

Going by our preliminary votes, including a lot of write-ins, we have our seeds for our sexiest man bracket. Here are the seeds (I call it the ULTIMATE Sweet 16, y'all!):

Bracket 1

  1. George Strait
  2. Blake Shelton
  3. Keith Urban
  4. Gary Allan
  5. Jake Owen
  6. Brantley Gilbert
  7. Kenny Chesney
  8. Dierks Bentley

Bracket 2

  1. Luke Bryan
  2. Tim McGraw
  3. Josh Turner
  4. Trace Adkins
  5. Jason Aldean
  6. Casey James
  7. Eric Church
  8. Hunter Hayes

Here's how it works: Vote for who you think is sexiest in each matchup here for the first round. Voting will end at 11:59 p.m. Sunday (July 28). It works like a normal bracket -- the No. 1 seed faces the No. 8 seed, No. 2 faces No. 7 and so on.

You can vote once every 12 hours, so don't let your favorites go without your votes!
