How do you spell country hunk? It could be D-I-E-R-K-S or it could be K-I-P. These two singers begin their quest to become country music's ultimate hottie today. March Man-Ness is pairing leading Nashville men two by two to decide number one. Which of these two singers gets your vote?

Dierks Bentley has been a favorite since he first began talking about little white tank tops in 2003. With curly hair, a buzz cut or something in between, this t-shirt and jeans country star has had ladies taking lingering looks long after he passes by.

Kip Moore is a relative newcomer. The surfer is a bit more rebellious, and he's single, which won't hurt his chances at beating Bentley. Fans will ultimately decide which of these two men will move on to Round 2. Vote once every hour until polls close on March 16 at 11:59PM ET. The winner will face either Eric Church or Ronnie Dunn.
