One of country music's most beautiful men battles a rugged Georgia cowboy in this Round 1 March Man-Ness battle. Taste of Country's March Man-Ness is a 32-team, bracket-style quest to decide the sexiest man in country music. Do either Jake Owen or Jason Aldean have what it takes? 

While it's difficult to call either one of these men a favorite, it's hard to ignore Owen's perfect smile and washboard abs. Aldean's appeal, on the other hand, comes from his more understated approach ... and from his water-blue eyes. He looks great in a pair of blue jeans and cowboy boots -- a look his female fans are grateful he sports often.

Fans decide who moves on during each March Man-Ness round, so who is it gonna be? Vote for your favorite every hour until the polling closes on March 16, 2014 at 11:59PM ET. The winner will move on to face either Chris Young or Tim McGraw.
