The Legends have been making country music look good since some of the other contestants in Taste of Country's March Man-Ness competition were in diapers. Men like George Strait and Alan Jackson have been working hard since the '80s, while other modern legends -- like Kenny Chesney and Trace Adkins -- are the new definition of "classic." 

Only one of these sexy cowboys will move on to the final four in this competition to decide country's hottest male. They've paired up into four contests for Round 1. Strait takes on Joe Nichols, Gary Allan faces Adkins, Garth Brooks is up against Billy Ray Cyrus and Chesney is battling Jackson.

Pick your favorites and vote once every hour until this round closes on March 16 at 11:59PM ET. The eventual winner of this group will move on face a Young Buck beginning March 31.
