The style, the smile, the figure and the personality ... for the women on this 10 Sexiest Female Country Stars of 2013 list, it all comes together. Six of these beauties are new to this year's collection, but all 10 found a new way to inspire the male country fan to pay close attention.
Some shine on the red carpet, while others look their best in jeans or a pair of shorts and cowgirl boots. One star proved she has the best abs in the business, while another never misses an opportunity to show off her highly-publicized legs. All 10 women are also at the peak of their music careers. They're game-changers on the red carpet, on the radio and on the stage. Scroll through to see who made the cut and why.
Why She's Sexy: Perhaps it's no surprise that a former model and actress opens this list of the 10 sexiest females in country music today. The 'Why Ya Wanna' singer puts it all together and mixes up her styles, depending on the event. On red carpets, Jana Kramer floats like royalty in long, delicate gowns. On stage, her style is cute and casual. Kramer may be country music's classiest newcomer. She's a woman who knows she doesn't need revealing outfits to turn heads.
Why She's Sexy: It's official! Taylor Swift is sexy. No longer is the teen sensation hiding beneath age-appropriate sundresses and long, flowing gowns. At 23, she's striking a pose in outfits that are at times low-cut or strikingly short. She suddenly has legs and curves! It's a stunning realization for fans who've followed her since before she could drive a car. One under-discussed achievement of Swift's is how she's evolved musically as she's matured. Never has she been left to play songs that feel awkward for a grown woman to sing. It's been a natural process.
Why She's Sexy: Four words: 'Dancing With the Stars.' Kellie Pickler might have made this list of the sexiest female artists of 2013 before her revealing performances on the hit ABC show, but outfits like the one pictured sealed the deal. One of the show's biggest mysteries is how a couple like Pickler and Derek Hough can hold each other close for over three months and then come away saying they're like brother and sister. The sensuality she showed adds one more layer to an already intriguing cake. Pickler may win the best abs in country music award, as well.
Gloriana's Rachel Reinert
Why She's Sexy: For years, Rachel Reinert came across as the shy, quiet member of Gloriana, lost between the older, flashier and more engaging Gossin Brothers. That's not the case any longer. This auburn-haired beauty is impossible to ignore now. Short bangs frame two dark, beautiful eyes, while she finds red carpet dresses that hug her striking figure. In this photo, we love the purple shoes. It's that little splash of intrigue that keeps you on your toes.
Why She's Sexy: Kimberly Perry of the Band Perry is something of an enigma. She's calculated in revealing what she wants to about her personal life -- boyfriend questions won't get you very far -- but songs from the trio's new album 'Pioneer' show a vulnerable side, in addition to the feistiness she presents on stage. The blonde's style is unique and compelling, but she never sacrifices function for form, and she always stays on the safe side of revealing. Few women work the stage as well as this 29-year-old. Her confidence is captivating.
Why She's Sexy: Newcomer Kacey Musgraves seems like the type of woman who makes no effort to be sexy, which of course is the sexiest thing you can do. Until recently, the 'Blowin' Smoke' singer was more cute than hot, but she shattered that illusion with the cover art for her debut album 'Same Trailer Different Park.' The short-shorts and cowgirl boots look is a fashion statement that, much like her original music, is bold and satisfying.
Why She's Sexy: We checked, and Carrie Underwood still has the best legs in country music. More than that, the 'Blown Away' singer blows fans away with a winning smile and increasingly sassy personality. Since marrying Mike Fisher, Underwood has seemed more comfortable showing the many sides of who she is. Vulnerable, playful, angry, sweet, generous ... this super talent is sexy inside and out.
Why She's Sexy: This rocker-turned-country-singer has a little wild in her eyes and an individual style that no one else has copied -- yet. Even when Cassadee Pope puts her hair up and slips into a gorgeous gown for awards shows, one senses that she can't wait to kick off her shoes and have some fun. Here, she shows us confidence in a one-of-a-kind top and dark jeans with high heels. She's 10 feet tall and beautiful.
Why They're Sexy: The Pistol Annies are like a bad girl trio of country super heroes, and they're not above wearing the tight, jaw-dropping outfits that pinups like Wonder Woman were known for. The group is sexy, smart and talented. It's an intimidating combination that turns out some of the most honest country music imaginable.
Why She's Sexy: Katie Armiger looks like the type of girl your mother warns you to stay away from. Sure, in reality she's as sweet as vanilla bean ice cream, but her flaming hair and soul-piercing, sky blue eyes speak danger. The new video for the song 'Playin' With Fire' doesn't help -- or hurt, depending on one's perspective. Now 21 years old, this one-time teen sensation has matured into a whiplash-inducing beauty on the red carpet.
