Well, this wouldn’t be the first time America found a country star to be one of the sexiest men alive. Last year, Blake Shelton took home the title of People’s Sexiest Man Alive for the November issue. With some glamour shots and a personal interview, we got to see a different side of Shelton. Of course, his reaction was even better than his close-ups though, “Y’all must be running out of people!”

2018 Sexiest Country Star

Although Shelton isn’t being replaced by another country peer for the title of 2018 Sexiest Man Alive, he is being replaced for another title. The handsome and charming fellow country singer, Thomas Rhett has been named as People’s Sexiest Country Star. Rhett, who is known for his down-to-earth attitude and simple lifestyle was more than surprised when he found out about his big news.

“Definitely feel like I just won a high school superlative. Thank you @people for this – our group text was hilarous but brutal today.”

The issue, which will be out this Friday, features Rhett in a white undershirt with a cozy black cardigan. With a little scruff and beaming brown eyes, it’s no wonder the “Marry Me” star won his nomination.

Rhett’s Story

Rhett is the father of two beautiful baby girls with his longtime wife Lauren. The couple, who have been admired for their relationship since the very beginning, adopted their daughter Willa Gray from Uganda in 2017. Not long after Willa, the couple found out they were pregnant with their youngest daughter, Ada James.

In his PEOPLE interview for the issue, he gushed about his role in his family,

“I take pride in trying to understand my wife and my kids, what makes them laugh, what makes them cry, what makes them happy, what makes them sad. I try to make sure I’m the best husband and dad I can possibly be.”

Congrats to our new Sexiest Country Star, Thomas Rhett. You have our vote any day!
