Jake Owen and More of Country's Hottest Guys Go Shirtless

Posted on

Country’s finest are showing off a little skin – and a lot of charm.

“I hate looking at pictures of myself!” Tim McGraw insists. But one glimpse at the 46-year-old singer’s ripped abs, which are featured in the new Hot Guys issue of PEOPLE Country, and we’ll respectfully disagree.

Equally compelling eye candy? Fellow country stars Jake Owen, 31, and Kip Moore, 33, who also go shirtless in the new issue. But, as Owen explains, that buff beauty is more than skin deep.

“Having a little girl and being married, it’s not just about me anymore,” says Owen, whose daughter Olive Pearl was born last November.

“I’ve really cracked down on what I put in my body and staying fit. I used to enjoy entertaining a cold beverage after a show, but now I come off stage to a nice big bottle of water and some salmon and veggies!”

Cover guy Kenny Chesney leads off PEOPLE Country’s Hot list, which also includes Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley, Chris Young, Gary Allan, Josh Turner, newcomers Brett Eldredge and Dustin Lynch, and more.

Bryan and other country music favorites will be at the 2013 CMT Music Awards Wednesday night, airing live at 8 p.m. ET.
