How to Be a Hot Guy at the CMAs: 8 Simple Steps
STEP ONE: TAKE YOUR TIME...LITERALLY
We hope Sam Hunt, who's up for four awards at Wednesday's Country Music Association Awards, spends as much time as possible in front of the cameras. You know, live life to the fullest. Seize the day.
STEP TWO: ADD SOME PIZZAZZ
Chase Bryant set the standard for statement jackets for tonight/forever.
STEP THREE: DON'T BE AFRAID OF A LITTLE MESS
The Band Perry bassist Reid Perry didn't waste time smoothing down his man bun, and we're all the better for it.
STEP FOUR: SERIOUSLY – PUT DOWN THE RAZOR
Dierks Bentley may have just inspired the CMAs to create a new category next year: Sexiest Scruff of the Year.
STEP FIVE: WHEN IN DOUBT, ROCK ALL BLACK
Two-time nominee Luke Bryan looks oh-so-dapper in this all-black ensemble, and you can, too.
STEP SIX: BUT WE WON'T BE MAD IF YOU MIX IT UP
Scotty McCreery puts a twist on his classic suit with a gold embellished jacket, and … swoon.
STEP SEVEN: WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T FORGET YOUR HAT
Dustin Lynch is the perfect classy cowboy (insert heart-eyes emoji).
STEP EIGHT: KEEP THEM WANTING MORE
Pro tip: Give your fans just enough time to pick their jaws up from off the floor, and then, just like that, the faintest of winds blowing in the background, a hauntingly beautiful harmony in the air, leave. Here, Justin Timberlake is gone from our sights just a bit too soon. It's always a bit too soon.
