If you love country music, then there’s a chance that you’ve noticed some of the hottest male country singers working in today’s music industry. So in this article, we’re going to provide our list of the fifteen most charming, musically talented, and overall attractive male singers in country music.
Hottest Male Country Singers You Will Love
Let’s begin with Thomas Rhett.
1. Thomas Rhett
Thomas Rhett’s good looks and boyish charm make him one of the hottest male country singers right now. He has 17 singles that have gone to #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay charts, showing that he’s got an appeal that is not only lasting but produces hits, as well. He’s also written for several other country singers, as well, including Lee Bruce, Jason Aldean, and Florida Georgia Line.
What makes Thomas Rhett such a hit with audiences is his love for his family. Whether he’s taking them on tour, posting photos on Instagram, or including them in his lyrics like in songs such as Life Changes and Die a Happy Man, Rhett’s family man lifestyle is very attractive to people because he’s relatable.

2. Morgan Wallen
Morgan Wallen has cemented himself into country stardom in recent years. With hits like You Proof and Whiskey Glasses, Wallen has enjoyed a lot of popularity since appearing on NBC’s The Voice.
Despite facing some controversy over the past few years, the “Most Wanted Man in Country” is still touring, donating proceeds from each ticket sale to his More Than My Hometown Foundation. This foundation, which was started in 2021, is designed to help children and teens find loving homes.
In terms of attractiveness, what helps Wallen stand out from the crowd is that he took the experience of watching his parents adopt his sister as inspiration to launch the foundation. Though he’s landed on the Top 10 Billboard Hot 100 and Billboard Hot Country Songs with three number one debuts, I have a feeling that Wallen’s accomplishments are only going to continue to grow long after his looks fade.

3. Conner Smith
Though he’s the youngest singer we have on this list at 21 years old, Conner Smith is already starting to make some noise in Nashville. His song I Hate Alabama went viral on TikTok last year which landed him a record deal with Big Machine Records.
Earlier this year, he released an EP called Didn’t Go Too Far which generated a hit single of its own called Learn From It. It probably also helps that he’s young and good-looking, sporting a trucker hat and a stubble to give him a rugged sweetheart look.
He’s one up-and-comer you should definitely keep an eye on.
4. Luke Bryan
Luke Bryan has the kind of classic good looks that age like fine wine. This 46-year-old country singer has 27 number-one hit songs under his belt and doesn’t seem to be letting up any time soon.
Outside of country music, he owns a restaurant called Luke’s 32 Bridge Food + Drink, hosts a 4-night all-inclusive concert vacation called Crash My Playa, and runs his own record label called 32 Bridge Entertainment. It looks like Luke will be keeping himself busy for years to come.
5. Blake Shelton
Who doesn’t love Blake Shelton? The list is no doubt pretty small, as the popular country singer and Voice coach has struck a chord with millions of fans.
Part of Blake’s attractiveness is his personality. Always charming and funny in interviews and on our television screens, Blake has cemented himself as a country music icon, winning 10 Country Music Association Awards and six Academy of Country Music Awards (to name a few).
His song, God’s Country is one of his biggest hits to date and probably the song he’s most known for, which is really saying something considering he thought his career was over shortly before this song came out.
It just goes to show that staying power needs more than just a pretty face and funny jokes. You need to create lyrics that people relate to – and that’s what God’s Country certainly did for Shelton and his legions of fans.
6. Brett Eldredge
Brett Eldredge has a distinct look to him that shows a rugged side to him while also being able to clean up nicely to meet the parents. He has five number-one singles to his name including Don’t Ya, Beat of the Music, and Mean to Me, all of which came from his debut album.
While his earlier work was more pop-country, his newer offerings inject influences of soul and jazz in a way that helps him stand out from the rest of the pack, while still providing songs to sing along to.
7. Cole Swindell
What makes Cole Swindell one of the hottest country stars right now? A lot of it has to do with his relatability, particularly in regards to his latest album Stereotype. While taking the time to address sensitive subjects like grief, Swindell’s latest album not only helped him, but he hopes it helps others. Cole is just one of many newer country artists that have opened up about mental health in their lyrics, signifying a shift in the music genre moving forward.
Cole started his career writing songs for other country singers, including Luke Bryan, Thomas Rhett, and Florida Georgia Line before moving on to his own successful career which includes 8 number one singles, and three other songs that have reached the top 10.
8. Dierks Bentley
Did you know that Dierks Bentley has a private pilot’s license? It’s good to know that there are some brains behind those rugged good looks! Dierks Bentley has amassed 18 number one singles throughout his career, and an additional eight that have cracked the top five.
Being a family man, he’s not afraid to get his family in on the act, including having one of his daughters make a vocal appearance on the song Thinking of You from his 2012 album Home. Can anyone say swoon?
9. Kane Brown
Kane Brown was just 23 years when he became the first artist to have simultaneous number one songs on all five Billboard country charts. The now 28-year-old could have gotten there with just his talent alone, but we’re sure that his good looks definitely helped him out.
He got his career started by posting cover songs at the age of 21 on Facebook which eventually led to his first record deal with Zone 4. At 28, he’s now a family man with a wife and two daughters, and us country fans have no doubt he’s going to have an excellent career ahead of him.
10. Sam Hunt
Sam Hunt has that All-American charm that you want out of your country singer. Believe it or not, he actually pursued a football career, even getting a tryout with the Kansas City Chiefs before leaving football to pursue a career in music that not only lead to a number of successful singles for himself, but gave him writing credits on songs performed by Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, and Reba McIntyre.
He’s also gained recognition in the industry for blending country with R&B and pop to create a distinct style, which has gained a lot of popularity among other bands in the country music industry.
11. Luke Combs
Luke Combs might look like a traditional Southern boy with his baseball cap and scraggly beard, but it’s his Southern charm that he brings to his personality and music that gives him such a universal appeal.
Along with several hits under his belt, he’s been nominated for several awards including Grammys, iHeart Radio awards, Academy of Country Music Awards, and Country Music Association Awards. He was even nominated for the 2021 CMA Entertainer of the Year, which is the highest honor one can win at the CMAs.
12. Walker Hayes
What is your perfect date night? Is it Applebees, where you can get a Bourbon Street Steak and an Oreo Shake? Walker Hayes seems to think so. His fondness for the simple things in life gives him a grounded charm to match his good looks and genuine smile.
Walker Hayes has been making music since 2010, and while he’s had some more minor hits under his belt, nothing has taken off like this date night anthem Simple Like. His ode to the simple things in life is sung with a soulful charm and a smirk on his face that gives him a level of grounded sex appeal that is refreshing in this day and age.
13. Tim McGraw
Alright, so even though Tim McGraw is in his 50s, he is still one of the hottest country singers ever – especially in terms of sales and popularity.
As one of the biggest country stars on the planet, Tim has had hit after hit including songs like Humble and Kind and Live Like You Were Dying, and won several accolades including 14 Academy of Country Music awards, three Grammy awards, and three People’s Choice Awards.
Tim’s lasting appeal has parlayed into a successful movie career, starring in the Blind Side, Four Christmases, and Yellowstone: 1883. He had his own cologne line, reached the New York Times Bestsellers list, and has successful endorsement deals with several companies including Budweiser and Pennzoil. As if you didn’t love him already, just check out his workout videos on Instagram (you’re welcome).
14. Oscar Bugarin from Calling Cadence
You may not be too familiar with Calling Cadence yet, but trust me…you will be. Their latest hit Good Day is a soulful song about a dying relationship, and though the lyrics may describe something that’s had its time in the sun, the same can’t be said for the band itself or its main singer, Oscar Bugarin.
Burgarin has that whole hipster vibe down, with his long hair and unique style. But it’s his voice that is capturing everyone’s attention. In interviews, Oscar has been very open about his desire to make people feel good with his music. Furthermore, when reflecting on his own music taste growing up, he never really felt like he identified with the songs everyone around him loved.
Referring to the band’s sound as Southern Soul, Oscar’s already starting to make a name for himself though he’s just starting out in the industry. With such a unique sound, is it safe to assume that Calling Cadence is bringing back the country blues?
15. Zac Brown
Zac Brown fronts the Zac Brown Band who have brought their more rock-oriented approach to country music to the masses, leading to 13 number-one singles. Gaining respect from both the country and rock crowds, they’ve worked with the likes of Alan Jackson, Jimmy Buffet, Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters, and Chris Cornell of Soundgarden.
While he sports rugged good looks, Zac is about letting the music speak for itself – and that’s what makes him one of the hottest country stars right now making music.
Zac Brown and the rest of the band helped make country music cross over into the mainstream in recent years and quite honestly, I couldn’t imagine any of my summer barbeques or trips to the beach without him.
So there you have it—fifteen of the hottest male country singers currently churning out hits in modern country music. Whether they’re winning awards, starring on TV shows and in films, or just stealing our hearts, making us wish our partners wrote songs about how much they love us, these country stars have cemented themselves as fan favorites and nothing is going to change that anytime soon.
