So as the Pistol Annies say “there’s somethin’ ’bout a boy from the south,” right? I think most of us can agree that a southern twang and a guitar can make any girl’s heart melt…especially when that guitar is in the hands of one of America’s hottest country stars. Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Hunter Hayes, Jake Owen, Brett Eldredge, Dustin Lynch, Easton Corbin…and the list goes on. There are just so many hotties to choose from! But which ones do us ladies have a chance (the slightest, tiniest, most miniscule chance….but STILL a chance) with?? Well I’m here to break that down for you so we can all weed out the taken ones and get on the path to looooove.
So here it is…..your list of eligible bachelors and the list of the taken ones to make us all a little (or extremely make-you-wanna-sit-in-a-corner-and-cry-all-day) jealous…
(And by that I mean unmarried….considering the news changes so frequently they may be dating but that’s just a minor road block. As far as we all know they’re not married or engaged…so ready, set, swooooon!)
This 21 year old is quickly gaining more and more fame and praise…and he wants some lucky lady to make him feel wanted….and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t dying for that to be me…like really badly…really really badly. Okay moving on…
This “Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck” singer has mentioned how his dedication to his career is what stops him from getting into a relationship, but I’m sure if the right girl came around that could easily change. I’m also sure he wouldn’t have a problem finding a girl…who wouldn’t want to be serenaded with “Hey Pretty Girl” all the time!
…Chris Young, Scotty McCreery, Brett Eldredge, Dustin Lynch, Casey James, Greg Bates, Reid Perry (The Band Perry), Neil Perry (The Band Perry), and Tyler Hubbard (Florida Georgia Line) are also among our bachelors. Then there’s Brian Kelley (Florida Georgia Line) who I would also be totally okay with if for some crazy reason it didn’t work out with Hunter.
The Kind-Of-But-Not-Really Bachelors (AKA The Engaged)
These southern boys are already in a committed relationship/engagement, but that’s merely another roadblock…not quite as minor as the bachelors but still a roadblock we can all make it through (or crash through at high speed). I’m just kidding…I’m sure all these men are happy and we should all respect that even if the jealousy eats us alive.
Brantley Gilbert is engaged to the beautiful and talented Jana Kramer who is one of his fellow country stars. She was also the hilarious ‘Alex Dupre’ on my all-time favorite TV show, One Tree Hill. So basically I approve, Brantley…you can now proceed in your relationship. Stephen Barker Liles (Love and Theft) proposed to Jenna Michelle Kennedy, his longtime girlfriend, back in May. Tom Gossin (Gloriana) has been engaged to his love, Jaime Moffett, for over a year now so I’m assuming they’ll be a part of the married list soon!
These men are already taken…which means off-limits…for the most part.
The only married couple without children that I have on this list (and really the only one that’s needed considering they are the best couple ever) is Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert! This amazing/perfect/awesome/incredible couple wed in 2011 and have been adorable ever since. They have even addressed divorce rumors saying that divorce is not an option…so hallelujah! We won’t have to suffer through their divorce anytime soon…I like to live vicariously through them if you can’t already tell.
The Married With Kids
If the marriage certificate doesn’t seal the deal then kids sure do! These are the ones who are totally and completely 100% off-limits to the non-homewreckers, which I’m hoping is the majority.
He is an exception on this list, though, because he recently filed for divorce from his high school sweetheart and wife of 11 years, Jessica Ussery, after a cheating scandal. So do I add him to the bachelor list? He did act like like quite the bachelor back in September I suppose…but either way he was once married…and on a more positive note has two daughters! Him and his future ex-wife have Keeley Williams and Kendyl Williams together.
To all women’s dismay, Luke married Caroline Boyer in 2006 and has two sons, Thomas Boyer Bryan and Tatum Christopher Bryan.
I think everyone is aware of the beautiful couple that Tim and Faith Hill are, especially with their 3 beautiful daughters, Gracie Katherine, Maggie Elizabeth and Audrey Caroline. So basically they are the most beautiful family in the world and we should all aspire to be them…and also accept the fact that we never will be.
Keith is another one of the most beautiful men/human beings in the world. Plus, he’s from Australia! And everyone who has ever known me knows that that makes me love him a million times more considering I have the biggest obsession with Australia…like the BIGGEST obsession…it might even be unhealthy but that’s okay. He married an equally beautiful and also Australian woman we all know and love…Nicole Kidman! Together they have 2 daughters, Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret.
Brad Paisley married actress Kimberly Williams and has 2 sons, William Huckleberry and Jasper Warren. Toby Keith, the highest paid country star and red solo cup partier, has been married to Tricia Lucus since 1984 and together they have 2 daughters, Shelley and Krystal, and 1 son, Stelen. Eric Church married his wife, Katherine Blasingame in 2008, and has son, Boone McCoy. Dierks Bentley makes his “Home” with wife, Cassidy Black, and 2 daughters, Evelyn Day and Jordan Catherine. Jake Owen would go anywhere (West Virginia baby I don’t care, Mexico on a wild hair, have you ever seen California?…okay I’m getting a little carried away…moving on…) with his wife of a little over a year, Lacey Buchanan, and infant daughter Olive Pearl. Eric Gunderson (Love and Theft) married Emily Hagar in 2010 and had son, Camden William, this year in 2013. To end the list of married men with children is Lee Brice. He uses his own “love like crazy” advice with his wife, Sarah Reevely. They got married in April 2013 and together they have a 3 year old son named Takoda.
So there you have it…your eligible and not so eligible country men! I know it’s hard to choose from such an amazing list of these southern hotties so as the Pistol Annies say, “man, I think I might just have to love them all!”
So grab your cowboy hat and cowboy boots and get movin’ ladies! These bachelors won’t be single forever!
