Maxim Magazine and its website have a pictorial on their thirteen hottest women in country music. The first woman in a list I am told was in no particular order was Gwyneth Paltrow. (?) Does singing in a movie about country music and having the songs played on radio make her a country music star?? If you answer yes, then she's a no-brainer for this list. The other actual country ladies on the list:

Taylor Swift

Jessie James

Julie Roberts

Shania Twain

Julienne Hough

Carrie Underwood

Kellie Pickler

Cheyenne Kimball of Gloriana

Miranda Lambert

Sara Evans

Hillary Scott

Sunny Sweeney

All the ladies are pictured in publicity-type shots, not the typical Maxim state of sort-of clothed. I would provide you a link of the pictoral, but there's a lot of other Maxim content there that only sportscasters should see. By the way, I only read Maxim for the articles, like this one!
