When Luke Bryan
pulls up in his 1972 Ford Bronco for a morning photo shoot in Miami, he's rumpled and unshaven, wearing flip-flops and camo – but even disheveled he's got undeniable charm.
Put him beneath some palm trees in an unbuttoned tuxedo shirt showing a hint of bronzed chest and he's superstar sexy.
From his monster hits to his country boy shake, 37-year-old Bryan tops our list of sexy country men this year. PEOPLE Country sat down with the singer, who revealed all – from what he loves, to what makes him laugh, to something he really should leave behind.
What do you find sexy in a woman?
"Confidence, the ability to wing it and the ability to get fancied up and pretty. I love the whole girl-next-door thing, the whole thing of, you know you're pretty but not going too far with it."
What gets you laughing?
"Watching my boys [Bo, 6, and Tate, 3] do cute stuff. Tate had a baseball game yesterday and he was running the wrong way and doing all these things that had everybody in the stands just cracking up laughing. I don't know if he knows how cute he is, but he's having fun."
What would your wife Caroline say is your worst habit?
"Hmmm ... there are so many! Probably talking on the cell phone. Or answering it during dinner. The best thing for me is to leave it in the car and then I know I won't answer it. Whenever I'm like, 'I left my phone in the car,' she's like, 'Ooh – special!' "
