It's official: Blake Shelton is one of the sexiest men alive. The 2012 CMA Entertainer of the Year has now made it into People's coveted Sexiest Man Alive issue not one, but three times.

The country crooner was also noted for his attractive features in the magazine's 2008 and 2010 lists.

Of course, Shelton's wife Miranda Lambert already knows that her husband is one of the world's hottest guys. He can thank his great head of hair, piercing blue eyes and bright smile for that. But she also told the magazine that he is "very caring and loyal" -- and that's what gives him sex appeal.

The 'Honey Bee' hitmaker lost the top spot on the Sexiest Men Alive list to Channing Tatum -- no doubt thanks to his role in the movie 'Magic Mike.' However, Shelton was listed as the sexiest man in Oklahoma on's list of hot guys in each state.

'The Voice' coach isn't the only one holding down the fort in the collection of good looking country dudes. Brad Paisley's boyish good looks scored him a spot on the Sexiest Men Alive list, too, representing his home state as the best-looking man in all of West Virginia. There's a joke in there somewhere, but we'll hold back.
