We know why the devil really went down to Georgia. He was looking to buy a drink for these country divas.

LeAnn Rimes- We couldn't have guessed LeAnn Rimes would grow up to be such a hottie when she first released Blue in 1996, but we're sure glad she did.

Over the years, the country music songstress has released fifteen albums, won a few Grammys and Billboard Music Awards, and somehow manages to look hotter as she matures (hello, bikini photos!). Rimes' latest album, Lady and Gentleman, drops September 27, 2011.

Gwyneth Paltrow-
Gwyneth does her own singing as the troubled lead character in Country Strong, out now in wide release. She does a much better job than Clint Eastwood in Honkytonk Man. And looks far hotter, to boot. (Get it? Boot? Is this thing on?)

Taylor Swift-

We don't care if Kanye doesn't like her, we do. This 21-year-old sensation has become country music's biggest crossover act in recent years, earning MTV accolades, Grammy nods and a hosting spot on SNL. Plus, she can finally buy us a beer.

Get more Taylor Swift photos.

Jessie James-

This Georgia stunner—whose real name is Jessica Rose James—is the smokingest thing to hit country music since Willie Nelson rolled his first joint.

Julie Roberts-

Some honky-tonkers dance on bars. Others—like this beauty from Lancaster, South Carolina—would rather mix a bluesy twang with clever lyrics like, "Men and mascara/Always run." So if we DON'T run, then we'd be...LESS manly?

Shania Twain-

Canada's hottest songbird (sorry, Celine) redefined country music with her catchy, pop-rockin' ditties and sexy, midriff-flaunting getups. We know she just remarried, but we're still holding out hope...

Julianne Hough-

This two-time Dancing With the Stars champ left the show to pursue her other career—singing. Although the blonde bombshell has seen success on the country chart with her 2008 self-titled debut album (and will release the followup Wildfire later this year), we still miss her sexy and skimpy Dancing outfits. But we'll take her any way we can get her.

See more of Julianne in her photo gallery.

Carrie Underwood-
When she's not marrying professional hockey players, this American Idol winner is topping the country charts with songs like "Cowboy Casanova" and "Undo It."

Kellie Pickler-
This curvy blonde, former Sonic waitress and one-time American Idol contestant won over the hearts of country audiences with her sweet and sexy twang on songs like "Didn't You Know How Much I Loved You" and "Best Days of Your Life." Maybe she could help us out with that last song...

Cheyenne Kimball-

This mandolin-playin' hottie (and former MTV reality star; remember her show Cheyenne in 2006?) is making a name for herself as one quarter of the country group Gloriana.

Miranda Lambert-
This fiery Texas singer, who first came to fame on Nashville Star, has made a career with her pissed-off girlfriend songs like "Gunpowder & Lead." Consider yourself warned. (Though we like a little salt with our sweet.)

Sara Evans-
A hitmaker who emerged in the late '90s, Sara's on her way to a comeback thanks to the single "A Little Bit Stronger," taken from the Country Strong soundtrack. We guess the original title, "A Little Bit MILFier," must've been too risqué for country radio.

Hillary Scott-
This sultry songstress, part of the chart-topping group Lady Antebellum, comes by her hotness honestly. Her mom is '90s hottie/country singer Linda Davis.

Sunny Sweeney-
This Houston native gave up a promising career as a New York-based improv comic (yes, they can have promising careers) to take up residence in Austin and play before wild crowds at pool halls. She just recently landed on the country charts with "From a Table Away," the lead-off single from her second album.
