We might have ranked her two spots higher, but we're a tad biased. In any case, Carrie Underwood, the 23-year old Oklahoma singing sensation who rose to fame on American Idol, was ranked the third-hottest country singer in a reader poll conducted by Country Weekly magazine.
The only crooners to top Carrie were the venerable Faith Hill, 38, and Sara Evans, 35. Rounding out the top five were Martina McBride and Shania Twain.
Carrie recently won a pair of Academy of Country Music Awards, taking home Single Record of the Year honors for "Jesus, Take the Wheel" as well as the award for Best New Female Artist. She was also named to Teen People's "25 Hottest Stars Under 25" list along with American Idol's first-ever winner, Kelly Clarkson.
