List of the hottest women Alright, you got your sexy rock vixens, hip-hop honeys, and pop divas. But are there sexy women in country music? Well we all know about the male studs--guys like Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, etc. Make no mistake about it though: the women are even more sexy than the men. They have lovely voices, can drink you under the table, and take no mess from nobody. Sure they're lovely to look at, but if you cross them--all hell will break loose! They might set your house on fire (Miranda Lambert), ruin your car (Carrie Underwood), kidnap you (Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland), or just plain embarass you on national television (Taylor Swift). Then, you have classic beauties like LeAnn Rimes, Shania Twain, and Faith Hill who have been around for many years and still retained their class and sex appeal. Either way, these down home girls earned a spot on their list for their mix of talent, sex appeal, and southern hospitality. Country fans everywhere can vote on which Southern Belle is the sexiest in country music.

<![CDATA[The All Time Best Neo-Traditionalist Country Artists]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/the-all-time-best-neo-traditionalist-country-artists/revconradhutchings
Neo-Traditionalist Country refers to country artists that play in the style of hardcore traditional country such as honky tonk, yet they are essentially revivalists. Since they are revivalists, they bring a variety of contemporary techniques -- such as pop/rock or singer/songwriter influences -- to their music, yet these are always subservient to the dominant strain of country music. Furthermore, where new traditionalists brought the sound of traditional country back to the mainstream, neo-traditionalists always operated on the fringes.

<![CDATA[The Best One-Hit Wonders of the 1970s]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/one-hit-wonders-of-the-1970s/rockboy
One hit wonders from the 1970s, listed by performer. This is a list of popular 70s songs from bands or artists who only had one single reach the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States. Many of these bands and artists had extensive careers, either in the US or other countries, they just didn't ever have another single reach the Top 40 after the songs on this list.Vote up and down your faves!

Many of the bands and artists listed had popular hits in their native countries. For example, Shocking Blue's only breakthrough song in America was the now-iconic "Venus," but they had a number of successful hits in their native Netherlands. Additionally, many of the artists on the list had massive success with other groups or projects. Lou Reed's only major single as a solo artist in the '70s was "Walk on the Wild Side," but of course he's more famous for his work with The Velvet Underground. Ace Frehley makes the list for his single "New York Groove," but had other singles as the lead guitarist for KISS. Finally, some artists on the list just had lengthy careers but a niche audience, such as Warren Zevon (whose "Werewolves in London" proved to be his only Top 40 single.) Other acts were simply flash-in-the-pans who had a big moment in the spotlight, then faded into obscurity.

Who are some one hit wonders from the 1970s? This is an attempt to list every one hit wonder artist of the '70s. Think you have an example of a 1970s hit that was the only Top 40 US single for a band or artist? Let me know in the comments!

<![CDATA[The Best Alternative Metal Artists of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/the-best-alternative-metal-artists-of-all-time/revconradhutchings
At its outset, alternative metal was a style united by its nonconformist sensibility rather than any immediately classifiable sound. Heavy metal was at the core of the music, but the bands were too offbeat and their influences too eclectic to fit into the thrash underground, so their main audiences were mostly alternative fans who liked heavy guitar rock.
