The PEOPLE magazine cover we most look forward to every year will hit newsstands Nov. 16, revealing the "Sexiest Man Alive." We don't know yet whose handsome mug will grace that cover, but we do know the magazine's pick for the sexiest man of the week: Chris Young!
The 27-year old country heartthrob tells PEOPLE he's single ... but not in a huge hurry to mingle. "My family is giving me hell," he laments. "My grandmother nudges me. She's like, 'So, anybody you're giving a ring to soon?' But I'm in a good spot right now. It's one of those things that will happen when it's meant to."
When Chris was asked his sexiest feature, he gave a different answer than he might have a few years back. "I stopped wearing a cowboy hat ... and people are like, 'Oh, you have hair!' As a guy, I'm like, 'Yeah, I've got teeth too!' But girls are like, 'I want to rub my fingers through your hair!'"
The Tennessee native, who celebrated his fifth No. 1 single with "You," insists sex appeal is more about chivalry than appearances ... no matter how great his hair is. Read more of PEOPLE's sexy chat with Chris in the Nov. 12 issue, which hits newsstands today (Nov. 2) and has fellow country stars Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton on its cover. (See below.)
