During the commericals for Monk
the other night, I was flipping around the stations and came across CMT's countdown of the 40 Sexiest Country Videos of All-Time.
Now, it's been a long time since I really avidly watched country music videos, so a lot of the ones on this list were unfamiliar to me. But in looking at the list, I think they did a pretty good job. No surprise that Rascal Flatt's "I Melt" was up there in the top five--honestly, I expected it to be number one because of all the hype and publicity that surrounded it last year. I really do feel as though this list is very Toby-Keith-heavy, but he does seem to be the big country artist of the moment. I will agree that Chely Wright's "Never Love You Enough," Sara Evans "I Could Not Ask For More," and Deana Carter's "Strawberry Wine" were all very deserving to be on this list--in fact, I think that Chely Wright's "Never Love You Enough" could have been higher on the list and surely there was room on the list for "It Was" which I think it just a great video. And no shocker that the highest rated Shania Twain video is "Still The One." However, I was a bit disappointed to see her video for "You Win My Love" left off. I just really like that video--the images of Shania dancing about in tight leather pants...
...I'm sorry, where was I, again? As much as I like "Man, I Feel Like a Woman!" for its homage to the Robert Palmer videos of the 80s, I have to say that "You Win My Love" is, by far, the sexier video.
