Some country cuties made it onto the annual Maxim Hot 100 list for 2012,  mixed in with A-list supermodels, actresses and pop artists.
Kellie Pickler landed at No. 72, with this description: "Seriously, America: You chose Taylor Hicks over Kellie on Season 5 of American Idol? We're moving to France."
Singer/actress Julianne Hough is at No. 47 after the magazine called her "the sexiest thing to happen to Footloose since the Kevin Bacon gymnastics scene."
And Taylor Swift is the highest ranking of the country stars, at No. 26.
Impressive! She beat out ladies like Rihanna, Eva Mendes and Jessica Biel. But in her good-natured ongoing competition with pop pal Katy Perry, Taylor lost this round. Katy finished at No. 4.
