"People Country" magazine's list of the Hottest Country Guys of 2012 will be on newsstands tomorrow . . .  

BLAKE SHELTON grabbed the top spot . . . 

Here is what he said:  "I think it’s funny because there is nothing about me, if I was a girl, that I would think is sexy."

What did his wife Miranda say:   "The minute he opens his mouth and starts talking to you, he makes you smile.  That's what made me think, 'Oh my gosh, this guy is awesome.'"

Other country stars who made the list include . .

Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Chris Young, Kenny Chesney, Dierks Bentley and David Nail.
