Taste of Country's March Man-Ness competition begins right now. The field of 32 country studs has been divided into four quadrants, with eight artists in each battling to be named country music's sexiest male. First up? Country music's Lady Killers. 

These eight country hunks will duel two at a time to get to Round 2, the Sweet (soo sweet) 16. Luke Bryan takes on Billy Currington, Keith Urban battles Blake Shelton, Jake Owen tangles with Jason Aldean and Chris Young squares off against Tim McGraw.

Of course, it's the fans who do the true battling, as March Man-Ness is decided entirely by your voting. Pick your favorites in each of the four Lady Killer matchups below, and keep an eye out for the other three brackets on the way.

Round 1 of the Taste of Country March Man-ness will end at 11:59PM ET on March 16, 2014. The ultimate winner will be announced on April 8.
