He's sexy and he knows it. Luke Bryan, who was named People Country's Sexiest Man Alive in 2014, isn't afraid to flaunt his good looks -- or to get a little goofy.

To Bryan, his sex appeal is part of what makes him a well-rounded artist, but he's not overly concerned by it: “You want women to think of you in a sexy manner,” he says.

“It’s all part of the business. It drives ticket sales. It’s all a part of it," Bryan adds. "My focus is trying to make great music and putting on great shows, and whatever happens beyond that is a bonus to me.”

Still, as they say, beauty is only skin deep, which is why we're just as impressed with the singer's Southern-boy charm, sense of humor -- which he really gets to show off when he's co-hosting the ACM Awards -- and genuinely good, caring personality. Outward sexiness is great, but it's what's on the inside that really counts.

Scroll through the gallery below to see a few pictures of Bryan looking sexy, funny ... and both at the same time.
