E.L. James’ book Fifty Shades of Grey is all the rage right now. In fact, the book made such an impact on women (much to the excitement — literally — of men) that those who saw fifty shades of green in the form of dollar signs hurriedly turned the trilogy into a series of films.
Cast as the lead character, a bondage-loving businessman named Christian Grey, was Jamie Dornan; an Irish model, musician, and actor. While Dornan is a gorgeous and talented male who nailed the part of Grey, we couldn’t help but wonder if some of our country music favorites could likewise fit the bill. And, we can’t say that we would hate to see some of these southern fellas in a few … compromising … positions!
Here is Country Music #CMchat’s 7 Quick Clicks – Fifty Shades of Grey edition:
1. Eric Church
Though Church is not exactly the artist most likely to propel himself into the spotlight, we can’t help but think that there is a bit of mystery behind those often-worn shades of his. Or, those fifty shades of his …
2. Charlie Worsham
Sweet Charlie Worsham. He’s so lovable that we can’t help but want to love him right into this role. “Could it be” we would find ourselves a whole new, and darker, shade of Worsham to love?
3. Brett Eldredge
Brett Eldredge may be busy falling in love to the beat of the music, but is he really too busy to let us fall in love with him to the beat of a box office smash hit? “Don’t ya” think he would be perfect in this role? Don’t ya?
4. Jake Owen
While Jake Owen has spent some time “Beachin'”, it’s clear he has also spent some time gymin’. So much, in fact, that he and Dornan can enter into an ab-off and Owen stands a fighting chance at winning the coveted Grey tie at the end.
5. Thomas Rhett
Thomas Rhett may be head over heels in love with this gorgeous wife, but he makes no secret that he wants to get him some of that; and we wouldn’t mind watching him do so in the role of Christian Grey. That might actually make me wanna see this movie …
6. Sam Hunt
If Sam Hunt walked into a casting meeting, we are pretty certain that the hunt would end right there. Signed, sealed, delivered, and tied up — he’s yours.
7. Dierks Bentley
We know Dierks Bentley is down for a mile high good time, and he would certainly make the ladies go all “5-1-5-0” if he took on the role of Christian Grey. Undoubtedly women across the country would be holding on — tightly to the armrests of their movie theater seats — if Bentley was cast in this role.
