Luke Bryan is officially country music's sexiest man, according to People's special country issue. In the mag, the singer also reveals that confidence is the trait he finds sexiest in a woman, along with "the ability to wing it and the ability to get fancied up and pretty."

When asked what his wife, college sweetheart Caroline Boyer, sees as his worst trait, Bryan replied, "Probably talking on the cellphone. Or answering it during dinner." "The best thing for me is to leave it in the car and then I know I won't answer it," he said. "Whenever I'm like, 'I left my phone in the car,' she's like, 'Ooh, special!' "

'Rainbow's' pot of gold

LeVar Burton, who hosted and produced PBS' "Reading Rainbow" from 1983 to 2006, is succeeding in his goal to bring back the show that taught kids about the joys of reading. In one day of a Kickstarter campaign he launched Wednesday, Burton raised $1.1 million with the help of 23,000 donors. The funds will help create an online version available for a $5 monthly subscription and a free classroom version for low-income schools.
