If I played for the other team…

Jennifer Nettles

Total crush on Jennifer Nettles, the lead singer of Sugarland.  Combination of voice, guitar-skills, songs (particularly “Stay” and “All I Want to Do“), and natural style.  First became aware of her from the “Stay” video, which I love due to its simplicity, just footage of her and her guitar-playing partner.  No special effects, no bikini-clad honeys, no six-inch heels, no expensive set.  And as she sings, her eyes fill with tears until she has to stop to compose herself.  Oh, heartstrings.  Tale has it that she genuinely teared up due to the lyrics and instead of cutting the film, the videographer decided to continue shooting and they ended up using that footage.
