Kellie Pickler may be one of country’s most iconic blondes — she’s even impersonated Dolly Parton — but for now, she’s joining a less represented segment of the music community: redheads! The bombshell debuted her newly auburn locks on the red carpet of the CMA Awards tonight, having carefully tucked them under a hat for Parton’s Live from London DVD premiere party on Tuesday night. Pickler joked of the attention her new do is getting on the red carpet, saying, “It seems to be the thing to talk about.” She also gave a shout-out to legendary country redhead Reba McEntire, suggesting that she was joining her ranks since “we’ve got enough blondes in country.” But, she did admit to PEOPLE that she is still adjusting to her new do. “The hair doesn’t make the person, but it has been a shocker. I wake up in the morning and walk by the mirror and I’m like, ‘Who’s that!’ I thought someone broke into my house!” Pickler did manage to find the upside, explaining that, “It’s been interesting with red hair cause you can’t wear the same things. It’s an excuse to go shopping.” What do you think of Kellie’s new hair color? Vote in our poll below, and see all news, photos and more from the CMAs!

She looks better as a blond . . . she’s almost unrecognizable as a redhead. But not bad. I just think she looks better as a blond :)

Kellie what have you done. You’re hair was georgeous. Whomever talked you into the color change was not your friend nor was the person who selected your dress for the presentation. Plz give us back the real Kellie from the Am. Idol days. Sweet, innocent & funny. The envigorating package that we savoured.

She looks beautiful with red hair but she is definitely meant to be a blonde! It makes her stand out more and look more fun.

Brycee on

I think she looks cute either way
