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 really great. Blond is overpopulated these days. Go Kellie

I love it! Her hair color compliments her complexion. She’s got a mature look to her now. I say keep it up Kellie

I love it, but as others have said, it makes her look older. Better to take advantage of this color when she is young.

Don’t like it – makes her look older. Blonde suits her Complexion better.

Change is good for some people. Take a look at all the Female Blonde Singer’s we have out there.

It doesn’t look bad but it makes her look about 10 years older than what she actually is! I prefer the blonde!

I think it looks great! I did the very same thing and went from blonde to red. It’s fun to change things up!!
