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!

Not that I don’t like red hair, and Kellie you are beautiful no matter what, but it makes you look years older. On you, blonde is better!

Eve on

Im sorry but she just looks so unattractive these days. It’s not even the hair, something about her face. She looks plastic!

Brenda on

Love it. Love Kellie

You can never really evaluate these things from one picture. I prefer the blonde based on this pic, but if I saw her looking more casual and with a regular ‘do, I might dig it. Plus, blonde is so overdone in the hair-coloring community.

Also, it might help if she gave her color more depth with some lighter and darker highlights. All-over hair color can look flat after someone has had a variety of blonde highlights.

LOVE IT!!!!!!! She looks amazing, but then she almost always does. I think it also makes her look alot more credible and serious (in a good way!!)
