On American Idol, Bo Bice was known for his rockin’ covers, mellow mood and, of course, extra-long locks. But with a new album, 3, due out May 18th — not to mention three young sons at home — the singer has decided to change things up a bit with newly shoulder-length locks. “I have a new project with a new style of music, incorporating more country elements,” he tells PEOPLE.com. “With all these new aspects going on in my career, it was just another thing that I felt needed a bit of change.” So Bice chopped his lengthy hair, cutting off five inches recently. And that’s not his first cut, having previously chopped off 10 inches a little bit before that, donating the hair to Locks of Love. Bo explains of the two cuts, “It was a gradual change for this long-haired countryboy.” For fans who worry the haircut signifies major changes for the singer, fear not; he assures PEOPLE.com that it’s just “new music, new look,” but the “same Bo Bice.” Tell us: What do you think of Bo’s new shoulder-length do? — Kate Hogan

I’ve always loved Bo’s long hair (especially fun to photograph at live concerts as he flies all over the stage). I never thought I’d by happy to hear that he cut his beautiful hair, but I have to admit that he’s looking even more HAWT than ever, and more current!! Bo is my favorite entertainer… and even more importantly, I love him for the wonderful soul that he is. I’m really looking forward to his new album!!

[…] The “Idol” season 4 runner-up has gotten rid of the halfway-down-his-back mane he had on “Idol” and for several years after that (the picture at left is from 2008) and is now rocking a shoulder-length, Keith Urban-ish haircut. (You can see the new ‘do at People.com.) […]
