EXCLUSIVE: Bo Bice Cuts His Long Locks

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

If the new CD, “Different Shades of Blue” is anything like the new Bo look, it will be very hot. Bo has a wonderful voice and I was fortunate enough to hear the new music during his winter acoustic tour. Cannot wait to hear the finished CD.

I HATE IT.!!!!!!!!!!! Rather he is taking a new path of not, His hair is his image…Just because he is going country does not mean he needs to change his Image…

Just sad, very sad to me.

I love Bo. The hair does not make the man, nor does it affect his singing. If he’s happy, then I’m happy. I’m also anxious to buy his new album. Yippee! You go Bo!!!!
