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

Some BIG country label should grab Bo up and promote him asap! He’s very loved and deserves big notice.

I adore Bo’s new look! I think the haircut looks great and frames his face nicely! I cannot wait for the new album “Different Shades of Blue”. The songs that I have heard from it so far sound awesome! May cannot come soon enough! Hope he does a tour to support the new album! Keep on rockin’ Bo!

Love, love, love it! For anyone who’s never been to one of Bo’s concerts…you are missing a treat. He loves what he does, but he never forgets to make sure his fans know that he’s up there because of them. He is an awesome guy and has an awesome talent. He is an A-1 class act. Love you Bo…you are the best!
