By now, you’ve likely seen Jake Owen‘s new haircut, which sent the country world into a tizzy because for as long as it’s known, the country singer’s been one of the long-haired head honchos of the genre.
Over the weekend, Owen gave his first interview since the haircut to KMLE (a CBS Radio station) at their Not-So-Silent Night and discussed his new locks, or lack thereof.
In the interview, Owen is told he looks fairly similar to his usual self from the front, but it’s his back that’s the real change.
“I don’t even know what the back looks like!” he exclaimed, doing a twirl for the camera to show it off. He added: “I’ll tell you what the weirdest thing for me is, is seeing my neck. I’ve never seen that before, you know?”
So why the cut?
“I don’t know, man,” Owen said. “My wife, she wanted a different man.”
