A casual, candid video reveals this country star has made a major change Instagram/@traceadkins

It was as much of a trademark as Willie Nelson’s braids, and we sure didn’t think he’d ever get rid of it, but it appears that Trace Adkins has lobbed off his signature ponytail.

In a video clip on his Instagram page, Trace is seen shopping at a Home Depot store. Dressed casually in track pants, sneakers, a t-shirt and baseball cap, he’s just trying to check out the merchandise and is in awe of many of the items. But what we’re in awe of is how he casually just lets it slide that his super-long curls have been cut off.

But you know what? He looks good!

While he pushes his cart along, we get a look at that handsome Louisiana fella from different angles, and in every one of them he still looks like the handsome country star that he is.

We aren’t sure who shot this video, but it appears to be a loved one as Trace smiles, rather than grumbles, as he asks them to stop taping his shopping excursion.

It was a rare weekend off for the country star who has had a busy tour season. In fact, he has shows on his schedule all the way until December. But he has also released a new single, “Still a Soldier,” that he’s promoting. No word on whether he’ll be adding songs from his incredible Christmas album, “The King’s Gift,” in his November and December shows.
