Casey James Signature Long Locks Have Been Snipped!

Last night,Casey James showed up the the BMI Awards in Nashville sporting new cropped locks.

Casey has been itching to cut his signature long hair for a while now, but it’s become part of a look. Last year, Casey explained that the long hair was an accident at best.

My family has been really affected by cancer,” the Texas native tells The Boot. “My Nana died of cancer, my Pawpaw passed away May 11 of last year of cancer. My mom is a two-time cancer survivor, breast and thyroid. That’s just some of it; there are a lot of instances in my family.”

“When I grew my hair out to donate it, I didn’t have money or anything else to offer,” he says. “Then I went on ‘American Idol’ and it became an image thing, so it’s one of those situations where I can’t change it until people know who I am.”

Well, it looks like the “powers that be” gave Casey a green light to cut the curls. What do you think of Casey’s new look? I’m dying to see what it will look like even shorter.
