In fact, he looked pretty different. How different? Well, okay--he actually had a mullet!
Yep, it's true. Shelton--who will be co-hosting the Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday--sported the infamous hairstyle for several years, starting at the beginning of his career in 2001. Not exactly the Shelton we know today, right?
By 2007, Shelton had cropped the mullet and began to wear clothes that fit a little better. He's since refined his look to a tee, scoring him tons of female fans as well as several magazine covers touting his "hot" status this year.
Here's what he looks like today, and what he wore as co-host of last year's ACM Awards.
While he's definitely more on-trend these days, we think if anyone could pull off the mullet look, it's a good-looking guy like Shelton. What do you think?Reba McEntire as co-hosts, will be broadcast live on CBS April 1 at 8 p.m. ET. In addition to hosting, Shelton is a contender for the entertainer and male vocalist of the year awards.
