My thoughts: He still looks like Shooter Jennings, who told me last year he’s been mistaken for Bice. (“I’ve had some homeless people think I’m Bo Bice. This was years ago,” Shooter said. “I’d be like, ‘Waaaaait, I’m not Bo Bice.'”) Also…not bad! With a new album “incorporating more country elements” out May 18, he was in the mood for a change. This one definitely works.
