Should A Man Color His Hair? I Say “Why Not?” [AUDIO]

OK, I said it.  You got a problem with that? (Sorry, I’m a little testy, but it’s been the subject the entire morning, and I’m getting a little tired of defending my decision!)

Like I said, I’m not ashamed to show it off  There are many who “tweak” their hair color and would never admit it.  (But even if I didn’t want people to know, I work with a few people who would make sure that thousands of you are aware of it, so I might as well go with it! LOL)

It became the subject of one of our “Daily Dilemmas” today (a feature that we do each morning starting at 6:20 am, by the way). 
I Googled this topic, by the way  and found an interesting statistic.  According to the
“While the number of men over 18 who color their hair doubled from 1999 to 2010, from 3 percent to 6 percent, among men age 50 to 64 the rate has grown even more, from 3 percent to 10 percent, according to Multi-sponsor Surveys, a research”
 So I’m definitely not the only one.  Just the only one brave enough to admit it on radio!  Now I feel better about myself.  Which is the whole reason for doing something like this, now isn’t it?
PS.  I’ve always been a little defensive about my hair.  I’ve sung about it often over the years.  Here’s one example.  This is a parody of George Strait’s “The Chair” (a song that came out in 1982, although I recorded this back in 1991, but it still shows my age, and will show yours if you happen to remember this! )

So do you color your hair?  Come on, admit it!  Why, (or why not?)  Would love to know!
