Say, is it just me or does everybody look really, really clean today?

Seriously, some of Country Weekly’s scruffiest guys (including yours truly) have removed their whiskers as part of No Shave November ( to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis.

Country artists like Randy Houser, Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood and Thompson Square’s Keifer are also participating.

And here’s the best part: We want you, our readers, to be on our team. It’s really easy.

  1. Click the button below to sign up (registration costs $30) and join our team.
  2. Put your razor on the shelf until the end of November!
  3. Check on our progress at:

Female readers, you can join in the fun, too, but we won’t hold you to the no shaving thing if you’d rather not.

Rest assured, you’ll see plenty of progress photos from us throughout the month of November (which will be really embarrassing for some of us) and we’d love to see some of yours as well.

In 2011, No Shave November raised more than $38,000, and in 2012 the bar was raised to an astounding $138,000 for a worthy cause. St. Jude is one of the world’s premier pediatric cancer research centers and aims to find cures for children stricken with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. Families are never asked to pay for treatment not covered by insurance.
