However, Josh Thompson is a pretty good sport when it comes to explaining why he chose to chop off his famous ponytail, which can be seen on the cover of his latest full-length, "Turn It Up." As it happens, Thompson has no explanation deeper than he had been thinking about making a change. (Hey, even Willie Nelson cut off his fa...  | More »
