  • Blake Shelton shared a throwback photo on Instagram from the 2003 ACM Awards, donning his once signature mullet.

  • The 44-year-old caused a stir among fans who had differing opinions about whether or not he should bring back the look.

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are happy anywhere together, including at the 2020 ACM Awards.

Ahead of their performance Wednesday night at the highly anticipated country show, Blake shared a photo of himself on Instagram from the 2003 ACM Awards and asked the masses a very important question: Should he bring back his signature mullet hairstyle? And well, the responses were mixed to say the least.

“Y’all think I should bring back this look for the @acmawards? #Throwback,” he wrote.

Fans of The Voice coach wasted no time giving their two cents in the comments section. A quick glimpse showed a clear divide between followers who argued for different looks.

“Absolutely Not...No...No...You're a gorgeous looking man do not bring back that ridiculous hairstyle,” one person wrote. “I love you but no ❤️,” another added. “NOOOOO!!! For the love of God.. NO!!” a different fan said.

Meanwhile, there were others who wouldn’t mind seeing Blake's old 'do. “Yes!!! Bring on the mullet!!! 🤠,” a follower commented. “This is the Blake Shelton that I [fell] in love with ❤️🔥❤️,” another said. “OMG!! I love you 💗 Yes 100% 😘💕,” a different commenter added.

Still, some fans only wanted to know one other person’s opinion. “I would ask Gwen 😂,” someone wrote. “Um I would ask Gwen what she thinks about that 😂,” a follower said.

Honestly, she probably wouldn't be opposed to it. As folks may remember, the “Hollaback Girl” singer gave the country star a quarantine mullet this spring. Gwen recreated the "business in the front, party in the back” look and added two stripes on the sides for a modern twist.

We’ll just have to wait and see what Blake decides to do!
