Big D and Bubba have been trying for months to get Producer Patrick to trim that nightmare of a beard. Well, he finally did, and he looks like a whole new man.

Just look at the before and after photo below. He's almost unrecognizable!

Patrick managed to hide in the production booth all morning, so when he finally stepped out to show off the new clean look, it came as a total shock. The guys were worried that Patrick's scary beard would embarrass them at the ACM Awards, but he may be the sharpest looking guy in the crew this year.

What do you think of Patrick's new look?
