Participants of the fourth annual No Shave November benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital united at the CMA building in Nashville on Friday, Oct. 31, to capture their freshly shaved faces before the competition was underway. Music industry and radio station professionals, along with some of today’s hottest country stars have thrown away their razors for the month, and are allowing their facial hair to grow freely.

No Shave November is using all platforms to encourage the music industry to recruit as many men (and dedicated women) as possible to join the team, and to donate at least $30 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This year, Lady Antebellum’s Dave Haywood, has been appointed as 2014 Chairman of the Beard. In 2013, NSN raised an impressive $220,000 for the organization, with $396,000 raised over the past three years to support St. Jude. Capping off the campaign, awards will be given for best beard, the worst beard and many more during the celebrated “Beard Bash” in Music City on Dec. 1.
