Listen to Thompson Square on iHeartRadio

Thompson Square's Keifer Thompson will be getting hairy this fall.  The country star has been tapped to serve as the honorary Chairman of the Beard for the 2013 "No Shave November" charity campaign. 

The event encourages participants to scrap their razors for a month to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.  Keifer is calling the appointment "the most absurdly wonderful recognition" he's ever received. 

But the singer admits he's not sure if he feels "honored to be the scraggly face of this thing."  He explains that supporting St. Jude is something he and all participants should "be incredibly proud of," but adds that logging the accomplishment by "spending a month as a sloth is pretty ridiculous." 

But Thompson also took part in the event last fall.  The 2012 "No Shave November" raised over $138,000 for St. Jude.  More than $17,000 of that total came from Team Thompson Square.
