About Kix Brooks

Kix Brooks is one-half of country music’s most successful duos of all time Brooks & Dunn. With 20 career chart-toppers and 30 million albums sold, they are the best-selling duo in country music history. Kix and his partner Ronnie Dunn were recently inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.  His extensive resume also includes three CMA “National Broadcast Personality of The Year” awards for American Country Countdown and Co-owner of Nashville’s award-winning winery Arrington Vineyards. Kix was also the first recipient of the CMA Humanitarian Award. Brooks & Dunn kicked off the year with the news that they would be releasing their now hugely successful, and critically-acclaimed collaboration project REBOOT. Featuring reimagined versions of their biggest hits with Kane Brown, Thomas Rhett, Brett Young, LANCO, Ashley McBryde, Brothers Osborne, Luke Combs, Midland, Cody Johnson, Jon Pardi, Tyler Booth and Kacey Musgraves, REBOOT debuted at No. One on Billboard’s Top Country Albums. 

The impressive feat marks the first time the duo has topped the album charts since 2009, while simultaneously earning their 10th Billboard 200 Top 10 album, the most of any country duo or group in the chart’s history. The duo are currently nominated for a GRAMMY for “Best Country Duo/ Group Performance” for their collaboration with Luke Combs on “Brand New Man” on the album. Brooks & Dunn also returned to the road for a string of headlining sets at fairs and festivals across the country, as well as a return to Vegas for their much-praised residency “Together in Vegas” with long-time friend Reba McEntire.
