 Born and raised in Shreveport, Louisiana, Kix Brooks was influenced by a variety of musical and began performing at age 12. It was not long after that, when Brooks tried his hands at songwriting. Artists like the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, John Conlee and Highway 101 all scored number one hits thanks to Brooks’ songs.


In 1990, Brooks teamed with Ronnie Dunn to form Brooks & Dunn, who are known as the most successful duo in the history of country music. Together, the pair have sold more than 30 million records, won more than 75 industry awards, had 23 number one hits and set a new record with their 41st top 10 single. Brooks entered radio in 2006 when he took over hosting the syndicated radio program, American Country Countdown.

He has also served as President and Chairman of the Country Music Association (CMA), and today, he is the local spokesperson for Monroe Harding Children’s Home. Brooks has been married to his wife Barbara for 30 years, and they have two children Molly, 24, and Eric, 21.
