For the most part, mustaches have gone the way of the mullet, in that very few country men are willing to support a look that was as reliable as the cowboy hat in the 1980s and '90s. Alan Jackson held on to his until just recently, so we've included him in today's readers poll. Which country artist's mustache is your favorite?
Kix Brooks isn't the new guy in the video for his Joe Walsh-assisted song 'New to This Town.' He's more like the narrator who witnesses everything and follows the action. The clip also features Brooks as a character in the middle of the plot scenes, singing his song while events unfold around him. Then, things occur in reverse. Sadly, we don't get do-overs in life nor are we able to undo things once they've happened. But it's fun to pretend like we have that power or ability for a few minutes in a video for a country song that muses about what could or should be in life.
The lyrics to the current Kix Brooks’ single 'New to This Town were penned by the now solo artist, along with the help of famed songwriters Marv Green and Terry McBride. The song, which also features Joe Walsh, is currently in the Top 40 on the country singles chart and continues to be one of the most added songs at country radio week after week.
Kix Brooks has suffered a nasty vocal cord injury that forced him to cancel a show, but his old duet buddy was there to help him out. Scotty McCreery is set to return to the 'American Idol' stage for the first time in 10 months -- maybe he'll get to meet current season contestant Skylar Laine's boyfriend? We've learned she has one back home.
Kix Brooks has had to pull out of a scheduled show in Jacksonville, Fla. after bursting a vocal cord. Upon hearing the news, his old duet partner Ronnie Dunn graciously stepped in to replace 'New to This Town' singer.
Garth Brooks, Kix Brooks ... no relation. Still, one of these country legends almost changed his name to avoid confusion with the other. During Tuesday's press conference to announce the inductees into the Country Music Hall of Fame, Garth Brooks said fans came very close to knowing him by a different name.
As artists reach a certain point in their careers, the scope of what they can sing about narrows. Celebrity status makes it impossible for someone like Keith Urban to sing about picking up women at a bar, because he's both married and five years sober. Fans wouldn't buy it.
Kix Brooks will release his first solo single since the split of Brooks and Dunn in 2010. The country great has teamed up with Eagles' guitarist Joe Walsh to record 'New to This Town,' a song that will be released to radio on March 19.
