Kix Brooks’ musical career spans five decades, as a songwriter, a solo artist, and as half of Brooks & Dunn, the highest-selling and most decorated duo in country music history. Over 20 years, Brooks & Dunn sold more than 30 million records, won more than 75 major music awards, including Grammys and CMAs, and scored 20 No. 1 hits. Their Las Vegas residency at Caesar’s Palace with Reba McEntire ran nearly seven years, longer than any other country music residency in Vegas. The duo received one of music’s highest honors in 2019 when they were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Brooks was also recently recognized for his songwriting achievements as an inductee into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame’s 2023 class.  

In addition to his illustrious career as an artist, Brooks has hosted the syndicated radio program American Country Countdown for over 15 years. He was honored as CMA Broadcast Person of the Year three times and earned an ACM Radio Award for National Personality. Brooks is also a founding partner of Arrington Vineyards, a successful winery and events venue in Arrington, Tennessee. Through Brooks’ involvement with organizations such as the Country Music Association, Operation Finally Home, Veterans Matter, Tennessee Tourism Board and the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, he has become a widely revered advocate for many causes. In December 2014, Brooks was the first recipient of the Country Music Association’s Humanitarian Award, celebrating his unwavering dedication to the community.
