I don't know what I was expecting from Kix Brooks' new album 'New To This Town', but I don't honestly think I was expecting to love any of his music.
Not sure why that is, but it's the truth.
I'm happy to report that I love, love, love Kix's new single Bring It On Home.
Definitely makes me think I need to take the time and listen to the rest of the songs on the album.
The Boot recently got the chance to follow Kix Brooks for a day and see what goes on in a typical day.
Last year, Kix Brooks shot a new movie called 'To Kill a Memory' in which he plays a lawman who robs a bank and ends up going to prison. He then has to escape from prison when he learns that his fellow bank robbers may be going after his wife. Now the movie has an official premiere date.
"To Kill A Memory" has been chosen as a "2012 Early 10 Films" by the Austin Film Festival and will premiere there next month. The festival runs from October 18-25 in Austin, Texas.
Randy Houser also has a part in the movie, but there's no word on if he will be at the premiere. I also can't find any sort of general release info for the movie so I'm not sure if it's headed to theaters, TVs, or DVD and when that might be.
Check out the movie's trailer below. You can also check out loads of photos from the movie shoot here.
Set ye old DVRs everyone because Kix Brooks is headed to ABC's Good Morning America on Wednesday, September 12th. He will perform the first single, Bring It On Home from his new solo album “New To This Town.”
According to his website, Kix's new single will hit radio September 3.
Penned by Kix with his longtime friends and songwriting buddies (and BMI Country Songwriters of the Year) Rhett Akins and Dallas Davidson, Kix says that “‘Bring It On Home’ is really about a guy just gettin’ back to what matters with love. I always liked the soulful attitude of this song and the kind of natural feelin’.”
Brooks adds that “Bring It On Home” is a song that rings true for him in lyrics like “all my life I’ve been running,” and Kix says, “I’ve been married a long time, but when I met Barbara, I kind of had that feeling, because bein’ a musician and livin’ in bars, it was that point, meetin’ her, when, you know, it’s like, I think I may be ready to give up this lifestyle and try somethin’ that matters a little bit more.”
Kix Brooks recently sat down with US 103.5 in Florida and answered a few random questions for them.
Be sure to watch if you've ever wondered how he keeps his mustache so darn Tom Selleck-ish.
