Kix Brooks says he doesn’t like to do anything for too long that he doesn’t enjoy naturally. Fine wine and steak are things he’ll always enjoy, but television? The singer and one half of Brooks and Dunn will soon find out, as Season 1 of ‘Steak Out With Kix Brooks’ debuts this weekend.
“I’ve always liked to hear myself talk, I guess,” he half-jokes. “Obviously, the thing I’ve loved about it is getting to hang out with my friends and people I’ve toured with and talking to them. Then seeing how the songs are doing and bragging on them, songs I like and telling people, ‘Ah man I remember when we did this or that.’ Again it goes back to that sharing thing.”
“I’m sort of thinking of hooking up with my Louisiana friends, from Kenny Wayne Shepherd to Wayne Toups and maybe doing a Nashville/Gumbo sort of thing.”
Look for ‘Steak Out with Kix Brooks’ to air on the Cooking Channel on Sunday (Nov. 2nd) at 8PM ET. As for his musical pursuits, Brooks says he’s writing with an album in mind.
Tyler Farr’s new video for ‘A Guy Walks Into a Bar’ has him playing guitar outside of a dimly lit tunnel, then serving up some drinks and breaking up a bar fight, and at the end, he gets the girl. Phew! Check it out!!
