One of Country music’s most versatile entertainer’s Kix Brooks invites legendary host Dan Rather to his Nashville award-winning Arrington Vineyards tomorrow for a candid episode of The Big Interview (2/28 at 7:00P CT on AXS-TV). As Brooks “showcases his love of entertaining and his Southern roots” (American Profile), he also openly unravels the compelling personal backstory which led him to become one-half of the best-selling duo in country music history, Brooks & Dunn. Brooks also gives an impromptu wine-tasting and tour to Rather, while detailing the process behind his first-ever cookbook, Cookin’ It With Kix: The Art of Celebrating and The Fun of Outdoor Cooking.
In addition, Brooks and Rather discuss the extension of the longest-running Country music residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, Reba, Brooks & Dunn: Together in Vegas, which launched its 2017 dates this past weekend. As “two of Country music’s most iconic acts” (Billboard) left fans with “goosebumps of an evangelical tent revival meeting that won thunderous applause and a standing ovation” (Las Vegas Sun), it showed “the collaboration is a culmination of the friendship and musical admiration Reba and Brooks & Dunn have shared since first touring together in 1993,” (Music Row).
Alongside his success with Brooks & Dunn, Brooks continues his career as a solo touring/recording artist while simultaneously exploring new paths. The CMA Humanitarian award-winner’s extensive resume includes lead acting and film producer credits, three CMA “National Broadcast Personality of The Year” awards for American Country Countdown, a Cooking Channel series “Steak Out with Kix Brooks” and co-owner of Nashville’s award-winning winery Arrington Vineyards, which was named the top Tennessee winery of the year for the third time by at the New York International Wine Festival.
