kix brooks

Famed country musician Kix Brooks is setting out across the states to find America’s best steakhouses on Steak Out with Kix Brooks, premiering Tuesday, July 14th at 9:00pmET/6:00pmPT on Cooking Channel. While on the road touring as a part of country music duo Brooks & Dunn, he discovered that it was rare for a city not to have a steakhouse that put a unique spin on the classic steak, making it a cut above the rest. Big flavors and big meat take center stage, as Kix visits Dallas, Denver, New Orleans, New York City, Omaha and Washington D.C. to discover all of their delicious carnivorous offerings.

“Kix Brooks is a great addition to Cooking Channel as an aficionado of food and wine. Over the years, viewers have come to know him as a legendary country music artist. Now, on Steak Out with Kix Brooks, they get to meet a different side of him – Kix Brooks: the passionate meat-lover,” said Michael Smith, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Cooking Channel.

“We searched the country for some of the best steakhouse,” said Brooks.  “If there is one thing I love as much as music – it is a great steak, so I can’t wait to share with viewers what we found.”

Over the course of the six half-hour long episodes, Kix explores an assortment of steakhouses ranging from the traditional to the modern pushing culinary boundaries. On the premiere episode,Kix is in the heart of steak country to visit three local legends in Omaha, Nebraska. His first stop is at the family-owned and operated Johnny’s Café, which started as a small saloon nearly a hundred a years ago and is now a classic steakhouse serving up the juiciest prime rib in town. Just down the road, Kix gets a taste of Dario’s traditional European fare, including steak frites and a decadent chocolate cake made with dark Belgian beer. Last but not least, Kix checks out Gorat’s, a favorite amongst locals for their version of the quintessential Omaha dish – the whiskey steak.

Revered Country Music Hall of Fame member Reba presented the first CMA Foundation Humanitarian Award to acclaimed artist, radio personality, entrepreneur, and esteemed member of the CMA Board of Directors Kix Brooks at a prestigious evening in his honor Monday at City Winery in Nashville.

“Can you imagine what it feels like to be me tonight?” Brooks asked the crowd as he accepted the Award. “But ultimately it’s not about me; it’s about every person in this room who is putting their heart into something meaningful and something significant in their community.”

On hand to honor Brooks was fellow CMA Board member and artist Chris Young, as well as representatives from the numerous charitable partners Brooks has worked with over the years including the CMA Foundation, Louisiana Tech, Monroe Harding Children’s Home, Operation Finally Home, the USO, and Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital.

“Thanks to his contributions in the creation of the CMA Foundation and in the birth of CMA Instrumental Healthcare, as well as to the efforts he has volunteered to the other great causes represented here tonight, Kix’s philanthropic endeavors will be as highly regarded as his many musical contributions,” said Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “CMA is honored to be able to present our first ever CMA Foundation Humanitarian Award to Kix Brooks.”

The CMA Foundation Humanitarian Award was developed by the CMA Awards and Recognition Committee and approved by the CMA Foundation. The Award recognizes an individual who has served as a humanitarian through community leadership, financial support, personal volunteerism, and advocacy.
Brooks has been an active member of the CMA Board of Directors since 1998. During this 17-year period, Brooks contributed to the unprecedented growth of the organization and was instrumental in creating and developing several initiatives that have touched the lives of countless members of the music community including the CMA Songwriters Series, which just celebrated its 10th anniversary, and the creation of an affordable medical insurance program for CMA members known as CMA Instrumental Healthcare.

It was his leadership and vision that created CMA’s “Keep the Music Playing” program, which was the forerunner of the CMA Foundation. The program receives funding through CMA Music Festival with half of the net proceeds from the event given as grants to support music education programs across the country on behalf of the artists who perform for free. To date, the CMA Foundation has donated more than $11 million to this worthy cause.
In addition to being a true humanitarian for CMA, Brooks also serves on the Board of the Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital, Monroe Harding Children’s Home, Tennessee Tourism Board, Nashville Convention Center and Visitors Bureau, Blue Ribbon Committee, Operation Finally Home, and Veterans Matter.
