Kix Brooks to be Inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame
Kix Brooks was one half of legendary country music duo Brooks & Dunn. Popular singles featuring Brooks on lead vocals include, “Lost and Found,” and “Rock My World (Little Country Girl),” and number one hit, “You’re Gonna Miss Me When I’m Gone.”
Brooks and Dunn won more Country Music Association awards and Academy of Country Music awards than any act in the history of country music. They also won the Country Music Association Vocal Duo of the Year award every year since they debuted in 1991 except in 2000 when the honor went to Montgomery Gentry, and in 2007 and 2009 when it was awarded to Sugarland. They sold over 30 million records and were one of the most consistently successful touring acts on the concert circuit.
On August 10, 2009, Brooks & Dunn announced to their fans, via their website that they intended to disband after 20 years of touring. Brooks resumed his solo career in 2012, releasing a new twelve-track album on September 11, 2012.
The Louisiana Music Hall of Fame is designated as “Official” by the Louisiana legislature and has, in the last year, inducted country superstar Tim McGraw and smash new artist Hunter Hayes. For more information on the LMHOF, please visit http://www.lmhof.org.
