[lastfm]Kix Brooks[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Ronnie Dunn[/lastfm] may have put up their cowboy boots when they finished their 20 yr partnership in Septemner, but the duo apparently are forging on…solo.
Ronnie Dunn is said to be working on his own album, while Kix Brooks has hit the road.
CMT reports that Kix was at Joe’s Bar in Chicago last week entertaining but candlelight. His appaearance is part of the CMA Songwriters Series that included Kix, Bob DiPiero, Dave Lee Murphy and The Band Perry.
Kix took a trip down memory lane before he sang his first Brooks & Dunn hit, sharing with the crowd about performing in the Old Absinthe House in New Orleans every night before he got to Nashville. Kix took Ronnie to Bourbon Street after some early success in Nashville and discovered a country karaoke bar. Apparently after getting drunk on Jell-O shots, they fought their way through the crowd, took the stage and sang one of their own tunes. “We nailed it,’ declared Kix.
