After twenty years as part of one of the most successful duo’s in music history I couldn’t help but wonder how Kix Brooks feels about being the new kid again with his release of the solo single New to This Town.  Kix told Sony Music he feels like he’s starting over:  “Well, it’s kind of interesting. I mean, obviously I’ve been here a long time, so you know, I’m not new, but it is…it’s more like startin’ over in this town, you know? And there’s a lot of aspects of it that are, and I think folks are in a lot of ways real curious about what I’m up to and how this could be different than Brooks & Dunn, obviously. And it is different. And it’s kind of fun. Ronnie and I both, I think, ran under certain confines to try and make what we were callin’ Brooks & Dunn music. Whatever that was, it did have certain guidelines to it, a certain image to it, and, you know, we tried to stay true to that. So it’s kind of fun — I’m sure it is for him, too, but it definitely is for me to have that freedom of sort of turnin’ back the hands of time a little bit and goin’, ‘Okay, who was that guy again?’  Yeah, it’s me! That’s right!’”
