In a manner of speaking, it’s been 20 years in the making, but it was well worth the wait, as Kix Brooks delivers his first post-Brooks & Dunn solo album, titled New to This Town, set for release this coming Tuesday, September 11th! Kix co-wrote nine of the album’s dozen songs and also stepped behind the scenes as album producer, teaming with Rascal Flatts‘ Jay DeMarcus to co-produce the title track, “New to This Town.” Making the album has been a true labor of love for Kix, who says that after all the success he’s been blessed with in his career, the thing that’s most important to him isn’t really about him, it’s more about his hope that he’s made an album that fans will genuinely enjoy.  Kix tells Sony Music Nashville: “I mean, people would expect me to say this, and it may feel corny or trite or whatever, but I have been blessed with the most amazing life by the fans of country music. I mean, I’ve said it numerous times, they’ve paid my rent all these years, and I owe ‘em. And you know, so for me, it’s real important that this music that I made makes ‘em happy. And that’s…people go, you know, ‘What are you worried about?’ and ‘You’ve had this great career,’ and all that and everything. That’s what I’m worried about. I really hope that I’ve made some music that’s fun enough and special enough that it’ll move them, and when they listen to it, they’ll go, you know, ‘This is really good.’ That’s what’s important to me now.”
