Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, Kix Brooks discovered country music at a young age and spent his high schools years playing clubs and writing songs. After working in Nashville as a songwriter and attempting a solo career, in 1990 he partnered with Ronnie Dunn to form Brooks & Dunn. Starting with their hit single “Brand New Man,” Brooks & Dunn rose rapidly to become the most popular country duo of the 1990s. After twenty successful years, the pair parted ways in 2010 to pursue solo careers. Brooks’ first solo album, “New to This Town,” was released in September 2012.

Treena Parvello, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for the Tohono O’odham Gaming Enterprise, said, “We are so excited to bring one of country music’s biggest stars to Tucson for rodeo weekend! Don’t miss your chance to celebrate cowboy spirit with Kix Brooks, live in the Diamond Center!”
