Hoppy Birthday Kix. You look great for 56.
Kix Brooks was born Leon Eric "Kix" Brooks III in Shreveport Louisiana on this day in 1955. He's best known for being half of Brooks & Dunn for more than twenty years before they announced their split.
Kix graduated from a military academy before going on to get his theater arts major. He spent one summer in Alaska with his father working on a pipeline before returning to school. He's also written advertising before deciding to move to Nashville in 1979.
