Editors’ Notes

The title to Kix Brooks’ long overdue second solo album (his preceding one came out in 1989) is a bit misleading until you hear lyrics to the opening title-track wherein he wishes that he was New To This Town. Those fans lamenting the 2010 retirement of country powerhouse duo Brooks & Dunn will be glad to know that New To This Town doesn’t play like the man is trying to reinvent what he and Ronnie Dunn had created for two decades. It immediately resonates with a warm familiarity before boasting a searing solo by guest guitarist Joe Walsh. And the crystalline quality of those air-tight vocal harmonies can be partially credited to the co-production of Jay DeMarcus, one third of the harmonious Rascal Flatts. The following “Moonshine Road” finds Brooks revisiting his talent for rocking bluesy, down-home, boot-stompers while “Bring It On Home” reveals that he shines best when crooning those post honky-tonk make-out ballads. Conversely, “Next To That Woman” finds Brooks expanding on his propensity for turning up the tube amps and rocking out while retaining his twangy roots.

Customer Reviews

Good album

This is a good album. I do miss Brooks and Dunn..but put this together with Ronnie Dunn's album in a playlist..and it's almost like B&D!

Overall though, this is a good album.

What happened?!

Disappointed listening to this. Lyrics were mediocre. The music itself doesn't stand out. And Kix's voice blends in with any generic country singer out there. Be honest, picking this out without Kix's name attached and you wouldn't be impressed. The only songs that stand out are Moonshine Road and She Knew I Was A Cowboy. I have all the respect in the world for this man and this lone flop won't change my opinion of him, but he can do better. Ronnie Dunn had a great (Seriously, if you loved Brooks & Dunn check out Ronnie's CD) debut album. I tried to like this. I Really did. There's just isn't much substance there. I remain hopeful and optimistic that his second album will be better. Love you, Kix! No hard feelings.

New Beginnings!

I have to say, I have only listened to a few selections. I haven't bought the whole CD. But what I have heard has impressed me! YES! I miss Ronnie Dunn! I feel this would have made a classic Brooks & Dunn CD, but those days are gone! (For Now!)
I feel that the songwriting is first rate! It shows that Kix took his time with this CD!!!

Okay... Enough said... Clicking Purchase! I'm excited to hear the whole thing in it's entirety!!!
