American Country Countdown features the Top 30 Country songs each week surrounded with fascinating stories from Kix Brooks! Kix features a “Hero Salute”, honoring a hometown hero each week.

Kix Brooks was born and raised in Shreveport, LA where he hit the ground running and has never slowed down. He got into music at a young age which eventually lead him to Nashville where he started his career writing hit songs for other artists such as the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Highway 101, and John Conlee. In 1990, Kix teamed with Ronnie Dunn to form Brooks & Dunn, who are the highest-selling duo in the history of country music. They have sold more than 30 million records, won more than 75 major industry awards, and have 20 #1 hit songs.

In 2006, Kix took over the hosting reins of the long-running syndicated radio program American Country Countdown, where every week he shares country music's Top 30 songs. The broadcast industry has taken note and honored Kix with the CMA National Broadcast Personality of the Year Award in 2009, 2011, and 2013, making him the first person to ever win a CMA Award as an artist and a broadcaster.
