Kix Brooks, half of the super-duo Brooks & Dunn, is setting his trademark cowboy boots aside to help U.S. Servicemen and women returning from combat.
The boots are part of a national initiative called the Boot Campaign where Brooks is the featured celebrity this week at www.bootcampaign.com.
Proceeds from every pair of boots sold through the Boot Campaign go to charities that help military members and their families cope with physical injuries and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Brooks joins an impressive roster of celebrities from all entertainment mediums who have helped the Boot Campaign, including former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman, Texas Governor Rick Perry and fellow country stars Dolly Parton, Charlie Daniels and Gretchen Wilson to name a few.
For two decades, Brooks was half of Brooks & Dunn, the highest selling duo in country music history. The duo sold more than 30 million records, scored 23 number one hits and won an impressive 80 major music industry awards.
Kix Brooks serves on the boards of the Country Music Association and Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital.
