Kix Brooks have may performed ‘New to This Town’ during tonight’s ‘CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock,’ but it’s clear that the former Brooks & Dunn member is far from a novice when it comes to entertaining a Music City crowd.

Performing ‘at one of Nashville’s hottest spots,’ Brooks offered an energetic performance of his first single as a full-fledged solo artist. “I’m getting a lot of feedback that’s, ‘Hey, I didn’t realize you could do that,’” the singer tells Taste of Country of his live shows post-Brooks & Dunn fame.

Brooks’ solo record, also called ‘New to This Town,’ is available in stores and at digital retailers as of Sept. 11. The album also features his current single, ‘Bring It on Home.’
