1,700 square feet home. There was this little quarry hill behind the house, and after we had played horseshoes for awhile, Garth and I crawled up there and were talking and looking down at my spread. I remember him going, 'This is awesome. I don't guess I"ll ever have a place like this.'
"I was like, 'Come on Garth, you're writing good songs; you sing good. Hang in there pal.'"
Kix pauses for a moment, then grins. "Damn, I'm glad I was nice to him!!! [laughs] Three years later, here comes GarthZilla through the Country Music Jungle."
Garth was just announced as the newest inductee into the Country Music Hall of Fame, along with Grand Ole Opry star Connie Smith and famed session musician Hargus 'Pig' Robbins. Kix is enjoying his new solo career with his first single, 'New to This Town.'
