Kix Brooks and Kenny Rogers Advertise Their Funny Bones—Along With Chicken and Insurance

Zaxby's and Geico gain new country pitchmen.

Country music stars are getting a little more TV time thanks to some new commercials now airing coast to coast.

Kix Brooks is starring in the latest series of Zaxby’s commercials, serving the chicken goods straight out of the “secret compartment” in his cowboy hat in one, while being the new cowboy in town in search of a chicken sandwich in another.

 Then Kenny Rogers plays himself in new GEICO insurance commercials. We all know the company’s slogan, “15 minutes could save you 15 percent or more on your car insurance.” Another valid point is made in the new commercial when it’s pointed out that playing cards with Kenny Rogers gets old real fast! Kenny is in his glory at a cards table, singing the hook to his famous song “The Gambler” before catching himself being a little over the top.

Meanwhile, Andy Griggs’ voice can still be heard on the various Krystal ads, both on television and radio.
