KIX BROOKS RIDES FOR CHARITY
Kix Brooks of Brooks & Dunn will participate in this year's 8th Annual Celebrity Cutting Star Spangled Round-Up at the National Cutting Horse Association's National Futurity in Fort Worth, Texas.
In a cutting horse competition, riders try to steer a cow away from the herd and keep it from going back.
"My wife got me into this kind of riding," says Kix. "And once I started doing it, I couldn't get enough."
All proceeds from the event go to charity -- a foundation for cancer patients and their families.
Also on hand will be Lynn Anderson, Clay Walker, actor Sam Shepard and Olympic gold equestrian David O'Connor.
