The Adventures of Slim and Howdy

by Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn
Bill Fitzhugh, collaborator

      The alter egos of country music stars Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn are brought to life with the help of author Bill Fitzhugh. The result is an entertaining look at how modern cowboys Slim and Howdy navigate their way through life while in search of stardom and adventure. They seem to have a string of bad luck with everyone, from a card shark to a couple of thieves, to falling for the likes of some pretty women who are just begging for trouble. A side stop into a hometown bar brings a kidnapping, unexpected danger, and a long ride into the desert and a new forged friendship that was obviously meant to be.

Itís fun to think of Slim and Howdy as the other personalities of "Brooks and Dunn." A witty cowboy tale that is comical as well from start to finish. Lots of song references that any fan of "Brooks and Dunn" would immediately recognize, such as the first page when they mention a "Red Dirt Road." You can glimpse the world where Slim and Howdy create the life that then became "Brooks and Dunn" songs.
