Today is ‘National Leon Day’
Would you be surprised to find out one member of Brooks and Dunn is actually named Leon?
Kix Brooks' real name is Leon. So, in honor of today being 'National Leon Day,' sit back, relax and enjoy one of the many hits that Brooks and Dunn gave to us throughout the years. Don't forget you can catch Kix with American Country Countdown every Sunday between 4p-8p on WOKQ.
Here's Leon singing lead vocals on 'You're Gonna Miss Me When I'm Gone.'
PS. National Leon Day actually has nothing to do with the name Leon. According to the National Holiday Calendar, National Leon Day 'marks June 25th as 6 months away from Christmas day. Leon is Noel spelled backwards and is a day some crafters begin planning their homemade gifts and decorations. It can also be a day for those who miss the winter holidays to have a mini winter celebration in June.'
