Dan+Shay’s video for “Nothin’ Like You” has given new homes to over 40 dogs. Animal rescue is a cause close to the guys’ hearts. They decided to do something crazy on this video and brought 43 dogs to the video shoot. The guys and the dogs ran around and played in the mud all day. As a result, all 43 dogs got adopted from that video and the duo raised a lot of awareness.

Kix Brooks will release his first cookbook, Cookin’ It with Kix:  The Art of Celebrating and the Fun of Outdoor Cooking later this summer. In addition to more than 100 recipes for dishes ranging from beignets to duck gumbo, the collection will include personal stories, as well. Cookin’ It with Kix will be available August 30.
