Brooks and Dunn



The duo of Brooks & Dunn is one of the most successful in the history of country music. Brooks & Dunn have been regulars on the Billboard Charts, sold albums by the millions, and earned the Vocal duo honors at the prestigious country music awards and shows. The acknowledged kings of the '90s' line-dancing craze, Brooks & Dunn are not only the biggest-selling duo in country music history, and they’ve also sold more records than any other duo period. Since their 1991 debut album Brand and New Man, which spawned the high-energy hit “Boot Scootin, Boogie” Brooks and Dunn, held the title of vocal duo from 1991 to 1997 by The Academy of Country Music and were named vocal duo of the year from 1992 to 1999 by The Country Music Association. Their debut album sold more than 6 million copies. They kept up their winning streak with more No. 1 hits: "She Used to Be Mine," "That Ain't No Way to Go," "She's Not the Cheatin' Kind," "Little Miss Honky Tonk" and "You're Gonna Miss Me When I'm Gone." From playing in bands and watching the patterns of what people would dance to, the duo delivered exactly what the listeners desired. In 1998, Brooks and Dunn made history with Reba McEntire, the release of their album, If You See Her, coincided with the release of her album, If You See Him, and both albums contained the duet single, “If You See Him/If You See Her.” It was also a chart topper for both artists. Having stumbled in 1999 with the lackluster Tight Rope, Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn picked themselves up and dusted off their Wranglers with 2001's Steers and Stripes, an album that some listeners considered their best. The title track was spectacular and emotional since it was the slice of backwoods Southern surroundings that melded with the push of the gospel along with the pull of desire--which, for a '60s teenager, meant girls, cars, and the beer-laced taste of freedom.

Brooks is an excitable man running up and down the stage during the duo’s quick-pqced, high-production live shows. On the other hand Dunn is a tall dark gentleman with a brooding personality with a penchant for black clothing. Leon Eric “Kix” Brooks and Ronnie Gene Dunn met in 1990 when they were introduced by Tim DuBois, an Arista executive. Dunn usually serves as the lead vocalist while Brooks plays guitar and works the stage. they returned in a big way with "Ain't Nothing 'Bout You" in 2001. The song spent six weeks at No. 1, and the follow-up "Only in America" became a rallying cry after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. It helped restore their commercial fortunes. The following year, the duo issued their first holiday album, It Won't Be Christmas Without You. The album Red Dirt Road arrived in 2003, and the duo toured smaller markets to promote it in 2004. It reached top ten status as an album and has spawned the top 40 single, “That’s What She Gets For Loving Me”. Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn have become famous for their high-energy stage show, media wisecracks and rollicking personalities. They’re still the industry standard and honky tonk heavy weight champs of the road.
