Brooks & Dunn, basically the greatest duo in contemporary country music, announced they were splitting/retiring/whatevs after playing together for 20 years.
Brooks & Dunn is, incidentally, responsible for my favorite concert EVER — when I was front row at their concert with Alan Jackson in 2007. The story also involves me receiving two guitar picks, being invited backstage for groupie sex by Brooks & Dunn’s back-up guitarist, and hip-checking a woman while I chased after the guy who tried to steal my purse. But that’s for another post.
Enjoy my favorite Brooks & Dunn songs:
- Red Dirt Road (a classic)
- Believe (a beautiful song)
- Brand New Man (an anthem for every man who needs to change and every woman who thinks she can change him)
- Only In America (a campaign classic)
