Hard Workin’ Men: See Brooks & Dunn Through the Years [Pictures]
Brooks & Dunn were unstoppable in the 1990s and 2000s. Together, Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn dominated the charts and country music's awards shows with their pitch-perfect harmonies and catchy country tracks.
Both Brooks and Dunn were working as solo artists and songwriters when music executive Tim DuBois suggested they link up. As Brooks & Dunn, they signed to Arista Nashville in 1991, and released their debut album. It was a smash — Brand New Man is one of the decade's best discs — and their careers took off from there.
Brooks & Dunn were still riding high in 2009 when they announced that they were calling it quits. Both members insisted there was no animosity between the two of them; it was just time to end it. As a duo, they hung up their hats after one final tour, which ended in 2010, and worked as solo artists for a few years.
They reunited in 2015 for a Las Vegas residency with their good friend Reba McEntire — and 2019 will bring with it even more exciting news for Brooks & Dunn fans. The two have announced a new album called Reboot, featuring some big names and some even bigger hit songs, coming this spring.
