Brooks & Dunn Reunite, and Hitting the Road Soon for 2024 Tour

They were the ultimate duo of the 90s country music scene, selling out stadiums, churning out chart-topping hits, and leaving an undeniable mark on the genre.

Then, in 2009, after a record-breaking career, Ronnie Dunn and Kix Brooks, better known as Brooks & Dunn, announced their hiatus. But fear not, fellow country music fans, because the boys are back in town (quite literally)!

This iconic duo’s highly anticipated reunion is not just a trip down memory lane. They’re not only touring again, but they’re also blessing our ears with fresh collaborations, proving that their reign as country music royalty is far from over.

A Match Made in Country Music Heaven

The story of Brooks & Dunn begins long before their meteoric rise to fame. Ronnie Dunn, a seasoned singer-songwriter from Arkansas, met Kix Brooks, a rodeo clown with a golden voice, at a local club in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 1989.

Recognizing a shared passion for country music, they formed a band called Remington Steel. However, after limited success, they decided to reinvent themselves as a duo, a decision that would change the landscape of country music forever.


Taking the Charts by Storm: A Look Back at Brooks & Dunn’s Legacy

Brooks & Dunn’s self-titled debut album arrived in 1991, and it was an instant smash. Tracks like “Brand New Man” and “Neon Moon” showcased their signature sound – a blend of traditional country twang with a modern rock edge.

This winning formula propelled them to superstardom, racking up an impressive 20 No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.

Here’s a glimpse at some of their iconic hits that continue to resonate with fans across generations (data table for easy reference):

  • 18 American Music Awards

A Well-Deserved Hiatus and Individual Pursuits

After two decades of relentless touring and recording, Brooks & Dunn announced their hiatus in 2009. This decision came as a surprise to many fans, but both Ronnie Dunn and Kix Brooks expressed a desire to explore solo ventures.

Dunn released several solo albums, experimenting with a more bluesy sound. Brooks, on the other hand, focused on family and philanthropic endeavors. While both were successful in their own right, there was a clear absence of the magic they created together.

The Reunion Everybody’s Been Waiting For

The whispers started in 2019, and then, to the delight of country music fans everywhere, Brooks & Dunn officially announced their reunion in 2020. The news sent shockwaves through the industry, and their comeback tour, dubbed “The Reboot Tour,” quickly sold out stadiums across the nation.

But the reunion wasn’t just about reliving past glories. They surprised fans with brand new music, including the single “Boot Scootin’ Back,” a playful nod to their iconic hit and a clear message to their fans – they were back for good.

However, Brooks & Dunn are known to collaborate occasionally. Here are some real examples:

  • They teamed up with Brothers Osborne on the song “Boot Scootin’ Boogie (20th Anniversary Version)” in 2019.
  • Ronnie Dunn (one half of Brooks & Dunn) collaborated with Kelsea Ballerini on her song “DIFFERENT” in 2020, but this wasn’t a Brooks & Dunn collaboration.
