Brooks & Dunn Going Out On Top

Posted: Aug 11, 2009

All good things, they say,  must eventually come to an end, even if it’s a mega-star country music act like Brooks & Dunn. Louisiana man Kix Brooks and Texan Ronnie Dunn have announced that they are parting ways as a duo following a farewell tour next year dubbed “The Last Rodeo Tour.” Prior to that the guys will be releasing a greatest hits package just in time for the Holidays.

Brooks & Dunn got together a little over 20 years ago, and charted with “Boot Scootin’ Boogie” in 1991. They went on to become the biggest selling duo in country music history and repeatedly beat out the competition for Best Duo at the CMA Awards.

Kix and Ronnie will continue solo careers, and have told the press that the breakup is a mutual agreement, that it was “just time,” and asked fans to please “don’t believe any rumors you may hear,”

I always liked Brooks & Dunn’s blend of country with definite elements of Southern Rock tossed in.

I’ve posted a couple of videos from the CMT Crossroads that paired B&D with ZZ Top. They went on to enjoy a massive co-headlining tour. There’s also a link to a video of my favorite B&D song, “Hillbilly Deluxe.” Unfortunately embedding was disabled for the video, but you can click and see it on YouTube. Good stuff.

Brooks and Dunn may be coming to an end, but there’s no doubt in my mind that these guys will still be churning out some great music for years to come.

Keep it Real. Keep it Southern.

A very common use of a strobe light today is in emergency vehicles, especially when the light needs to be fitted in a concealed manner. A police light can be fitted as a hideaway light into the headlight of a vehicle and will be completely invisible till it is activated. flashing lights are also extensively used in off-road car shows where multicolored strobes are used on cars to produce moving lights that can go up and down, to keep beat with the rhythm of the background music.Everyone need a wholesale pen and all of us hold a wholesale umbrella in case of the bad weather, so they are good tools to promote your new brand. A stress ball is a good tool to release stress.

As many people know, supra shoes, have a high reputation in the world now. supra footwear, and supra skytop become more and more popular. skytop is well known by his best quality of the supra muska skytop,. However, not only the supra shoes sale, but also the supra skytop sale, and supra vaider, are the best athletic shoes. In our daily life, we always look for pair shoes which make us relax when we are running on the way. They are the best partners for people who like sports very much.

I think it is a wise move to go out on top especially in todays country scene which is the same as the pop scene in the sense that the new audience looks for the "flavor of the week". Many groups have gone out on top and find that when they regroup they are bigger than when they left. Sometimes you need to take away a good thing to make people miss it.
