Superstar duo Brooks & Dunn released their first album in 1991, a blockbuster that delivered four #1 singles – the first of 23 chart-toppers in a career that’s seen Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn become the best-selling duo in country music history. Hits like “Boot Scootin’ Boogie,” “My Maria,” “Only in America,” and “Believe” have propelled Brooks & Dunn to more than 30 million albums sold, as the duo has amassed more than 80 industry awards, including 2 GRAMMY awards, 20 Country Music Association trophies, and 27 Academy of Country Music honors, making them the most-awarded act in ACM history. Named Entertainer of the Year four times collectively by the ACM and CMA, Brooks & Dunn consistently remained among country’s most popular touring acts, a testament both to their showmanship and to their status as one of the true bedrock artists of contemporary country music.
Brooks & Dunn announced their retirement in August 2009 and performed their final concert on September 2, 2010 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. Both Brooks and Dunn have continued to record for Arista Nashville as solo artists. Dunn released a self-titled album in 2011 which included the Top 10 country hit “Bleed Red,” while Brooks entered the Top 40 in mid-2012 with “New to This Town.”
