no images were foundFor country music fans, this is one duo that doesn’t need an introduction. With millions of touring miles under their belt, over 20 number-one hits, countless awards and numerous accolades the duo known as Brooks & Dunn have carved a whole new style of country music while still upholding the true character of the genre.
While the spirit of their 20-plus years of music making will live on, unfortunately, it will not be the way country music fans know it today. After a public announcement of their departure from the duo, Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn have decided to pursue projects outside of the Brooks & Dunn label.
“After 20 years of making music and riding this trail together, we have agreed as a duo that it’s time call it a day,” the duo collectively announced in a press statement. “This ride has been everything and more than we could ever have dreamed…”
Fortunately, for Chicago area fans, Brooks & Dunn will play the First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre one last time on Sunday. Their summer tour, labeled “The Last Rodeo” is a way for the duo to party with their fans one last time.
A humble Brooks and Dunn attributes their success over the years to their fans.
“We owe it all to you, the fans,” the duo posted on their website.
Kix and Ronnie, on behalf of my fellow country music fans in Chicago, we owe it to you.
