Brooks & Dunn Through the Years: From ‘Brand New Man’ to a 2019 ‘Reboot’ [PICTURES]
Brooks & Dunn have come a long way since they first rose to country music stardom in 1991 with the release of their hit debut album, Brand New Man. Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn began their careers as solo artists, but it wasn't until industry executive Tim DuBois suggested the two join forces that they became the beloved country duo that fans know today.
Since then, the pair have released 11 studio albums, notching a total of 23 No. 1 singles and capturing the hearts of country listeners across the world. In 2009, Brooks & Dunn announced their plans to retire from the music business, and after a final tour the following year, they officially called it quits, stressing that the end of their work together wasn't due to any sort of falling out, but simply that they just wanted to concentrate on other things.
Luckily for fans, the following years weren't totally devoid of Brooks & Dunn: The pair made an appearance on the 2016 all-star collaboration single "Forever Country," and also teamed up with Reba McEntire in 2015 for a joint Las Vegas residency.
Still, 2019 has already been a bigger year than most since their split. The pair announced on Thursday (Feb. 7) that they are planning a new, all-star duets project, Reboot. That album will showcase some of the iconic duo's greatest hits, featuring a star-studded lineup that includes Kane Brown, Kacey Musgraves, Thomas Rhett and many more. The project is slotted to come out in the spring of 2019.
