The country duo of Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn have posted a message on their Web site Monday saying they agreed to “call it a day” after 20 years making music. Read more on Brooks and Dunn’s split below.
Brooks and Dunn posted this message on their website:
“This ride has been everything and more than we could ever have dreamed … We owe it all to you, the fans,” they said in the message. “If you hear rumors, don’t believe them, it’s just time.”
But Brooks & Dunn will be releasing a greatest-hits album in September and will tour their last time in 2010.
The country duo has many hits including “Boot Scootin’ Boogie,” “My Maria,” “Red Dirt Road” and “Cowgirls Don’t Cry” with Reba McEntire.
Brooks and Dunn have recorded 10 studio albums together. “They’ve been to the mountaintop and they’ve accomplished everything that two human beings joined together musically can do in a career,” said Brian Philips, president of Country Music Television. “They’ve had every kind of hit. Literally, they’ve explored every musical texture and tempo and style and flavor.”
CMT is reportedly taping Brooks & Dunn performing and talking about their music Wednesday for an episode of the show “Invitation Only” that will air in October.
“The guys that I know, I can’t imagine either of those two individuals walking away from music. That’s unthinkable,” Philip said.
Brooks & Dunn have won the Country Music Association’s vocal duo of the year award every year between 1992 and 2006, except for 2000.
