Brooks and Dunn have posted an announcement on their site stating “It’s time to call it a day”.
That’s right, Brooks & Dunn have officially announced the end of a 20 year chart dominating reign on country music. B&D posted on their own website:
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. This ride has been everything and more than we could ever have dreamed…. We owe it all to you, the fans. If you hear rumors, don’t believe them, it’s just time.
We will release our #1’s and then some” on September 8th and bid you farewell one last time in 2010, with The Last Rodeo Tour…(dates to be announced).
I have to say that I am saddened, much like a child who finds out their parents are divorcing. Brooks & Dunn’s songs were the soundtrack of my life for many, MANY years, and they are a duo which has set the bar that all other male duos will have to reach to call themselves successful. I wish them the very best in their future bush wish even more that they would continue to make the music we love so much!
Fans can see the duo perform together one last time as they embark on the Brooks and Dunn Last Rodeo Tour, which currently has dates booked through the summer of 2010.Country Music Photo Gallery
