Brooks & Dunn Break Up

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:

To Our Fans:Brooks & Dunn News

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

  1. Well I just couldn’t be more bummed. They’ve raised my spirits and soothed my soul hundreds of times. I’ve been in their audience a dozen times and always walked away feeling like I saw the best country music has to offer. All the best to both…

  2. It was nice lissing to your music. I hope you leave in good stand’s like it sound’s, You are.You two have won a lot of awddes in the past year’s.Your music was the best in my book.The next man that has good music like your’s is Kenny Chesney.

  6. Thats very sad, my mo and I plus all the other people I know that likes country music says no its not time for them to brake up, they have great music they need to keep making more. So please don’t brake up

  7. They have given us so much great music. They well deserve this opportunity to retire from this endeavor and walk new roads. Who knows? I suspect the music is in their blood, and we’ll hear from one, or both, of them again. Anyway, thanks a lot, fellas. Enjoy the rest of your lives. You certainly have enriched ours.

  8. Do you really have to break up? my fiancee and i got to together when you released your first hit. you have been our favorite ever since. please, say it ain’t so! but if it is, thanks for all your songs!

  12. Kicks and Ronnie, what a wonderful ride it has been. I’ve laughed, cried and made it through some tough times listening to your great music . I never listened to a single one of your songs that I wasn’t moved in some way or another. I still sing along when they come on the radio, and have always said that is the greatest compliment you can pay an artist is to sing their songs back to them. My hats off to you both and may God shine and smile down upon both you you and your famalies……………….
