Join me Sunday morning, July 28th, for the music of Brooks and Dunn on the Country Classic Spotlight at 11 a.m.  The Country Classic Show kicks off at 9 a.m.

Brooks and Dunn is a duo comprised of Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn.  Kix was born on May 12, 1955 in Shreveport, Louisiana and Ronnie Dunn on June 1, 1953 in Coleman, Texas.

Kix started out as a songwriter while Ronnie was competing (and winning) a national country talent competition.  The two would eventually join forces to become the successful, high energy duo.

Their first album, Brand New Man, came out in August of 1991.  It sold over 5 million copies and produced several #1 hits including Brand New Man, My Next Broken Heart, Neon Moon and  Boot Scootin’ Boogie.  

Ronnie Dunn wrote Boot Scootin’ Boogie and it became a smash hit for the duo.  It set off a country line dancing craze.  Due to the success  of their debut album, the Country Music Association named them Vocal Duo of the Year.  They took this award home for five consecutive years.  Over the course of their career they compiled 17 Country Music Association Awards, 26 Academy of Country Music Awards and two Grammy Awards

Ronnie handled the lead vocals while Kix would primarily handle harmonies.  During live shows Kix would sometimes jump off stage to dance with members of the audience.

They announced their retirement in August of 2009 and performed their final show in early September 2010 in Nashville, Tennessee.
