Brooks & Dunn Top Country Albums Chart for First Time in a Decade
Brooks & Dunn are back on top. The iconic country duo have landed in the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart with their latest album Reboot, marking their seventh appearance in the coveted slot and first time in a decade.
The last time the beloved pair topped the chart was in 2009 with #1s… And Then Some, a two-disc collection of their biggest hits including "Boot Scootin' Boogie," "Red Dirt Road," "Neon Moon" and more.
Why Did Brooks & Dunn Ever Break Up, Anyway?
The duo re-recorded several of these hits with the likes of Kacey Musgraves, Luke Combs, Midland and Ashley McBryde on the collaborative Reboot, which sold 31,000 units in the week following its April 5 release. It also reached No. 8 on the all-genre Billboard 200.
“It is hard to believe after all these years, this music is at the top of Billboard's Top Country Albums chart,” Kix Brooks shares with Billboard. “I love these songs, and we owe a big thanks to all the amazing artists who brought them to life again. I don’t remember ever having more fun in the studio. Everybody says that, but I really think the proof is in the grooves!”
“Sometimes the stars just line up and good things happen. The success of this record is a tribute to the power of collaboration," Ronnie Dunn adds. "A big thanks to all of the artists, managers and label execs who allowed this record to sing.”
The chart-topping hitmakers recently received another significant honor when they were announced as the newest inductees into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Their official induction will take place at a Medallion ceremony later this year.
