Brooks & Dunn
Ronnie Dunn & Kix Brooks


Most recently in the news for their sudden split - after 20 years of making top country hits - Brooks & Dunn are an award-winning superstar duo which burst onto the country music scene in 1991.

Debuting with a total of four singles that reached the No. 1 spot on the charts, their first album, "Brand New Man", went 6x platinum after its debut.

Since then, Brooks & Dunn have enjoyed continued success with more than 40 singles on the country music charts, 20 of which have been No. 1 hits with songs like Boot Scootin Boogie, You’re Gonna Miss Me When I’m Gone, My Maria, Only In America, and Red Dirt Road.


Kix Brooks

Born Leon Eric Brooks III on May 12, 1955 in Shreveport, Louisiana, Kix Brooks performed at local clubs all through high school and college before eventually finding his niche in Nashville as a country music songwriter. In 1990, he was introduced to his future music partner by Arista Records executive Tim Dubois. Today, Brooks is also the host of American Country Countdown a syndicated radio program that counts down the current list of top 40 country songs.

Brooks married wife Barbara in 1982, and they have two children, Molly and Eric.


Ronnie Dunn

Born Ronald Gene Dunn on June 1, 1953 in Coleman, Texas, Ronnie Dunn led a nomadic childhood and moved with his mother and truck driver father to four different states. As an adult, Dunn finally settled in Nashville where he met Kix Brooks in 1990 to eventually form an award winning duo that have been at the top of the country music charts ever since. Among Ronnie's stand-alone awards include BMI Country Songwriter of the year and Billboard Magazine country songwriter of the year. In 2005, he was inducted into the Arkansas Music Hall of Fame.

He has been married to his wife, Janine for 17 years and has three children, Whitney, Jesse and Haley.

Together, Brooks & Dunn held the record for number of major industry awards at both the ACM and the CMA Awards when they suddenly announced their split in August 2009.

Two years later, Dunn released a self-titled album which included the Top 10 country hit "Bleed Red", while Brooks released "New to This Town" in September 2012.

Three years later, the duo reunited in 2015 for a series of concerts with Reba McEntire in Las Vegas.
