Well, it is official. The following information is posted on Brooks & Dunn's official website:
"To Our Fans: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).Brooks & Dunn"
Wow, well what can I say. Pretty hard news to take in a lot of ways. What a talented and fun duo. They are the masters of a country music duo; they know country music and know how to perform it. Both Ronnie and Kix are so instrumental in the country music community and are pure icons. Yes, I could go on for awhile, but I think I'd rather turn the I-pod on and take a listen to their music. One more album to come, but will be mainly hits from its title.
