I heard this yesterday! I was very shocked! This guys have been together for 20 years! Wow! Most duos today are lucky to stay together for one album and one tour! Yikes! I have been a big fan of Brooks and Dunn since"Brand New Man" came out! I think it was 1991! Anyway I know this isn't going to happen until next year but when it doesn happen I'll be sad! Brooks and Dunn are the best duo ever to be in country music!

That is not what I wanted to hear on the radio first thing when I wake up!! I've been a big fan since I could remember!! I can't believe that they decided to end it... although they did have a good long run... and their music was great!

Thanks for the response! When I first heard this I was in shock! Anyway the offical breakup ends after they tour next year! I hope both are successful as solo acts!

Well, like many collaboration's there comes a point when everyone involved feels like its time for something new. This has happened with quite a few country artists who have gone on to do great things recently. The Wreckers Jessica Harp has a released a single that's awesome, and both Big Kinney and John Rich have had good success after the parted ways. If I had to guess both Kicks Brooks and Ronnie Dunn have other things they want to do. Kick's actually owns a vineyard just south of Nashville (http://www.arringtonvineyards.com/).

It also sounds like both Kix(not Kicks)Brooks and Ronnie Dunn will be doing their own solo careers in the future.

HI blue65packer: I read about this today, makes me sad too; I just posted a topic about them too, I did a search to see if anyone else had started one and it said nothing had been posted under them ...AARgghh! Sorry!! Here is mine if you'd like to read it; http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/2103074.aspx They've sure had some amazing songs, and tours haven't they? I know I'll continue to be a fan no matter what they do together or separate you know? and I agree they are the BEST COUNTRY MUSIC DUO EVER!!!!!

Oh no! That is not something I wanted to hear today. I love Brooks & Dunn! They are great in concert! Saw them back in 2006 and loved every second of it! Darn it!

Yea I heard the news too. I haven't been a fan of country music for to long but I can't get enough of "Cowgirls Don't Cry". Someone told me that, that particular song reminded them of me and I fell in love with that song. After 20 years I'm sure they're tired and ready to take some what of a vacation. I doubt they're done for good and we will see them again in the future doing something musicly inclined. It's hard to keep good musicians quiet.
