A Brooks and Dunn break-up has been announced by the country duo. The Brooks and Dunn break-up is the talk of the country music world after a Brooks and Dunn break-up announcement was made on their website. The Brooks and Dunn split is a bit of a shock, but the duo has had a very successful run in country music, setting them up as one of the top selling country duos of all time. Rather than issuing a press statement, Brooks and Dunn took to brooks-dunn.com where they announced how the break-up will go down, and when they will be performing their last shows as a country duo.
The Brooks and Dunn break-up comes after 20 years of the group topping the country music charts and racking up plenty of awards along the way. The Brooks and Dunn break-up announcement simply stated that the group had enjoying riding the trail together. The Brooks and Dunn statement went on to say that “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.” This seemed to be an attempt to head off rumors that had been floating around, and though none of the rumors had any substance, the group made the noble decision to let their fans know rather than keep them waiting in the wings regarding what the duo would choose to do next.
The Brooks and Dunn break-up isn’t going to happen right away though, as the country duo still has some plans before they go out in a blaze of glory. The latest Brooks and Dunn news has the group releasing a brand new album on September 8th which will be called #1’s and then some, to be followed up with a farewell tour in 2010 to give all of their fans one last chance to see one of the biggest country duos in the history of music. That tour hasn’t announced its final dates as of yet, but their web-site states that it should take place at some point in 2010. The Brooks and Dunn farewell tour will be called “The Last Rodeo Tour” so keep your eyes open for future announcements of specific dates and venues where Brooks and Dunn will make their final run.
This is going to be hard news for long time Brooks and Dunn fans to absorb, but it brings to an end a long career that leaves these country music stars with no regrets to feel guilty about. Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn have sold more than 30 million records, have had 23 #1 hits, and have won over 80 major music industry awards during their careers. Now they have the ability to ride off into the sunset, and they are going to do it on top, surely with the chance at another #1 album when they drop their last album on September 8th, 2009.
