Brooks & Dunn fans have long-awaited music from the iconic duo since they went on hiatus back in 2010. But now, nearly nine years later, Ronnie Dunn and Kix Brooks are back together, giving a face lift to the songs that started it all. Enter Reboot, a CD filled with all of the classic B&D hits, but with a twist. Rather than just re-release the songs again, Brooks & Dunn invited the brightest rising stars in country music to help put a spin on their greatest hits.
“When he started singing that song, Ronnie and I realized that this album could be really special,” Brooks told Sounds Like Nashville of his experience working with Kane Brown in this month’s cover story. “Here’s some guys doing stuff that really isn’t in their comfort zone, but they are making their comfort zone. We also realized how versatile they were at that point. We knew they were all good singers in doing their thing, but doing our thing was still a question mark. So as the album progressed we realized these artists were not only great artists, but they were versatile artists. They really made it fun for us and gave us something that we’re really proud of.”
In all, 12 songs appear on the record, featuring updates from Luke Combs on “Brand New Man,” Brothers Osborne on “Hard Workin’ Man,” Midland on “Boot Scootin’ Boogie,” LANCO on “Mama Don’t Get Dressed Up for Nothing,” Tyler Booth on “Lost and Found,” Brett Young on “Ain’t Nothing ‘Bout You,” Thomas Rhett on “My Maria” and much more.
