NEW MUSIC: Brooks & Dunn REBOOT w/Collab Album – Out 4/5

The
best-selling duo of all time, Brooks & Dunn, announced Nashville’s
best kept secret today with the news that their forthcoming
collaboration project REBOOT will be available April 5
(Arista Nashville/Sony Music Nashville). Brooks & Dunn hit the
studio for the first time together since 2007 joined by an eclectic cast
of country’s hottest rising talent and producer Dann Huff to remake 12
timeless Brooks & Dunn hits. Kane Brown, Thomas Rhett, Brett Young,
LANCO, Ashley McBryde, Brothers Osborne, Luke Combs, Midland, Cody
Johnson, Jon Pardi, Tyler Booth and Kacey Musgraves call the shots on
the all-new arrangements of face-to-face collaborations with Brooks
& Dunn. What emerged from a year of top-secret sessions ranges from
edgy-rock intensity to heartbroken EDM, and from retro honky-tonk fun to
the exposed nerves of a reflective acoustic ballad. Offering the first
taste of what to expect from the forthcoming release, the revered duo’s
takes on “Brand New Man” with Luke Combs and “Believe” with Kane Brown
are available today HERE.

“This
whole experience has been humbling to say the least. What a cool rush
to hear somebody do one of your tunes in a unique way, and it still
holds up,” said Ronnie Dunn. “That’s the greatest compliment you can get
as an artist. People used to ask us all the time about the legacy we
wanted to leave, and it’s honestly just that – you hope the music stands
up over time. This is the first opportunity we’ve had to run it up a
new flagpole…and it really flies.”

“They’re making their own music,” Kix Brooks adds about the REBOOT guest
list. “But just like we did, they still remember and respect the music
they grew up with. It makes you feel good that these acts were inspired
by us in some small way.” 

It
was a chance meeting between Luke Combs and the duo’s long-time manager
that sparked the whole project, when he had explained what the duo
meant for his own music. “Brand New Man” offers a brawny, almost gleeful
rendition that is a revelation, baptized with a splash of high-energy
nostalgia. In similar fashion, Kane Brown took a faithful approach to
the spiritually-charged “Believe.” With its breathtaking emotional
beauty, Brown tapped into something so genuine it must be heard to be
truly comprehended.

“Brooks & Dunn’s music absolutely had a tremendous impact on me,”
said Combs. “To me, they invented that foot stomping, driving sound. And
it’s so cool that this has turned into such an awesome album, with
artists that actually grew up listening to Brooks & Dunn. Their
music was so influential to us that having the chance to come in and
bounce ideas off the guys and sing with them in the studio was a
once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

“I’ve never really sung in the studio with someone else, especially not
with someone whose voice is as good as Ronnie’s,” said Kane Brown. “For
him to be looking at me on the other side of the glass, and both of us
singing, it was just awesome. It felt like we just got comfortable
around each other, so we were really able to kill it.”

With 20 No. One hits stretching back to 1991, two GRAMMY awards, dozens
of ACM and CMA honors and a discography counting more album sales than
any duo in history – regardless of genre – Brooks & Dunn’s influence
on today’s country has never been in question. Hits like “Boot Scootin’
Boogie,” “My Maria” and “Believe” have propelled the duo to more than
30 million albums sold, with the New York Times
heralding “together they helped drive the power-country era of the
early-to-mid 1990s and continued to benefit from the sea change in the
genre they helped initiate right through their most recent albums.”
Their original “Merle Haggard meets The Rolling Stones” vibe made them
progressive stars in their own right. In 2014, the duo announced their
reunion along with long-time friend, Reba McEntire, for a residency
called “Together in Vegas” at The Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace in Las
Vegas, which received rave reviews and continues to be extended
including more shows throughout this year. For more information, visit www.brooks-dunn.com.
