Review : Brooks & Dunn - The Essential Brooks & Dunn
Rough StockPrior to their break up in 2009, Brooks & Dunn were setting about releasing the retrospective album #1’s…and Then Some. Now titled The Essential Brooks and Dunn, and issued in 2012, the album remains the very same collection of songs.

(Dunn released "Ronnie Dunn" in 2011 and Kix Brooks, in addition to the American Country Countdown radio program, has released his debut single "New To This Town" in early 2012)....full text

Brooks & Dunn brought a lot of kick and fun to contemporary country radio, and they did it with focus and integrity. ...full text
