About Brooks & Dunn
With 20 No. 1 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. The duo’s recently released collaboration project “Reboot” debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums. The impressive feat marks the first time the duo has topped the album charts since 2009, while simultaneously earning the duo its 10th Billboard 200 Top 10 album, the most of any country duo or group in the chart’s history.
In 2019, the duo was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in the “Modern Era Artist” category. In 2021, Brooks & Dunn undertook their first nationwide tour in 10 years with their anticipated “The Reboot 2021 Tour,” as well as wrapped their hugely successful and the longest-running country residency in Las Vegas, “Reba, Brooks & Dunn: Together in Vegas.”
