The best-selling duo of all time Brooks & Dunn are continuing to give fans a taste of what to expect from their upcoming collaboration project REBOOT out April 5, sharing “Ain’t Nothing 'Bout You” with Brett Young, available HERE.
The new collaboration offers up a twist on the track, which in the hands of producer Dann Huff and Brett Young takes on a sexy, urban sheen – topped off with a slick saxophone outro.
“Dann really ran with this one,” Ronnie Dunn explains. “He locked into this funky groove on the guitar with a killer light-R&B vibe, and it’s perfect for Brett’s voice.”
“I was so honored to get asked to be on this project with Brooks & Dunn, the lineup on this record is through-the-roof talent and the guys are country music icons,” added Brett Young about the experience. “As soon as I got into the studio Ronnie and Kix made me feel so comfortable, which I was so thankful for, and I can’t wait for everyone to hear what we came up with together."
REBOOT will see Brooks & Dunn team up with Kane Brown, Thomas Rhett, Brett Young, LANCO, Ashley McBryde, Brothers Osborne, Luke Combs, Midland, Cody Johnson, Jon Pardi, Tyler Booth and Kacey Musgraves on re-ignited versions of their biggest hits. Fans who pre-order REBOOT will instantly receive the new song alongside “Brand New Man” with Luke Combs, “My Next Broken Heart” with Jon Pardi, “Believe” with Kane Brown and "Mama Don’t Get Dressed Up for Nothing” with LANCO ahead of its release.
It was also revealed this week that Brooks & Dunn will be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in the “Modern Era Artist” category. A formal induction ceremony will take place at the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum later this year. A Country Music Hall of Fame exhibit on Brooks & Dunn will also open Aug. 9. The museum’s exhibition will recall their early careers as solo artists and songwriters, the circumstances that united them as performers, and their innovative approach to stage production and touring.
The duo were also announced as performers on this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards. Their performance will air live on Sunday, April 7, 2019 at 8:00 PM ET / delayed PT on CBS.
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 country 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,” “Only in America,” 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.
