Brooks & Dunn will release new collaborative album Reboot on 5th April 2019 through Arista Nashville/Sony Music Nashville.
The best-selling duo of all-time have teamed up with some of today’s hottest Country stars including Kane Brown, Thomas Rhett, Brett Young, LANCO, Ashley McBryde, Brothers Osborne, Luke Combs, Midland, Cody Johnson, Jon Pardi, Tyler Booth and Kacey Musgraves to remake 12 of their hits.
Working with producer Dan Huff, the duo have given their songs a new spin ranging from edgy-rock intensity to heartbroken EDM, and from retro honky-tonk fun to the exposed nerves of a reflective acoustic ballad. The first tasters from the record are Brand New Man with Luke Combs and Believe with Kane Brown.
“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.”
Brooks & Dunn have had 20 number one hits dating back to 1991. The duo have won two GRAMMY awards, dozens of ACM and CMA honors. They have sold more than 30 million albums and teamed up with Reba McEntire in 2014 for a residency in Las Vegas at The Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace, which has been extended throughout the year.
