Brooks & Dunn - an American country music singer-songwriter duo, comprising of Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn, was formed in 1991 and since then, have won the Vocal Duo Award of the Country Music Association every year between 1992 and 2006, with the exemption of 2000, in which Southern Rock duo Montgomery Gentry took the honor. Other noteworthy awards include the CMA Album of the Year award for 1994 and the Entertainer of the Year gong for 1996. As of 2004, the duo had won 19 CMA awards and remains the leading duo in their genre.
Ronnie - born as Ronnie Gene Dunn in Coleman, Texas on June 1, 1953, was raised in Grove and Tulsa, Oklahoma and Port Isabel, Texas by his truck driver father, and his devout Christian mother. Ronnie graduated from Port Isabel High School in 1971. He briefly attended Abilene Christian College, studying psychology and theology, but got expelled for some of his performances. He won a songwriting and singing promotion with a prize of a trip to Nashville and a potential recording contract. At that time, no contract was offered and Ronnie went back to Tulsa. His wife encouraged him to follow his dream and they returned to Nashville. By 2000, he had won 17 BMI awards. He is currently in the Oklahoma Hall of Fame.
Leon Eric Brooks III a.k.a Kix was born in Shreveport, Louisiana on May 12, 1955. After graduating from Sewanee Military Academy, He briefly attended LA Tech University as a Theatre Arts major. He moved to Alaska to work for his Father on an oil pipeline for one summer and then returned to LA Tech to finish his education. He then moved to Maine and wrote advertising for his sister and brother-in-law's company. His father urged him to pursue his desire of being a musician and Kix moved to Nashville in the early 1980s. His then girlfriend (now wife Barbara) followed subsequently. He began working for Tree Publishing as a staff songwriter. He recorded his first solo single, "Baby, When Your Heart Breaks Down", for Avion in 1983, but returned to songwriting after its failure. He also released an album, Kix Brooks, in 1989 on Capitol Records. By 2000, he had won 6 BMI awards. As of January 2006, Kix Brooks is the new host of American Country Countdown, a well-known syndicated radio program formerly hosted by Bob Kingsley.
Brooks & Dunn's music swathes a range of modern country music, and their chart-topping hits have included everything from the Ronan Keating-penned ballad "The Long Goodbye," through the Rivers Rutherford-written "Ain't Nothing About You," to the gospel music-influenced "Believe." They forged the way of the line dance craze of the mid-1990s. One of their hits, "Boot Scootin' Boogie" is most exemplary of this style.
Both band members write, sing, and play guitar. The 2004 smash "Red Dirt Road" which the duo wrote together is a perfect example of their self-creation. Also, both have served as song-writers for other artists. Ronnie Dunn co-wrote country superstar Toby Keith's song "Don't Leave (I Think I Love You)" which appeared on his 2003 album Shock'n Y'all. Dunn's vocal performances have tended to be released as radio singles. In fact, only one of the duo's several #1's - "You're Gonna Miss Me When I'm Gone" has featured Kix on lead vocals.
Brooks & Dunn are celebrated for their high-energy stage shows. Recent tours have featured Australian country singer Keith Urban, fellow duo Montgomery Gentry, and successful country newcomer Gretchen Wilson. In 2006, the duo opened for the Rolling Stones at their Omaha, Nebraska show.
Interestingly, the couple's songs have been used by President George W. Bush as his official campaign songs in both his election and re-election campaigns. In 2000, the then Texas Governor chose the blue-collar line-dance-friending hit of the mid-1990s, "Hard Workin' Man," and in 2004, the President selected the (pre-9/11) hit patriotic "Only in America." Brooks & Dunn both supported the President's re-election campaign, performing at a Republican rally featuring Laura Bush on the eve of the election.
Worth mentioning here that, the duo have made appearances on several other artist's albums as well; they recorded the duet "If You See Him/If You See Her" with Reba McEntire and most recently Ronnie recorded a duet with Keith Urban on Urban's newest album, Love, Pain & the whole crazy thing. Ronnie also recorded a duet with teenaged country newcomer Ashley Monroe.
Brooks & Dunn have been nominated twice for Duo Video of the Year in the CMT Music Awards. They have been nominated for "Hillbilly Deluxe" and for "Building Bridges".

The single helped initiate the line-dancing fad rocked-up country music bars across the country. Selling over five million copies of their debut album, Brand New Man transformed the duo into country superstars. The two also set out on an extensive tour for the promotion of album.

Brooks & Dunn came up with their follow-up album, Hard Workin' Man. Like its predecessor, the Hard Workin' Man added to Brooks & Dunn's success with five Top Five country smashes. With such super-hits as That Ain't No Way to Go, Rock My World (Little Country Girl), She Used to Be Mine and We'll Burn That Bridge' - Hard Workin' Man sold over four million copies. In 1994, the two released their third full-length album, Waitin' on Sundown. The album was another fixture on quiet storm. It spawned five Top Ten hit singles which included You're Gonna Miss Me When I'm Gone, She's Not the Cheatin' Kind, I'll Never Forgive My Heart, Little Miss Honky Tonk, and Whiskey Under the Bridge.
Waitin' on Sundown received double platinum status and propelled Brooks & Dunn into a blockbuster success. The duo continued their commercial success and issued Borderline in 1996. With two # 1 hit singles like A Man This Lonely and My Maria - Borderline proved to be a double platinum album. The following year saw the duo releasing The Greatest Hits Compilation. It spawned He's Got You and Honky Tonk Truth. They issued If You See Her in 1998, Tight Rope in 1999, and Steers and Stripes in 2001, along with several hot singles.
