They officially announced their retirement in 2009 and haven’t released an album since, but in a surprise twist – they have unveiled their newest project filled with big-name country stars joining them on a brand new record!
Brooks & Dunn are two of the most-famous names in country music (especially 90s country) and they’ve continued to perform on stage with Reba McEntire as part of their multi-year residency in Las Vegas – but for the last 10 years they have always considered the band “retired.”

The final show of their tour called The Last Rodeo was performed on September 2nd, 2010 and left many people begging for them to come out of retirement and bring the good music back.
After a good while and each of them signing on with Arista Nashville as solo artists, they both released their own solo albums before coming back together for their Las Vegas show with good friend and gal-pal, Reba.
