Kix Brooks Says the Brooks & Dunn—The Last Rodeo tribute by Fellow Nashville Stars and Others is ‘Very Humbling’

There’s not much Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn of Brooks & Dunn haven’t experienced  and achieved during their 20 years as a country music duo. Among their many other honors, Brooks & Dunn have a total of 27 ACM Awards—more than any other artist in history—including three Entertainer of the Year awards and, most recently, a Top Vocal Duo award they received during the ACM Awards in April. But there’s one more award to be presented. During Sunday night’s ACM Presents: Brooks & Dunn—The Last Rodeo star-studded television tribute (airing at 8 p.m. ET on CBS), Kix and Ronnie will receive the Academy’s Milestone Award in recognition of their incredible 20-year career. Artists performing on the special include Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Faith Hill, Jennifer Hudson, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Darius Rucker, George Strait, Sugarland, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban. Presenters are Dr. Maya Angelou, Miranda Cosgrove and Matthew McConaughey.

  • Beth Harnish

    any way we can watch it online; I missed most of it!

  • Karen Brown

    I would like to know if there is a cd avaliable from “The Last Rodeo” tribute?

  • I don’t think they’re doing a “Last Rodeo” CD but they do have a career-spanning double-disc collection, “#1s … and then some,” which features 30 favorites, including 23 number 1 hits. We’ll keep you posted if they announce anything.

  • MJ Hawkins

    Sure hope the ACM releases a CD of all the amazing performers playing the Brook & Dunn songs on last rodeo yesterday. I’d buy it in a heart beat. It was an amazing show!!!!

  • MT Cromley

    I would buy those performances in CD form in a second. I hope the ACM releases the performances.

    I hope there will be re-runs???!!!!! For those serving overseas, a lot of people missed this great event….

  • It’s January 2011 and I still love watching CBS’s 2010 Brooks & Dunn Last Rodeo Tribute (via uTube videos). Wish I could purchase CD and DVD (more than one for presents) of this great TV special, if made available!!! What a class act and gathering of performers!!!
