The best-selling duo of all time, Brooks & Dunn, debuts at No. One this week on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart with their collaboration project REBOOT. The impressive feat marks the first time the duo has topped the album charts since 2009 while simultaneously earning the duo their 10th Billboard 200 Top 10 album, the most of any country duo or group in the chart’s history. The 12-track collection produced by Dann Huff “revisits some of the duo’s most iconic songs with Country’s up and coming talent including Kane Brown, Thomas Rhett, Brett Young, LANCO, Ashley McBryde, Brothers Osborne, Luke Combs, Midland, Cody Johnson, Jon Pardi, Tyler Booth and Kacey Musgraves.
“We always said that after all the crazy highs we’ve had along this journey, that the most important thing to us was that the music that held up over time,” said Ronnie Dunn. “To have a No. One record with these songs we love is wild and we’re so happy to have worked on this project with so many current talents. It is a testament to the power of collaboration.”
“These songs are so important to us, and we’re so thankful that they have had this chance to have new life breathed into them,” added Kix Brooks. “We had so much fun in the studio with everyone, it’s been a really special project for us.”
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 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.
