Brooks & Dunn set to release new CD in October

Tuesday, July 17, 2007 – Brooks & Dunn are set to deliver their all-new Arista Nashville album, "Cowboy Town," due Oct. 2. The first single, the Ronnie Dunn/Terry McBride/Marv Green-penned "Proud of the House We Built," is in the Top 20.

The duo produced the disc with Tony Brown. Dunn said, "This really is kind of like cowboys meet the Rolling Stones. There's a bunch of fun stuff on there. And it sounds different than anything we've ever done."

"The record took on a personality," he continued. "It was just a few days ago that we decided to call it Cowboy Town. That song came along. Every time we got to a song meeting to finalize the record, we come in with a bunch of songs. We go, 'What about this?' They go, 'Cut those, too!'"

Brooks said, "We really need to get this out," as Dunn laughed, "because neither one of us will let ourselves stop until this thing's released!"

The duo's most recent collection, the platinum-plus "Hillbilly Deluxe," launched four hits, including the title track; the award-winning "Building Bridges"; their 23rd number 1 single, "Play Something Country" and the ACM and CMA-honored Song of the Year, "Believe."

Brooks & Dunn are on the road with Alan Jackson tour through this fall.

"Reboot" is a cross between a tribute album and a redo, and overwhelmingly, the idea works. The general idea is that the guest artist will trade lines with Brooks or Dunn. One could surmise that Brooks & Dunn did this kind of album to introduce these chestnuts in an attempt to ...
CD review - #1s ... and then some Brooks & Dunn are the most popular duo in country history racking up lots of hits and awards, but they amicably called it a career with plans to go their separate ways after a farewell 2010 tour. This two-CD set contains 30 songs, but aside from 2 new songs, there's not much reason to buy this set. The quality certainly is there as 20 of the songs reached the top of the chart. The new songs - both were released as singles - were Honky Tonk Stomp, featuring ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons, and Indian Summer. ...
CD review - Cowboy Town If your idea of a cowboy is Cowboy Troy and the guys from Big & Rich, then sure, this new Brooks & Dunn album is named appropriately. For it's the city-bred hat crowd that the majority of these songs are aimed at or at least the women that married them. Their last couple of albums saw them gain some critical acclaim with songs like the stirring "Believe," but there's nothing that immediately memorable here. Instead, we get the fuzzy current events theology of, "God ...
