Brooks & Dunn return to action with Reba

Wednesday, December 3, 2014 – Brooks & Dunn are back - with Reba.

The duo announced Wednesday that they would do a Las Vegas residency along with Reba McEntire.

The residency, called "REBA, BROOKS & DUNN: Together in Vegas," opens June 24 at The Colosseum at Ceasars Palace. They are doing shows June 26-27, July 1, 3 and 4 and Dec. 2, 4, 6, 9, 11 and 12. Tickets go on a fan-pre-sale at 2 p.m. eastern today and ending at 1 a.m. eastern time Thursday with the password RBDTOGETHER. Tickets go on sale to the public at 1 p.m. eastern on Thursday. Ticket prices range from $59.50 to $205.

Ronnie Dunn has been hinting that something was up with his long-time partner Kix Brooks in recent postings on Facebook. The two split in 2010 with each going on their own.

Both Dunn and McEntire recently signed with the new Nash Icon label, which is run by Big Machine Label Group and Cumulus Media.

This will not be the first time that Brooks & Dunn and McEntire have teamed up. They had a hit single with "If You See Him/If You See Her" in 1998 and appeared on both of their albums. They also sang together on "Cowgirls Don't Cry" in 2008.

Reboot CD review - Reboot
Brooks and Dunn return with the duo's first studio album in a dozen years. Sort of. That's because they revisit a dozen of their hits (leaving a bunch behind) with contemporary country singers. "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 expand their fan base. »»»
#1s ... and then some 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. »»»
Cowboy Town 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 Must Be »»»
