Country and Western duo Brooks and Dunn, the biggest-selling pairing in country music history, are splitting up after 20 years together.
Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn said in a statement that “it’s just time. After 20 years of making music and riding this trail together, we have agreed as a duo that it’s time call it a day.”
“This ride has been everything and more than we could ever have dreamed. We owe it all to you, the fans. If you hear rumors, don’t believe them, it’s just time.”
Brooks and Dunn have had 20 No. 1 singles, have sold more than 30 million albums, and have won two grammys. All isn’t lost for fans yet though: the pair said that they would undertake a farewell tour before breaking up.
