After two decades in the business, Brooks & Dunn are done. The legendary country music duo played their final show at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on Sept. 2.
“This isn’t a funeral,” Kix Brooks told the sold out crowd, according to AOL's The Boot. “We did come here to party.”
The crowd gave Brooks and Ronnie Dunn a standing ovation before the pair played a single song, although there was plenty of time for that. Over the course of the evening, the duo covered just about every hit in their career together, from classics like “Boot Scootin’ Boogie” and “Red Dirt Road” to new favorites like “Put A Girl In It.”
And they took their own advice, putting a very, very famous girl in their show during the song "Cowgirls Don't Cry." A special appearance by Reba McEntire brought the crowd to their feet yet again.
The pair closed out the show with “Brand New Man,” the first single they ever released. After the final notes played, Brooks took his signature cowboy hat off his head for the last time, tossed it into the cheering crowd, and nudged Dunn playfully as the lights went dark.
