Biography: Brooks And Dunn
Country music superstars Leon Eric "Kix" Brooks and Ronnie Gene Dunn come from strikingly different backgrounds.
Brooks, a Louisiana native, performed at ski resorts in Maine before moving to Nashville to become a songwriter. A Texan, Dunn attended a conservative Christian university, but was kicked out for playing music on the side. Dunn moved to Tulsa in the '80s, where he won a songwriting contest, and soon went to a recording session in Nashville and had his first meeting with Brooks. In this in-depth profile, learn how these two very different musicians were eventually brought together by Arista Records executive Tim DuBois, and how their vibrant mix of hard-charging country, potent emotions, and serious swagger helped their first album, Brand New Man, sell more than six million copies.
From their early hits, including "Boot Scootin' Boogie," to their 2001 anthem 'Only in America," Biography presents this comprehensive looking into the successful career of this award-winning duo.
