Congrats to Brooks and Dunn!
These guys deserve it!
Best-selling country duo of all time Brooks & Dunn, comedian and singer Ray Stevens and record executive Jerry Bradley joined the Country Music Hall of Fame in a star-filled ceremony on Sunday night that was full of tributes to their hit songs and their lasting legacies in country music.
Reba McEntire, Luke Bryan, Trisha Yearwood, Ricky Skaggs, Marty Stuart and Travis Tritt were among the guest performers during the medallion ceremony in Nashville at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Each inductee received a medallion and a plaque that will be placed inside the Hall of Fame rotunda.
Brooks & Dunn were an unlikely pairing of two artists who both started out solo. Neither Kix Brooks nor Ronnie Dunn thought the partnership would last, but decades later they are the most awarded and best-selling country duo of all time, with 19 CMA Awards, two Grammys and 25 Academy of Country Music Awards and 20 No. 1 hits. Brooks’ flamboyant nature and guitar playing brought the perfect counterpoint to Dunn’s stellar singing, but more understated personality.
