Overview

Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn tapped into a lucrative country-rock vein on their debut and mined it for all it was worth. Both have been consistently memorable songwriters, and Dunn's distinctive rebel yell (best heard on "Brand New Man") can make you think General Lee is coming to town. Out of 19 tracks here, there's not a loser to be found -- a remarkable feat considering they were all issued within a seven-year span. What makes this collection so pleasing is its variety; barn burners like "Honky Tonk Truth," "Hard Workin' Man," and "Rock My World (Little Country Girl)" are some of the most kinetic singles to come out of '90s Nashville. Two-steppers will be shuffling to "Boot Scootin' Boogie" and "Whiskey Under the Bridge" in dance halls 30 years from now. In an age of soundalike hat acts, B&D can veer from foot-stompers to ballads like "You're Gonna Miss Me When I'm Gone" to pop remakes like "My Maria" with uncanny ease. In their hands, versatility is a beautiful thing.
