Brooks & Dunn have been making music since 1991 when they released their first album Brand New Man. They are still making great music and entertaining huge crowds today. Kix Brooks, who is 54 years old, is the more entertaining, energetic performer. Ronnie Dunn, who is 56 years old, is the quieter more introspective performer with a powerful voice that once heard, you never forget. It is a partnership that has served them well for 18 years and they are still going strong.

So come along with me for a concert photo journey of some of the pictures I took at the Great Jones County Fair in Iowa on July 23, 2009. The concert was about 1-1/2 hrs long and included some their best new hits like Indian Summer and Cowgirls Don’t Cry (they showed the awesome music video with Reba McEntire during this song) along with some of the classics like Neon Moon, You’re Gonna Miss Me and the song that helped start the line dancing fad still done at country dances today, Boot Scootin’ Boogie. Their inspiring hit Only in America had a backdrop of 5 American flags and red, white and blue streamers burst out over the crowd about halfway through the song. Then a member of each of the 4 military groups marched on the stage and stood with a salute to the end of the song – a very touching moment.

I enjoyed watching the drummer – check him out in the pictures. After the second or third song, Ronnie disappeared for a while and Kix announced he would be singing a few songs alone…. Ronnie had just swallowed a bug! But he was fine when he returned. The multimedia show was excellent. They alternated between music videos, pictures of the band and the crowd and other cool graphics.

It was obvious to me that Brooks & Dunn still enjoy putting on a concert and performing for the fans. That’s why they still pack the concert venues. The fact that Brooks & Dunn will play at a venue such as a county fair speaks volumes about their character. I thoroughly enjoyed this concert. I hope they continue making great music. This is the second concert of theirs I have attended….and it probably won’t be the last.

The first selection is their new release coming out Sept 09.


Well, this probably will be my last Brooks & Dunn concert after all. Their recent announcement to go their separate ways was very surprising to me. They are not quitting until after a tour in 2010 promoting their #1's CD, which comes out in September. After almost twenty years of music success I suppose you can't blame them. Kix Brooks has his ACC countdown every Sunday. I wonder what Ronnie Dunn will pursue? Anyway, their music will never die - it is timeless. Thanks, guys!
