The duo was formed by the suggestion of Tim Dubois. Kix Brooks & Ronnie Dunn were both solo country artists when they teamed up in 1990. Who would have known that when these two guys came together they would become one of the most successful duos in country music history?

Brooks & Dunn have released 50 singles in their career and 20 of them went all the way to number one on the Hot Country Songs charts. What is even more impressive is that they had an additional 19 singles that cracked the top 10. So 39 of the 50 singles in their career have been at least a top 10 hit.
