Editors’ Notes After a recording hiatus lasting more than a decade, Brooks & Dunn—the Country Music Hall of Famers who've inspired not only the genre's modern duo resurgence but everyone from Kacey Musgraves to Ashley McBryde—are back. And this time, they have a few friends in tow: As Lionel Richie and Ronnie Milsap did before them, Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn have enlisted artists generations younger on re-recordings of their classic songs with the likes of Luke Combs, Kane Brown, Musgraves, and McBryde. The R&B influence or cosmic cowgirl sounds of these contemporaries might not feel like a natural fit with Brooks & Dunn's neotrad stylings, but it all works seamlessly—whether it's capturing the honky-tonk spirit alongside Midland on "Boot Scootin' Boogie" or getting funky with Thomas Rhett on "My Maria." Reboot might be built on the past, but in these 12 collaborations, it paints a direct line straight to the present—and positions them to head into whatever sort of future they can conjure up.
