Two weeks before the April 5 release of their new album, Reboot, Brooks & Dunn have shared another track from the project: “Ain’t Nothing ’Bout You,” which features Brett Young.
The upcoming album features an all-star cast of artists performing duets with country’s best-selling duo, including Kacey Musgraves, Kane Brown, Thomas Rhett, Brett Young, Lanco, Ashley McBryde, Midland, Luke Combs, Brothers Osborne, Cody Johnson, Jon Pardi and Tyler Booth.
Brooks & Dunn took “Ain’t Nothing ’Bout You” to the top of the Billboard chart in 2001.
“This whole experience has been humbling to say the least,” says Ronnie Dunn. “What a cool rush to hear somebody do one of your tunes in a unique way, and it still holds up. That’s the greatest compliment you can get as an artist. People used to ask us all the time about the legacy we wanted to leave, and it’s honestly just that—you hope the music stands up over time. This is the first opportunity we’ve had to run it up a new flagpole . . . and it really flies.”
“They’re making their own music,” says Kix Brooks about the Reboot guest list. “But just like we did, they still remember and respect the music they grew up with. It makes you feel good that these acts were inspired by us in some small way.”
“I was so honored to get asked to be on this project with Brooks & Dunn, the lineup on this record is through-the-roof talent and the guys are country music icons,” added Brett. “As soon as I got into the studio Ronnie and Kix made me feel so comfortable, which I was so thankful for, and I can’t wait for everyone to hear what we came up with together.”
The new album will be Brooks & Dunn’s first studio album since 2007’s Cowboy Town.
