Interesting facts and trivia about Brooks & Dunn. By Songfactsยฎ.

Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn were both solo recording artists before becoming a duo. They reluctantly got together in 1990 through the suggestion of Tim DuBois, the founder of the Nashville branch of Los Angeles-based artist management firm Fitzgerald-Hartley, who'd recently been appointed head of Arista Nashville. "A record company guy convinced us that we should be a duo," Brooks recalled to Larry King. "On a Tuesday, over an enchilada, was the day I met him, and we were like, 'We don't wanna do this. We don't know each other. I mean, this is just silly.'"

The 2003 hit "Red Dirt Road" was a rare co-writing collaboration between the Brooks & Dunn duo. Most of their songs were either penned by just one of the pair or by outside writers.

Brooks & Dunn took a detour from their music in 2008, when they released a book titled The Adventures of Slim and Howdy. The musicians came up with the characters, which were fictionalized cowboy versions of themselves, and worked with writer Bill Fitzhugh on the manuscript. "We didn't want them to be Dukes of Hazzard silly," Brooks said of the characters to Billboard magazine. "We wanted them to be that kind of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid smile โ€” [not] too heavy, but at the same time [with] a good sense of humor."
