EDITORS’ NOTES

Hard Workin’ Man cemented Brooks & Dunn’s standing as country superstars by achieving the perfect synthesis of old-school honky-tonk and roadhouse-rocking modern country. Hearing the way the pair tear into mostly self-penned tunes about everything from romantic wreckage (the half-crazed intensity of “Heartbroke Out of My Mind”) to working-class woes (the weary-eyed optimism of “Our Time Is Coming”), it’s a wonder there was enough country-boy charisma and crack songwriting left to go around for the rest of Nashville.
