12 Songs, 47 Minutes

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.

disappointed

I'm not a fan of this album. Despite my tastes running more towards rock now, ( grew up as a Brooks & Dunn fan and I followed Ronnie Dunn into his solo career...but this album bothers me. It's a cashgrab of duets that are nowhere near as good as the original singles and it lacks largely lacks the thing that made Brooks & Dunn unique in the first place--Ronnie Dunn's vocals. I would have much rather had the new Ronnie Dunn solo album we've been promised or a new original Brooks & Dunn album. This is essentially a greatest hits album without the elements that made the hits good in the first place. 2.5.

This isn’t new music

Be like George Strait. Put out new music and help save country music.

Made me cry GOOD tears!

Seriously beautiful duets. Can’t believe how many people are hating on it (and didn’t even buy/listen to the whole album 🙄). It’s mixing new country with legends. Creativity abound, not ruining anything. The haters obviously don’t like change or appreciate this kind of art. Thank you B&D and your artistry, talent, and new twists on your classic music.
