Boot Scootin' Boogie
By Associated Press
Nashville, Tenn – NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Brooks & Dunn are done.
The best-selling country duo posted a message on its Web site Monday saying they've agreed to "call it a day" after 20 years of making music together.
"This ride has been everything and more than we could ever have dreamed ... We owe it all to you, the fans," Kix Brooks and former Tulsa resident Ronnie Dunn said in the message. "If you hear rumors, don't believe them, it's just time."
Brooks & Dunn will release a greatest-hits album on Sept. 8 and tour one last time in 2010.
The duo's many hits include "Boot Scootin' Boogie," "My Maria," "Red Dirt Road" and "Cowgirls Don't Cry" with Reba McEntire.
Their label, Arista Nashville, said the group has sold more than 30 million albums.
