Brooks & Dunn were a country singer-songwriter duo, consisting of Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn. Here are some quotes by Kix Brooks about the due.

“We were influenced by classic country acts like Merle Haggard and George Jones and Hank Williams but also by Clapton and the Stones and all the rock acts like that. I mean, what guitar player didn’t start out with ‘Satisfaction’?” – Kix Brooks

“Our business is based in Nashville, and it always will be, but New York City is still our No. 1 or No. 2 market. There’s an amazing history of country music here; most people just don’t realize. Garth (Brooks) is still the biggest concert that was ever in (Central) Park.” – Kix Brooks

“We went totally out of our genre to make sure we weren’t doing the same old thing.” – Kix Brooks

“New York actually took notice of us and it wasn’t in a hokey, hay-bale kind of way.” – Kix Brooks

“We never take this stuff for granted. The longer we’re out here, too, in a lot of ways, the more we appreciate it, because we see so many great acts who’re out here with us, and you realize how steep the competition really is. So, this win is even better ’cause it says people are still digging what we’re doing. We’re still keeping it fresh and people are into it.” – Kix Brooks

“It’s a doggone Tucson choir out here on ‘Neon Moon.’ Y’all are good.” – Kix Brooks

“I don’t think we should try to do what the Stones do. Hopefully, it will be the best of what we do.” – Kix Brooks

“That’s just a part of your soul. I couldn’t be complacent about that no matter how much I wanted to. Sometimes thinking I have to write songs for an album feels like I have to study for an exam. Then as soon as I start writing I remember how much I love the process. We both do.” – Kix Brooks

“He gave us a lot of freedom, and he has a lot of respect for what we do.” – Kix Brooks

“They haven’t come up with the force of nature that can stop us. Because we live to play, and no matter what it takes, we WILL find a way to make it happen. It may not be according to the original plan, but we don’t care… we just wanna get out there and shake it up.” – Kix Brooks

“We are competing against ourselves. There’s 28 million people who have Brooks & Dunn CDs … The challenge is to come up with Brooks & Dunn music that’s not something they’ve got already. That’s what we are really up against.” – Kix Brooks

“I know every time I turn the corner he’s working on something. I think it would probably be easier if I was by myself to head for the Caribbean for a month and just tell everybody to leave me alone. But when I know he’s sitting over here working, it doesn’t allow me to do that.” – Kix Brooks

“They asked us last night if we’d be interested in doing some more shows with them, and we said, ‘Yeah.’ So we’re just kinda looking at all the options right now. It would be fun to do some more shows with them. We’re just trying to see how our schedules work out.” – Kix Brooks

“We’ve got our friends in the world of sports,” – Kix Brooks

“We don’t want our fans to think we’re just stupid goofballs.” – Kix Brooks

“And you know, … it is pretty much a rallying cry for everything we do. I mean, we may turn those guitars up — and play hard and loud — but in the end, we’re all about taking country music and setting it on stun. That’s what we do, and that’s what this song is about.” – Kix Brooks

“I knew doing a rap-country song like ‘Whiskey Do My Talkin” was a good move, … It totally opened the urban side of honky tonk up to us, not to mention there being plenty of good old fashioned amped up country on this one.” – Kix Brooks
