Just announced, Brooks and Dunn will be preforming  at Amway Center on June 10 2023.  They are hitting the stage together for the Reboot 2023 Tour.  Opening for the boys will be Scotty McCreery.

Brooks And Dunn

Brooks & Dunn came into the country music scene in 1991, and had overnight success.

Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn are one of the most creative pairings in country music.  Brooks & Dunn’s debut album, Brand New Man, launched the duo toward stardom with four consecutive #1 hits. They went on to become the best-selling country duo of all time, earning forty-one Top Ten hits including twenty #1 songs.   They also collected dozens of music-industry honors, including two Grammys, nineteen Country Music Association awards, and thirty Academy of Country Music awards.

Leon Eric Brooks III earned his nickname, Kix, because of his behavior in his mother’s womb, but the name later fit his performance style, as he strutted, danced and kicked on stage.

Ronnie Eugene Dunn said his dad was a hot-tempered, maniac honky-tonker, while his mother was a Bible-carrying Baptist and has a little of both in him.   He attended Abilene Christian College as a seminary student but left after school administrators chastised him for singing in bars.

Scotty McCreery

After winning the 10th season of American Idol, Scotty went back to school for his senior year while promoting his debut album, ‘Clear as Day.’  After graduating, he continued his education at N.C. State University. McCreery released a Christmas album, ‘Christmas With Scotty McCreery,’ in 2012, and dropped his second studio album of new songs, ‘See You Tonight,’ in October of 2013, debuting at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.   In 2017 when “Five More Minutes” became the first of three straight No. 1 hits.

    Darius Rucker is definitely country music’s most passionate NFL football fan. He famously said that he has two seasons, “football season and waiting for football season.” A lifelong Miami Dolphins fan, he often sings that National Anthem at their games and did so this past September 2021 when the Dolphins played the Buffalo Bills. When he fronted Hootie and The Blowfish, he wrote the band’s biggest song, “I Only Want To Be With You,” in college when he was so upset that his Dolphins were losing, he started to cry, and his mother called him a baby. Rucker also has his own line of NFL wear.
