Brooks & Dunn have firmly established themselves as one of country music’s premier acts. They are no strangers to sharing their talents for fundraising events, too.

Back in 2003, Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn took the stage to perform “Only in America” as part of Farm Aid held that year in Columbus, Ohio.

Here’s a look back at that incredible performance.

Also, the singing-songwriting duo recently sent out best wishes to their fans prior to Thanksgiving on Twitter.

Conversely, at the 2020 CMT Music Awards, they performed with Luke Combs on Oct. 21.

Other performers appearing on the show included Ashley McBryde, Dan + Shay, Kane Brown, Little Big Town, Luke Bryan, and Maren Morris.

Meanwhile, here is a clip of the trio singing “1, 2 Many” on the awards show.

This Duo Has Been Making Music Since The 1990s

According to the duo’s website, “With 20 No. 1 hits stretching back to 1991, two Grammy awards, dozens of ACM and CMA honors, and a discography counting more album sales than any country duo in history – regardless of genre – Brooks & Dunn’s influence on today’s country has never been in question.

“Hits like ‘Boot Scootin’ Boogie,’ ‘My Maria,’ ‘Only in America,’ and ‘Believe’ have propelled the duo to more than 30 million albums sold, with the New York Times heralding ‘together they helped drive the power-country era of the early-to-mid 1990s and continued to benefit from the sea change in the genre they helped initiate right through their most recent albums.’ Their original ‘Merle Haggard meets The Rolling Stones’ vibe made them progressive stars in their own right.”
