Kix Brooks Punked by Ronnie Dunn

January 1st, 2009 | Categories: Fake News | Discussion: 6 comments

New year, new feature. Real country music news is all over the internet, but where to turn for all the latest fake country music news? With these new Onion-style blurbs, Country California has you covered.

Kix Brooks was surprised to receive a text message from Ronnie Dunn on Tuesday with news that the duo’s next single would be “Drop in the Bucket” from 2007’s Cowboy Town. Brooks, who has not sung lead on a Brooks & Dunn single since “South of Santa Fe” hit the charts with a resounding thud in 1999, reportedly bootscooted around his living room in wild jubilation for ten minutes before noticing that a second text from Dunn had arrived. That follow-up message, which had in fact been sent just a few seconds after the first, was devastatingly short and to the point: jk. As of press time, the two men are not yet back on speaking terms.

    I didn’t read the two line intro as the names Brooks and Dunn caught my eye, and I actually believed it!

    Nice! Wish I’d have thought of the idea first. :)

    I always thought Kix has some great material, but they choose not to release it. “Drop…” would be a horrible choice, anyway. I would have loved if they had released “She Likes to Get Out of Town” from the last album.

    Funny article, though ha.

    I agree, CF. “She Likes to Get Out of Town” is amazing! I know he does it live, but it would have been a definite hit. I think Arista Nashville don’t dare to put out a non-Ronnie track, but to be fair to Kix, “South of Santa Fe” wasn’t that good a song. It was an OK album track, but it wasn’t exactly radio-friendly.

    “She Likes to Get Out of Town” is MY song! Seriously. It was written by me…especially now at 4:23pm on a Friday! I love that song and it’s the only reason I ever listen to “Hillbilly Deluxe”

    Great new feature. I look forward to more :)
