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.
