There comes a time when all cowboys ride into the sunset – and for the popular country duo Brooks & Dunn, that time has come.
Earlier this week, Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn announced that after their 2010 tour, fittingly called "The Last Rodeo," they'll go their separate ways.
But why, after a 20-year partnership, have they decided to split? "It's too good a horse to ride it into the ground," Brooks said Wednesday in Nashville during a taping of CMT's Invitation Only special. "We're still good friends. I'm proud to say we've never had a fight, never even yelled at each other. And that's the truth."
