Ronnie Dunn and Kix Brooks parted ways as a duo in 2010, but it seems like there are still some hard feelings between the two. Ronnie took to Facebook on Friday (November 1st) to post:
“Will you do some trivia research for me? 1. The LAST Brooks and Dunn #1 was what song and what year? 2. What year did Kix take over American Country Countdown? RD”
The last Brooks & Dunn chart-topper was “Play Something Country” in 2005, and Kix began his radio career in early 2006.
Kix responded to Ronnie’s by writing in part, “This one really makes me sad pard — whatever you’ve got going on with your attack on Radio now is certainly your business, but when someone said you’d implied that my hosting ACC had something to do with any lack of BnD success at Radio i didn’t believe it . . . i sat down with you and asked you what you thought, and said i would never do it if you thought there was any chance it would not be good for us — you encouraged me to do so — it’s been really fun for me — today our dear friend Reba called to congratulate me on winning the National Air Personality award — i was so excited, and then i read this . . . i cherish the years we made music and ran the road together -thanks to these fans we certainly got to live the dream. I’ve always admired your singing, and I think you’ve always been admired for being one of the best — not sure what all this is about — wish all our fans the best — this music was for you — thanks for the ride — let’s take a break on the hate.”
Ronnie responded again writing, “This is about the competitive environment of conglomerated radio . . . nothing negative about the guy in the cowboy hat. ‘Play Something Country’ was the last #1 B&D had. Kix taking over the countdown on a major conglomerate’s network in a highly competitive environment was the beginning of the end for B&D.”
