At the risk of alientating some readers…
Y’all, Brooks and Dunn broke up! According to the AP, the duo talked about their decision to call it quits yesterday at the taping of a CMT (Country Music Television, dur…best country music video marathons ever) show. Don’t get excited about Destiny’s Child-style drama, though: this is an amicable split because they basically ran out of ideas. Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn say they “remain good friends and have never had a ‘good fight’ or even yelled at each other.” Aww.
Now, I think country music is awesome in pretty much all its forms. I know some people don’t agree, but I say those people are missing out. (Plus, I’m from Colorado, so cowboys are my people. I have genuine respect for men who can unironically pull off tight jeans, cowboy boots and hat, and a bolo tie.) Country music makes me feel safe and warm and cozy inside, and this song is one of my favorites:
Bye, boys! We — and by “we” I mean “I,” as I don’t think Kathleen would support the sentiments of this post — will miss you.
