Brooks & Dunn: Kings of Neon

Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn rocketed to stardom in the 1990s, and for two decades, they remained leaders in country music, with hits including “Neon Moon,” “Boot Scootin’ Boogie,” “Hard Workin’ Man,” “My Maria” and “Red Dirt Road.”

The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum will tell the story of the best-selling country duo of all time, Country Music Hall of Fame members-elect Brooks & Dunn, in the exhibition Brooks & Dunn: Kings of Neon. The exhibit encompasses the duo’s early solo careers, the circumstances that united them as performers and their innovative approach to stage production and touring.
