Presented by Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum at Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, Nashville TN

Ongoing
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.

Brooks & Dunn Exhibition Highlights

Items featured in Brooks & Dunn: Kings of Neon include awards, custom-built instruments and personal artifacts. Some highlights:

  • Dozens of awards presented to Brooks & Dunn between 1992 and 2006, including Grammys, CMA and ACM awards
