About the Song

Ever wonder what Brooks & Dunn’s first ever song is? Interestingly, it is also the duo’s first no. 1 single.

Released in June 1991, “Brand New Man” is the first song co-penned and recorded by American country music duo Brooks & Dunn. It is the first single at the same time the title track of their debut album of the same name. In addition, the song was produced by American record producers Don Cook and Scott Hendricks.

A song that graced the duo’s introduction to country music, “Brand New Man” first entered the charts on June 22, 1991. It immediately made its position and placed no. 1 on both the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks and Canada RPM Country Tracks. Moreover, the song was also a year-end chart-topper. It reached no. 34 on the U.S. Billboard Country Songs while no. no. 63 on Canada RPM Country Tracks at the end of 1991.

“Brand New Man,” tells a story of a man that feels like he was born again. He feels that he saw the ray of light from the sky and he’s been baptized into a “brand new man“. All of these happened because of the woman he met that changed his life.

Two years after its release, the album hit a world record, especially for country music. It was the first country music album to be certified triple platinum, selling over 3 million copies worldwide.

Aside from their single that carries the same name with the album, “Brand New Man” also includes other hits of the duo. These are “My Next Broken Heart”, “Neon Moon“, and “Boot-Scootin’ Boogie.”

Try to sing along with the chorus of the song:

I saw the light
I’ve been baptized
By the fire in your touch
And the flame in your eyes
I’m born to love again
I’m a brand new man
