Brooks and Dunn are finally back with their upcoming album. Next month, we’ll be hearing the duo’s new album Reboot. After their split in 2009, they announced that they have a new project where they will collaborate with young country artists. In their new album, they’ll be featuring their old classic hits and sing duets with other country singers, giving it a new look onto their songs.
To satisfy your excitement here’s one song that’ll make you hit the replay button again and again.
Brooks and Dunn’s “Ain’t Nothing ’bout You” Remake
The duo teamed up with Brett Young, a pop-country singer who is best known for his single “In Case You Didn’t Know.” They covered Brooks and Dunn’s “Ain’t Nothing ’bout You” in a slower and soulful way. It perfectly fits Young’s way or style in country music that he is known for.
What do you think of the new version of “Ain’t Nothing ’bout You?”
We think that both versions are amazing. They are released with their own unique style. Also, you can see the difference between the music of the past and the present. Despite making the song a slower and more sultry version, it still gives us a little touch of the original cover.
“Ain’t Nothing ’bout You” was the duo’s fifteenth number one song on the country chart. It was a song penned by Tom Shapiro and Rivers Rutherford in 2001. The duo made the song part of their album Steers & Stripes, an album that reached the top of the country albums chart. “Ain’t Nothing ’bout You” was also nominated during the 2001 CMA Award show. The category they were nominated in was Single of the Year but, they lost to “I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow” by The Soggy Bottom Boys.
Brett Young Working with the Legends
Working with such legends in country music is overwhelming. But, the duo didn’t do anything to intimidate Young. Instead, they made him feel comfortable the moment he steppped into the studio.
“I was so honored to get asked to be on this project with Brooks & Dunn, the lineup on this record is through-the-roof talent and the guys are country music icons,” added Brett. “As soon as I got into the studio Ronnie and Kix made me feel so comfortable, which I was so thankful for, and I can’t wait for everyone to hear what we came up with together.”
