Out in the country, back roads and one horse towns
We saw fiddles, play our guitars loud
We talk the talk, and walk the walk
And do the Honky Tonk Stomp
One of the last singles before the duo’s disbandment in 2010, “Honky Tonk Stomp” gives you an up-tempo beat that will make you dance and sing along. Recorded by Brooks & Dunn, the song was co-written by Ronnie Dunn along with Terry McBride and Bobby Pinson. It was released on August 10, 2009.
