Brooks & Dunn Team With Luke Combs & Kane Brown on Rebooted Versions of “Brand New Man” & “Believe” [Listen]

Brooks & Dunn are back in the saddle with a new Reboot album that features an all-star cast of artists performing duets with country’s greatest duo.

Artists taking part in the project include Kacey Musgraves, Kane Brown, Thomas Rhett, Brett Young, Lanco, Ashley McBryde, Midland, Luke Combs, Brothers Osborne, Cody Johnson, Jon Pardi and Tyler Booth.

While the full track listing hasn’t been released yet, a couple of songs have been made public, including Luke Combs singing “Brand New Man” and Kane Brown singing “Believe.”

“Brand New Man,” which was penned by Kix Brooks, Ronnie Dunn and Don Cook, was the duo’s first No. 1 single in 1991.

“Brooks & Dunn’s music absolutely had a tremendous impact on me,” said Luke Combs. “To me, they invented that foot stomping, driving sound. And it’s so cool that this has turned into such an awesome album, with artists that actually grew up listening to Brooks & Dunn. Their music was so influential to us that having the chance to come in and bounce ideas off the guys and sing with them in the studio was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

“Believe,” which was penned by Ronnie Dunn and Craig Wiseman, won the CMA Award for Single, Song and Video of the Year in 2006.

“I’ve never really sung in the studio with someone else, especially not with someone whose voice is as good as Ronnie’s,” said Kane Brown. “For him to be looking at me on the other side of the glass, and both of us singing, it was just awesome. It felt like we just got comfortable around each other, so we were really able to kill it.”

Reboot will be released on April 5.
