    Is this because Dunn struck out too much?

    Must have been the rift over that apple brown peggy that Dunn ate.

    Dunno who did the writing but I'm sure Ronnie Dunn can find another guitar player.

    I would like to try and see them in 2010 before the part ways. I heard they put on a great show.

    Didn't help that they both got released by the Bucs after Gruden got fired.



    Oh wait.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I first read that as "Kearns and Dunn." I don't like country music, AT ALL. EVER. But they have a couple of songs that I would call guilty pleasures.

    I can't say that I am surprised. Ronnie Dunn sang lead and I think he wrote more of their songs than did Brooks.

    They put on a fabulous show. The last time I saw them it was a twinbill with them and Alan Jackson. One of the most fun shows I've ever been to..

    If those two kids can't make it in this crazy world, what hope is there for the rest of us?

    I think for radio hits, this is true. But from what I understand, when it comes to the performances, Kix had the most personality and stage presence.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    Re: Brooks and Dunn Split up

    I abandoned the country scene about ten years ago, when it became clear that Nashville's version of "country" had become VH1 boy groups and male and female pop singers. So I'm probably not that familiar with their recent stuff. While I really liked two or three of their songs, they really annoyed me when they released songs like this steaming pile of worn-out cliches:

    I'm still hurtin' from the last time
    You walked on this heart of mine
    I can't find much to believe in
    You let me down so many times
    Heaven knows how I love you
    But I'm tired of holding on
    You better kiss me
    'Cause your gonna miss me when I'm gone

    Not much chance we're gonna make it
    If I'm the only one who's trying
    You know I'm running out of reasons
    And we're running out of time
    Someday, girl, you're gonna wake up
    And wonder what went wrong
    You better kiss me
    'Cause your gonna miss me when I'm gone

    You're good at going through the motions
    All I hear are alibis
    Not I get this empty feeling
    When I look into your eyes
    I don't see a love light shining
    I don't know what's going on
    You better kiss me
    'Cause your gonna miss me when I'm gone
    Every line in that song has been written hundreds of times before, mostly by kids in garage bands trying their hand at songwriting for the first time. But, to B&D's credit, they took it and made a huge hit out of it.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    They had a good, long run.
