"Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn are a phenomenon, with 27 million albums sold, 21 # 1 hits and countless major awards, they have had over a dozen years of incredible success, all so well deserved.
With Kix on guitar and Ronnie on lead vocals, they always put on a razzle-dazzle show, with superb musicianship and high energy performances.
Though this is a limited DVD in both quantity of videos as well as price, it gives a delightful snapshot of what these two artists can do.
1: "Red Dirt Road", a clever collage of country images in warm ochre toned colors, with the song from the "Red Dirt Road" CD from 2003.
2: "Ain't Nothin' but You", features an attractive fashion model, and has some interesting changes in the melody that appeals to me, and the song comes from the "Steers & Stripes" CD from 2001.
3: "Only in America", is a stage performance with film clips interspersed with it to illustrate the song, also from 2001's "Steers & Stripes".
4: "My Heart is Lost to You", yet another "Steers & Stripes" entry, with imaginative visuals, a gorgeous melodic line, cars in the desert and a duo of Spanish dancers. I love this video !
5: "My Maria", features some wonderful horsemanship from Kix, and candlelit Spanish-style rooms and architecture; a big hit from the "Borderline" CD released in 1996.
6: "Boot Scootin' Boogie" is an irresistible, spirited tune, with a great honky tonk piano part and a marvelous performance from Kix and Ronnie, and the song came from the "Brand New Man" CD released in 1991.
Total playing time approximately 23 minutes.
Two of these are already on the Greatest Hits Collection!!

"Coming from England it's particularly difficult to hear and see any country music, and almost impossible to hear new country music. This release from Brooks and Dunn is a God-send to be honest, although like a lot of recent country music DVD releases it is very short, although to be fair the price does match. The average music buyer in England will not have any idea who these two are, even though their albums do usually get a UK release there is no promotion whatsoever and it's usually not too long before they're in the bargin bucket.So as a very frustrated country music fan this sort of DVDs are very welcome. For this partiular release I was a little disappointed to see two videos included from their previous collection (My Maria and Boot Scootin' Boogie) but the new videos more or less made up for it. Three of the remaining four were completely new to me (the Red Dirt Road video I'd managed to see while on holiday in Nashville). The song Ain't Nothing 'Bout You is a personal favourite of mine and I was delighted to finally see the video.Overall I was very pleased with this release but coming from a country music starved country it's probably a better release me than other fans in the US where the wonderful CMT is available. For people in the UK I would recommend this release wholeheartly but for US fans I would probably tread carefully. UK fans need to be aware of the extra cost for shipping to the UK but I wouldn't let that put you off."
Brook and Dunn are the greatest Duo

"The videos are really great, I just wish all of their songs were made into videos.
I guess that won't happen now that they are no longer appearing together.
Last night on the CMA's they made an official announces. Great loss to the music industry.
My favorites are "God Must Be Busy", and "I Believe", neither of which are on this video."
