Brooks & Dunn launched their legendary country music career 30 years ago and to this day, the duo remains one of country music’s most celebrated acts. It’s clear why that’s the case after experiencing their latest tour. 

The superstar country duo, composed of Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn, brought their iconic catalog of hits to BB&T Pavilion in Camden, New Jersey on Thursday (Sept. 16) as part of their Reboot Tour.

Though they’ve made a mark on Sin City with their Las Vegas residency, the Reboot Tour marks the duo’s first nationwide tour in a decade. 

“So much for ‘we quit,’ huh?” Dunn previously shared. “That horse that we were afraid of riding into the ground apparently didn’t share our sentiment…he gotta fire in his belly raring to go another round or two. I like the ring of it…’Brooks & Dunn ride again!’”

“The memories of playing live are what have kept the fire burning for us,” Brooks added. “Performers who have had the kind of nights like we’ve had with our fans, can never really let that go. Live is where we’re most at home, and it’s gonna feel good to be back in the saddle, let’s rodeo!  We’ll see y’all out there on the trail.”

Brooks & Dunn proved why they are one of the most successful duos in history throughout their epic 24-song set that included all the hits, such as “Brand New Man,” “Neon Moon,” “Boot Scootin’ Boogie,” “My Maria,” “Red Dirt Road,” “Hard Workin’ Man,” “Play Something Country,” “Hillbilly Deluxe,” “Only In America” and more.

The current CMA Vocal Duo of the Year nominees also hosted a massive sing-a-long during a four-song medley, which included “My Heart Is Lost To You,” “It’s Getting Better All The Time,” “That’s Ain’t No Way To Go” and “That’s What She Gets For Loving Me.”

Brooks & Dunn had fans on their feet singing along throughout the show, which felt like a greatest hits album coming to life throughout the evening. 

Travis Tritt served as direct support on the tour, and he gave the perfect showcase that traditional country music is alive and well.

The award-winning country star and Georgia native performed a 12-song set that featured several of his chart-topping hits such as “Anymore” “Here’s A Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares)” and “It’s A Great Day To Be Alive.” Tritt also performed ‘Smoke In A Bar,” a track from his latest album, Set In Stone, which marked his first new music in over a decade. 

Rising star Elvie Shane opened the show, putting his unique sound on full display with his brief but impactful set as he performed tracks from his debut EP, Country Roads. Shane thoroughly impressed with performances of “Sundays In The South,” “My Mississippi” “Keep On Strummin’” and his chart-climbing hit “My Boy.”
