“Neon Moon” was originally released on February 24, 1992.  The song served as the third single from their debut album, Brand New Man, and went on to become an iconic country music hit.

“Neon Moon” was written by Ronnie Dunn and became the duo’s third single in a row to hit No. 1 on the country charts. The track was also the first single Brooks & Dunn released without an accompanying music video. 

Now, nearly 30 years later, “Neon Moon” is seeing a resurgence like no other.
