Brooks & Dunn Done

My favorite country duo, Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn, announced this week that after The Last Rodeo tour they're calling it quits.  20 years.  41 Top Ten hits.  Thanks for a rowdy and wonderful playlist, guys!

When I was writing THE SWEETHEART OF PROSPER COUNTY, I had a playlist of songs that I kept on blast in my car.  Listening to those songs put me in the zone -- the setting, the energy, the voice of my story.  It was a Brooks & Dunn song in particular that reminded me of my roots, the girl I was and am.  That song more than anything helped me find my rural writing voice and, quite frankly, bolstered my confidence to just turn the voice loose and let it fly.  Kix and Ronnie wrote "Red Dirt Road" together, so I think it fitting that I share this with you.
