We're flashing back 16 years. 

To October 27, 2001 when Brooks & Dunn's "Only in America" hit #1 on the country charts.

Brooks & Dunn’s song “Only In America,” off their Steers & Stripes album was released in June of 2001, but after the tragic events that occurred on 9/11, the song with the opening lyrics "‘Suns comin’ up, over New York City," along with it’s message, seemed to give a life to the track that Ronnie Dunn & Kix Brooks could never have anticipated. 

The legendary duo were scheduled to perform at a show in Pennsylvania just days after 9/11, Ronnie remembers debating whether they should even perform that day.  Listen on the player below...
