Country music’s most awarded duo Brooks & Dunn have been officially inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Reba McEntire presented the duo – Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn – their medallion during the 24th Medallion Ceremony at the CMA Theater on Sunday.
Singer, songwriter and comedic performer Ray Stevens, and country music executive Jerry Bradley were also inducted along with Brooks & Dunn.
“We’ve had a lot of people that probably had more faith in us than we had in ourselves at a lot of times,” Brooks said after being honored.
“Everybody down there with a medallion around their neck, I think you can probably identify with what I’m saying right now. But the best I can describe it – I thought about this a lot,” he added.
“I went to bed last night, I was tucked in by these little munchkin voices in my head, and I woke up to the same voices. They were singing, ‘Follow the yellow brick road, follow the yellow brick road,'” said Dunn.
