Kik Brooks & Ronnie Dunn are truly one of my favorite Country acts, as they
are rated very highly in my book. Their sound is true Country, compared to
many Country acts that have a more pop sound than traditional country. Brooks
& Dunn's 4th album of their career, Borderline, is their debut review
to appear on WSVNRadio. They would have 9 #1 Country tunes before this release,
and they would add 2 more from Borderline. Of course, more albums were
released afterwards, and more #1 Country hits followed as well.
The first #1 would be a remake of a 1970s hit by B.W. Stevenson, "My
Maria," a song very popular by B&D, and it's hard to determine this song
being better than the original, where both versions are just as exceptional.
"A Man This Lonely" is a great mellow ballad, as it became B&D's second
#1 Country song from this release. "Why Would I Say Goodbye" is another
medium tempo'd song, very enjoyable as "A Man This Lonely." "Mama
Don't Get Dressed Up For Nothing" is a great honky tonk'er, where the
beautiful country ballad returns with "I Am That Man."
A happy sounding song is "More Than A Margarita," where you could
easily imagine this a Jimmy Buffett song, or even Buffett singing along.
The rockin'/honky tonkin' "Redneck Rhythm And Blues" has the great sound
as another popular B&D hit, "Little Miss Honky Tonk."
A pattern of soft ballad of one song, honky tonk the other, the nice ballad
"My Love Will Follow You" is a very enjoyable tune, the hoppin' "One
Heartache At A Time" gets the feet tapping, and "Tequila Town" is
a very pleasant and relaxing country ballad. The fast-driving "White Line
Casanova" has some exceptional guitar works, and could be a challenge for
the country line dancers.
Any Brooks & Dunn album cannot go wrong. Borderline is Country at
it's best, and FINALLY, WSVNRadio is proud to include Brooks & Dunn as part of
their album review archives. Brooks & Dunn continued releasing more albums
after 1996, and each release, past and present has always been entertaining,
and defines Country music at it's finest.
