Brooks & Dunn release Cowgirls single with Reba
Thursday, November 13, 2008
– Ten years ago, Brooks & Dunn and Reba McEntire topped the charts together with their If You See Him/If You See Her
, and last night they debuted their version of Cowgirls Don't Cry
live at the 42nd Annual CMA Awards. The song is Brooks & Dunn's newest single from their "Cowboy Town." A version of the song will be released to country radio today with McEntire singing along.
Brooks & Dunn said McEntire inspired the song. "I had just spent time writing the song on Reba's Duets record, Does the Wind Still Blow in Oklahoma, and when he sat down with Cowgirls Don't Cry co-writer Terry McBride, Dunn said, "I was thinking of Reba when I wrote it and how she grew up" around cowboys and the rodeo lifestyle.
Brooks & Dunn and Reba recently filmed a music video for the song, hitting airwaves by month end.

This two-CD set contains 30 songs, but aside from 2 new songs, there's not much reason to buy this set. The quality certainly is there as 20 of the songs reached the top of the chart.
The new songs - both were released as singles - were Honky Tonk Stomp, featuring ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons, and Indian Summer. ...
If your idea of a cowboy is Cowboy Troy and the guys from Big & Rich, then sure, this new Brooks & Dunn album is named appropriately. For it's the city-bred hat crowd that the majority of these songs are aimed at or at least the women that married them. Their last couple of albums saw them gain some critical acclaim with songs like the stirring "Believe," but there's nothing that immediately memorable here. Instead, we get the fuzzy current events theology of, "God ...
