The Best Brooks & Dunn Music Videos – Our Top Five [VIDEO]

Dunn has a new album out and a hit single with 'Bleed Red,' and he'll be touring the nation solo for the next few months. You can sign up on our Facebook page for your chance to win two tickets and backstage passes to Dunn's July 21st show in Yakima, WA.

The puppy was born eight weeks ago on April 3rd in Spokane, WA, and made his way to Texas last week to meet his new parents. He's a chunky yellow lab who's very smart, and loves to play with squeaky toys. We named him Murphy, or Murph for short, after a famous pub in downtown Honolulu where we met in college.
