Brooks & Dunn, Brothers Osborne Rock 2019 CMA Awards With ‘Hard Workin’ Man’
Brooks & Dunn lit it up onstage at the 2019 CMA Awards on Wednesday night (Nov 13). The Country Music Hall of Famers brought the house down at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena with an incendiary performance of their classic hit "Hard Workin' Man," joined by Brothers Osborne.
On a stage bathed in red and white flashing lights, the legendary duo and the soon to be legendary duo looked poised to have a rip-roaring time via this performance. And they did just that as they traded lyrical runs and guitar riffs throughout their entire performance.

While the performance was a good time, so was watching the artists in the audience rock along with Brooks & Dunn and Brothers Osborne. Everyone from Miranda Lambert to Dustin Lynch couldn't stop smiling as the camera panned to catch their reactions to the fiery performance.
Ronnie Dunn wrote "Hard Workin' Man," which was the title song and lead single from Brooks & Dunn's sophomore album in 1993. It gave the duo a No. 4 hit on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart, and they covered the song when they re-recorded some of their biggest career hits for their most recent album, Reboot, joined by some of the biggest younger country stars. Brothers Osborne joined them for a new rendition of "Hard Workin' Man" that was featured on the project alongside offerings from Kane Brown, Luke Combs, Brett Young, Jon Pardi, Kacey Musgraves and more.
Brooks & Dunn were also nominated for Musical Event of the Year at the 2019 CMA Awards for "Brand New Man," another track from Reboot that they re-recorded with Luke Combs, while Brothers Osborne scored a nod in that same category for "All My Favorite People," their collaboration with Maren Morris.
