Brooks & Dunn, one of my favorite country bands, is calling it quits after years of great music.
Here’s a link to one of my favorite songs of theirs, Red Dirt Road. There was this one road trip I took out to western Kansas when I was in high school. I was driving solo and had only one CD with me — a mix disc with that song as the first track. I just played that disc over and over because all the radio stations seemed to be nothing but crap.
Whenever I hear that song, though, I feel like I’m back on that long stretch of U.S. Highway 50, getting that first big dose of freedom.
