Kane Brown, Brooks & Dunn ‘Reboot’ 2005’s ‘Believe’ [LISTEN]
Kane Brown is helping Brooks & Dunn "reboot" one of their biggest songs for a new duets project. Readers can press play above to hear the rising star and the megastar country duo's new take on "Believe."
A single from Brooks & Dunn's 2005 album Hillbilly Deluxe, "Believe" was co-written by Ronnie Dunn and Craig Wiseman. A Top 10 country chart hit, the song was awarded Single of the Year, Song of the Year and Music Video of the Year at the 2006 CMA Awards.
“I’ve never really sung in the studio with someone else, especially not with someone whose voice is as good as Ronnie’s. For him to be looking at me on the other side of the glass, and both of us singing, it was just awesome," Brown reflects in a press release. "It felt like we just got comfortable around each other, so we were really able to kill it.”

Brooks & Dunn's new version of "Believe" featuring Brown is part of Reboot, a forthcoming new album that will feature the iconic duo performing some of their biggest hits with the genre's stars of today. Kacey Musgraves, Thomas Rhett, Brett Young, Lanco, Ashley McBryde, Midland, Luke Combs, Brothers Osborne, Cody Johnson, Jon Pardi and Tyler Booth are all part of the record. On Friday (Feb. 8), Combs' version of "Brand New Man" with Kix Brooks and Dunn was also released.
A release date for and further details about Reboot have yet to be revealed. The project will be Brooks & Dunn's first since 2007's Cowboy Town. The duo famously announced in 2009 that they were splitting up, after more than 20 years together; their Last Rodeo Tour concluded on Sept. 3, 2010, at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena.
After Brooks & Dunn's split, both men embarked on solo careers. The duo reunited in 2015 for a still-running Las Vegas residency, along with their good friend Reba McEntire.
