So you think that just because we are in Vegas that we don’t know how to get down country style? Well, let us tell you that by the looks of the packed Colosseum on the opening night of “Reba, Brooks and Dunn: Together in Vegas,” you can bet that our country folk are anything but lacking.
Kicking off their limited time engagement at Caesars Palace last week, these three country mega-stars are already off to a strong start in a very well-received Vegas run.
Managing to fit dozens of beloved fan favorites into their high energy, 90-minute concert, the stars took turns singing the hits that put their names on the musical map in addition to singing a selection of songs together.
Thirty hits were performed including “Play Something Country,” “Little Miss Honky Tonk,” “Cowgirls Don’t Cry” and “America” that they belted out as a trio and then spotlights on some of their individual hits including: “Fancy,” “Turn on the Radio,” “The Night the Lights Went out in Georgia” (Reba) and “Boot Scootin’ Boogie,” “Neon Moon,” “My Maria” and “How Long Gone” (Brooks & Dunn).
Having topped the country charts with their individual hits, Reba and Brooks & Dunn have collectively celebrated more than 45 No. 1 hits, garnering the artists multiple multi-platinum records and an astounding following.
With smash songs including “My Maria,” “Red Dirt Road” and “Ain’t Nothing ‘Bout You,” country duo Brooks and Dunn were quick to gain widespread accolades and immediately following the beginning of their career more than 25 years ago. Reba burst onto the music scene as a country pop artist in 1975 and has hits including, “Love Needs a Holiday,” “How Blue” and “Fancy.”
Having won 15 American Music Awards, 13 Academy of Country Music Awards, nine People’s Choice Awards, seven Country Music Association Awards, two Grammy Awards and an ACM Career Achievement Honor, Reba was named the No. 1 female country touring artist with more than nine million tickets sold. In addition to her music career, the artist is also an actress, appearing in a variety of television productions including the six-season eponymous sitcom “Reba.”
And while Brooks & Dunn do not have a sitcom of their own (although we are sure that would be very entertaining) they too boast a well-adorned trophy case. With more than 30 million albums sold, the country duo has scooped up two Grammy awards, 20 Country Music Association awards and 27 Academy of Country Music awards, making them the most-awarded act in ACM history.
With both Reba and Brooks & Dunn recognized as best-selling artists of all time, this joint concert is of the history-making variety. Having toured the nation together in their earlier years, the three country vocal powerhouses not only know how to put on a damn good show, but in true Vegas fashion, they have transformed The Colosseum into an epic, superstar-studded, honky-tonk that has resulted in an all-around awesome concert experience.
