Good for Kix!! Its about time :) Every song he sang on Brooks & Dunn albums sounded like good Country, while every song that Ronnie sang made me think if nails on a blackboard!! I know alot of folks liked Ronnie Dunns voice, I just never got it! It is in my mind, The worst voice in Country History!
