Brooks & Dunn ended a 20-year career together last night (Sept. 2) with a sold-out show at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.

There was lots of speculation that the two would bring up tons of country star friends for the show, which doubled as a fundraiser for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

But only Reba McEntire hit the stage, to sing a few lines in “Cowgirls Don’t Cry,”.

Ronnie Dunn and Kix Brooks closed the show the way they opened their career as a duo, with 1991 debut single “Brand New Man.”

Kix said early on: "This isn’t a funeral. We did show up to party." The party included "Neon Moon," "My Maria," "Red Dirt Road" and "Boot Scootin' Boogie."

But later, Kix did offer a heartfelt nod to fans.

“To the people who paid our rent for the last 20 years, all I can say is, 'Thanks.'"
