    Brooks & Dunn won the 1996 Country Music Association Award for Entertainer Of The Year. They also won the C.M.A. award for Vocal Duo Of The Year.
    "My Maria" won a 1997 Grammy Award for Best Country Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal. BORDERLINE was nominated for a 1997 Grammy for Best Country Album.
    The superstar duo's fourth album, BORDERLINE, was a pop sensation, not only earning Brooks & Dunn the CMA's Entertainer Of The Year award, but also spending a good deal of 1996 among Billboard's top 10 pop albums. Starting off strong with the hit "My Maria," BORDERLINE quickly changes moods, sliding into mid-tempo heartbreak for the next two tracks, "A Man This Lonely" and "Why Would I Say Goodbye." But it's hard to keep these boys down for long. They bounce back in the hard-driving, hard-drinking honky-tonk stomper "Redneck Rhythm & Blues."
    What ultimately survives on the BORDERLINE is the spirit of hopefulness that only true love can bring. It's the kind of love that is not bound by borders or distance. "My love will follow you/Down every highway of your soul," Brooks & Dunn sing in the Buddy and Julie Miller composition "My Love Will Follow You." This kind of love infuses not only the relationships they sing about, but the songs they sing, and helps makes both Brooks & Dunn and BORDERLINE such big winners.

  • Critic Reviews
    Q (7/96, p.107) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...they make music that...contains a huge amount of songwriting ability, musical guts and a general verve....they kick ass in the pretend-rowdy, very loud acoustic guitar way of the best modern country..."
    Mojo (Publisher) (6/96, p.123) - "...[BORDERLINE] has the edge in terms of songs, if only because such titles as 'More Than A Margarita' and 'Tequila Town' prove endearing to those raised on the sounds of Marty Robbins and cantina cantatas..."
