  • Brooks & Dunn: Boot-scootin' boogiers

After 20 years together, country duo Brooks & Dunn are calling it quits after one last tour. And there are only a few dates left: The final show is scheduled in Nashville next week. Their “Last Rodeo” pretty much started a year ago, when Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn released the two-disc Number 1s … and Then Some, a career-spanning compilation that reveals just how solid a recording act they have become over two decades. Their modern-day honky tonk is way more durable than their big hats and occasional sentimentality let on. Be sure to get to the concert early: Opener Merle Haggard isn’t going to be around forever either. The 73-year-old country-music legend released his most consistent albums in years in April. He’ll probably play some songs from I Am What I Am during his set, but he has 45 years’ worth of hits to choose from. There’s no doubt when it comes to Haggard’s honky tonk. It’s the real thing. Brooks & Dunn, with Merle Haggard, play Blossom Music Center at 7:30 p.m. Tickets: $20-$69.50. —Michael Gallucci
