Brooks & Dunn will be joined by some very special guests on their 'Cowboy Town' Tour this summer. ZZ Top will hit the road with the country duo in August and September. Kix Brooks explains that he and partner Ronnie Dunn were looking to add a little more rock 'n' roll to their show.

"We learned a really valuable lesson opening for the Rolling Stones -- that those kind of rock fans are not that different than our fans at all," Brooks explains. "And in this day in time, you talk to most country artists and their influences are gonna include some big time rock bands . . . I think our fans are just like we are. It's hard to say you don't dig ZZ Top!"

Brooks & Dunn and ZZ Top first met taping an episode of CMT's 'Crossroads' show (pictured above). For a full list of 'Cowboy Town' Tour dates, click here.
