Brooks & Dunn have been recording incredible music as a duo since 1990. Before that, Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn were both solo recording artists. 

After they teamed up, they produced twenty Number One singles, eight platinum albums and received two Grammy Awards and 14 CMA Awards for Best Country Duo.

They mostly sing honky-tonk and rock-inspired country songs, but one of their most moving songs is the ballad,"Believe", which was co-written by Dunn and Craig Wiseman.

"Believe" is a song from Brooks & Dunn's 2005 album Hillbilly Deluxe. In 2006, it won the CMA Awards for Single of the Year and Music Video of the Year

The song is about a childhood encounter with a man named "Old Man Wrigley". They tell a story about how the child used to go to his house with "things". He learns that Old Man Wrigley's wife and son have passed away, and then asks the man how he deals with that loss. Old Man Wrigley says, "I'll see my wife and son in just a little while."

The boy grows up and eventually Old Man Wrigley passes away, but the boy wasn't sad. He knew that the man was with his family now.

Dunn takes lead vocals on this song and his delivery is so moving. You feel like you are actually there, seeing the story unfold in front of your eyes.

Watch the touching music video below.

Lyrics Below

Old man Wrigley lived in that white house
Down the street where i grew up
Momma used to send me over with things
We struck a friendship up
I spent a few long summers out on his old porch swing

Says he was in the war when in the navy
Lost his wife, lost his baby
Broke down and asked him one time
How ya keep from going crazy
He said I'll see my wife and son in just a little while
I asked him what he meant
He looked at me and smiled, said

I raise my hands, bow my head
I'm finding more and more truth in the words written in red
They tell me that there's more to life than just what i can see
Oh i believe

Few years later I was off at college
Talkin' to mom on the phone one night
Getting all caught up on the gossip
The ins and outs of the small town life
She said oh by the way son, old man Wrigley's died.

Later on that night, I laid there thinkin' back
Thought 'bout a couple long-lost summers
I didn't know whether to cry or laugh
If there was ever anybody deserved a ticket to the other side
It'd be that sweet old man who looked me in the eye, said

I raise my hands, bow my head
I'm finding more and more truth in the words written in red
They tell me that there's more to life than just what i can see

I can't quote the book
The chapter or the verse
You can't tell me it all ends
In a slow ride in a hearse
You know I'm more and more convinced
The longer that i live
Yeah, this can't be
No, this can't be
No, this can't be all there is

When I raise my hands, bow my head
I'm finding more and more truth in the words written in red
They tell me that there's more to life than just what i can see
I believe
Oh, I
I believe
I believe
I believe
I believe
I believe
