Way back in 2010, Brooks & Dunn announced that they were on their farewell tour and as a result a special tribute concert was scheduled immediately to commemorate their vast accomplishments and triumphs in music. 

ACM Presents: Brooks & Dunn - "The Last Rodeo" was a gathering of country music's most memorable singers sharing their best memories of the hit duo and giving unforgettable performances of their hits!

During one of the near-final performances of the night, Carrie Underwood took to the stage and spoke very highly about how motivational both Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn had been to her and the rest of country music. 

"I have actually made up dances to some of their songs, none of which I'll be demonstrating right now - and you're welcome...!" She joked. 

"You guys have been with us for so long, and you have helped shape so many of us into artists, and you have made so many people fall in love with country music."

"The song that I'm gonna do now is one that I've been singing since I was eight years old..." 

Underwood then cues the music and begins one of the most melodic and crisp covers of the duo's No. 1 single "Neon Moon" that has ever been sung. 

Brooks & Dunn originally were solo singer/songwriters until they were corralled into a team by Tim DuBois in 1990. According to Brad Paisley (who told the story at the concert) DuBois came up with the idea to put them together and told them to go write a song and see what happens. Brooks said that they came up with their songs "Brand New Man" and "My Next Broken Heart" from that meeting.

Watch the video below for Carrie Underwoods amazing tribute to two of county music's finest legends! 

LYRICS BELOW

When the sun goes down
On my side of town
That lonesome feeling
Comes to my door
The whole world turns blue

There's a rundown bar
Cross the railroad tracks
I've got a table for two
Way in the back
Where I sit alone
And think of losing you

I spend most every night
Beneath the light
Of this neon moon

Now if you lose your one and only
There's always room here for
The lonely
To watch your broken dreams
Dance in and out of the beams
Of a neon moon

I think of two young lovers
Running wild and free
I close my eyes
And sometimes see
You in the shadows
Of this smoke-filled room

No telling how many tears
I've sat here and cried
Or how many lies
That I've lied
Telling my poor heart
She'll come back someday

Oh, but I'll be alright
As long as there's light
From a neon moon

Oh, if you lose your one and only
There's always room here for
The lonely
To watch your broken dreams
Dance in and out of the beams
Of a neon moon

The jukebox plays on
Drink by drink
And the words of every sad song
Seem to say what I think
And this hurt inside of me
Ain't never gonna end

Oh, but I'll be alright
As long as there's light
From a neon moon

Oh, if you lose your one and only
There's always room here for
The lonely
To watch your broken dreams
Dance in and out of the beams
Of a neon moon

Watch your broken dreams
Dance in and out of the beams
Of a neon moon

Oh, watch your broken dreams
Dance in and out of the beams
Of a neon moon
