The Grammy-winning duo of Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn have had 20 No. 1 hits, including songs like "Boot Scootin' Boogie" and "Brand New Man." Ray Stevens is known for singing zany hits like "The Streak," but also sentimental ones like "Everything Is Beautiful."

Bradley, the son of Owen Bradley, was the former head of RCA Records' Nashville office.

Brooks & Dunn's latest tour stop in Texas was at NRG Stadium in Houston last month.
