One thing I've discovered and you may also if you're covering one of these Brooks and Dunn cover songs is that if Ronnie Dunn is singing lead, be prepared for some high vocals. And if it's Kix Brooks, you'll likely be OK if you have a similar vocal range as me.

Thank for dropping by this Brooks and Dunn My Maria page and with a few free partial demos, chord sheets and some rhythm insights, I hope this page was useful.
