If Brooks & Dunn are to be believed (and their many multiplatinum albums suggest
they are), folks in Cowboy Town don't do much besides lovin', drinkin',
and salutin' the grand ol' flag. Luckily, the duo are one of country's
hardest-rocking acts, so even if the themes on their 11th studio CD are
a bit predictable, their muscular riffs and handsome vocal harmonies
give the material a boot-scooting vibrancy belying their elder-statesmen
status. That ''Dirt, mud, and dust, Bibles and beer'' from ''Cowboy Town''?
It may be a recipe, but it's one for success. B+
