Oklahoma's Brooks & Dunn announces split

Shaking harder than the 3.4 earthquake in Pontotoc County last week was the country music industry's reaction to the breakup of Brooks & Dunn. On Aug. 10, the Grammy winning duo " comprised of Kix Brooks and former Tulsan Ronnie Dunn " announced it will split in 2010, after 20 years of making hits and scooting boots. Thanks for the advance warning! All this time, CFN thought 2012 was the end (at least according to the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar date).

To find out what America thought of the news, CFN went straight to its pulse: Twitter, of course. (Warning: At least one of these tweets practically requires a decoder ring.)
