Has it really been 17 years? Hard to believe, but it was May 18th, 1996 when Brooks & Dunn hit #1 with a song that B.W. Stevenson had on the pop charts in 1973. Billboard named it the country song of the year in 1996, and it won the duo its second Grammy Award for Best Country Performance by a Vocal Group or Duo. 'My Maria' was the last song Brooks & Dunn performed as a duo on the 2010 ACM Awards.
