Cowboy Town is the tenth studio album by country music duo Brooks & Dunn, released in 2007 (see 2007 in country music) by Arista Nashville. Produced by the duo and Tony Brown, the album has accounted for four Top 20 country singles on the Billboard country singles charts: "Proud of the House We Built," "God Must Be Busy," "Put a Girl in It," and "Cowgirls Don't Cry." The album debuted at #13 on the Billboard albums chart, selling 68,900 copies in the first week of release. To date it has sold over 400,000 copies.
As with all of Brooks & Dunn's albums since the late 1990s, this album features songs co-written by Terry McBride, former lead singer of McBride & The Ride. Texas country singer Jerry Jeff Walker is featured on "The Ballad of Jerry Jeff Walker".
One of the McBride co-writes, "Proud of the House We Built," was issued in late 2007 as the lead-off single, and reached a peak of number 4 on the BillboardHot Country Songs charts. "God Must Be Busy" and "Put a Girl in It" were released as the album's second and third singles, respectively. "God Must Be Busy" peaked at number 11, while "Put a Girl in It" reached number 3. "Cowgirls Don't Cry," another McBride co-write, was released as the fourth and final single. After the duo performed the song with Reba McEntire (who was also the song's inspiration) at the Country Music Association awards in November 2008, a re-recording with McEntire's vocals was shipped to radio, and from November 2008 onward, the song was credited to Brooks & Dunn and Reba McEntire. It was the highest-peaking single from Cowboy Town, reaching a peak of number 2.
