It’s no doubt that a lot of us have questioned why bad things happen to good people. And, perhaps some of us have prayed before and felt like nobody was listening.

Sometimes, when our prayers go unanswered and we feel helpless, we place the blame on others and also on God.

And, we do that because we’re all human. And, let’s face it. None of us are perfect.

So, when country super duo Brooks & Dunn released their single “God Must Be Busy” in 2007 — three years before they embarked on solo treks — it wasn’t very hard to relate to the song’s lyrics. That year, the pair performed the song at the 41st annual CMA Awards.

“Grey’s Anatomy” star Kate Walsh announced Brooks & Dunn saying, “They are two of country’s finest and most enduring artists… Last year they made us believe and this year they’re going to make us think.””

And, indeed they did just that. As you can see in this video, Ronnie Dunn takes the lead, while Kix Brooks adds beautiful harmony to the ballad. They croon about issues happening in the Middle East and natural disaster’s sweeping the nation. And, then they end on the all too common story of a man praying for a solution to a failed relationship.

And, it’s just a reminder to us all that things happen that we have absolutely no control over.

Recently, the duo collaborated on a new song that Ronnie released called “Damn Drunk” — a name that’s clearly different to the “God Must Be Busy” title. On Nov. 30, Brooks & Dunn will also resume their run of shows with Reba McEntire at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
