No, you aren't experiencing the Mandela Effect unfolding — there is a different variation of Brooks and Dunn on the radio right now.

Ronnie Dunn wrote a song called "Rodeo Man," which Garth Brooks heard and wanted to record, with his pal Dunn as a featured artist.

Taste of Country Nights had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sit down in the recording studio with Brooks and Dunn — Garth, that is.

Brooks is on the cusp of opening his Friends in Low Places Bar in Nashville later this month, and I found it interesting that Brooks & Dunn — the real '90s duo — don't already have their own bar and venue.

So, I asked Dunn if anyone had ever approached them about opening a Brooks & Dunn-themed bar or honky-tonk.

"Yeah, yeah," he confirms. "We're just afraid to be in the bar business. We don't have as much money as Garth. (Garth laughs). He can sneak around and take a risk that we can't."

Brooks, on the other hand, is all for it, chiming in: "A Brooks & Dunn bar, we need it. Just do a license deal where it doesn't cost you any money."

"OK, sounds like a good business to be in. You front the money," Dunn jokes.

Brooks' soon-to-open Friends in Low Places venue has multiple levels to part on once you're inside, so I suggested that the "Shameless" star might give up a floor to his friends Brooks & Dunn.

To that, he says, "Hell no!"

"There's not a building in town tall enough to take care of his business," Dunn adds.

Brooks jokes that the sixth floor of his new establishment could be the Brooks and Dunn floor, which the two country music icons got a big chuckle over.

"Rodeo Man" is streaming now on all platforms now, as well as playing nightly on Taste of Country Nights. Brooks' Friends in Low Places bar officially opens on the day after Thanksgiving with an epic live performance.

Evan Paul is the host of Taste of Country Nights, a syndicated radio show heard on more than 120 country radio stations nationwide, every night from 7PM to midnight. He plays the best new country music and interviews today's top stars, like Luke Combs, Miranda Lambert, Dan + Shay, Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, Chris Stapleton, Lady A, Morgan Wallen, + more!

Ronnie Dunn lived in true Southern style in his manor home in Nashville. Dunn's 6-bedroom, 7-bathroom, 10,898-square-foot mansion in a high-dollar part of Music City featured a horse barn, a riding ring and the most top-flight amenities, all situated on 16 gated, very private acres.

See Inside Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood's Malibu Beach House:

Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood's former beachside house in Malibu offered a gorgeous vacation paradise for the country music power couple to relax.

Brooks and Yearwood bought their 4-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom, 4,200-square-foot house in Malibu for slightly less than $5 million in June of 2008. The house itself is fairly modest, but very well-appointed, featuring an open floor plan.

The living room boasts a corner fireplace and multiple sets of French doors that open to the backyard. The kitchen includes marble countertops, while skylights offer plenty of natural California sunlight. The den features floor-to-ceiling bookshelves on either side of a fireplace of white brick.

The backyard is spectacular, featuring a loggia, an outdoor fireplace, a half-court basketball court and elaborate landscaping. The house provides direct access to the world-famous Malibu beach via a set of steps.

The couple sold the house in Malibu in late 2016 for $7 million.
