NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ Country music performers Brooks & Dunn are one of the few musical acts that continued playing tour dates despite the terrorist attacks.

Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn said that when they get on stage they explain to their crowds their reasons for going on with the show.

``We have concluded that a coward’s act of terrorism will not be allowed to suppress our coveted way of life. ... In an effort to proclaim our allegiance to the undefeated American spirit, we stand before you tonight.″

Then they launch into their hit ``Only in America.″

Dunn told The Tennessean that when they walked off the stage one night, ``all I saw was a sea of American flags. I’ve never seen a mass of emotion that powerful.″
