Hillbilly Deluxe is the eleventh studio album by country music duo Brooks & Dunn, released in 2005 on Arista Nashville. Certified platinum in the United States by the RIAA, the album produced four singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts between 2005 and 2007: the Number One hit "Play Something Country", "Believe" (#8), "Building Bridges" (#4) and the title track, a #16. The duo produced the majority of the album with Tony Brown.



Hillbilly Deluxe was led off by the single "Play Something Country". This song was co-written by Ronnie Dunn, one-half of Brooks & Dunn, along with former McBride & the Ride frontman Terry McBride, who plays bass in Brooks & Dunn's road band and co-writes several of their songs. "Play Something Country" was the duo's twentieth and final Number One hit on the Billboard country singles charts. After this song came the ballad "Believe", which peaked at #8 on the same chart, and was co-written by Dunn and Craig Wiseman. The #4 "Building Bridges", featuring guest vocals from Vince Gill and Sheryl Crow, was the third single release, and finishing off the single releases was the title track (another Craig Wiseman co-write) at #16.


Ronnie Dunn and Kix Brooks produced the majority of the album with Tony Brown, except for "My Heart's Not a Hotel", which Brooks, Brown and Dunn produced with Mark Wright. Brooks and Tom Shapiro co-produced the demo for "One More Roll of the Dice" (which they also co-wrote), while the demos for "Her West Was Wilder" and "She Likes to Get Out of Town" were produced by Brooks and Bob DiPiero, who also co-wrote those tracks with Brooks.
