Ronnie Dunn Releasing ‘Re-Dunn’ Solo Album With George Strait, Tom Petty Covers
Ronnie Dunn is paying homage to the wide range of artists who inspire him on a comprehensive solo album, Re-Dunn.
As one half of beloved country duo Brooks & Dunn, Dunn's project will arrive in January 2020, featuring a myriad of country and rock cover songs that have impacted his life and career.
A list of 24 tracks reveals covers of hits by George Strait, Tom Petty, Lee Ann Womack, Van Morrison and more, with Dunn lending his voice to Strait's signature "Cowboy Rides Away," Petty's iconic "I Won't Back Down," "Ashes by Now," the Rodney Crowell-penned track that Womack turned into a hit in 2000, and Morrision's timeless "Brown Eyed Girl." Fans will also get to hear Dunn's interpretation of "Together Again," made famous by Buck Owens in 1964 but has also been covered by the likes of Ray Charles and Glen Campbell, along with cuts by Eric Clapton and Hank Williams.
Why Did Brooks & Dunn Break Up, Anyway?
Dunn is set to release a pair of singles, one country song and one rock song, every four weeks prior to the album's unveiling. The album's first two singles, a cover of Strait's "Amarillo by Morning" and "Long Cool Woman (In a Black Dress)," a 1972 chart-topper by British group the Hollies, are available now.
“This is a passion project for me. If you put together a group of songs that define the soundtrack of my life, this is what it would look like,” Dunn says in a press release.
In April, the singer and his duo partner Kix Brooks released a collaborative album Reboot, which had them reimagining several of their biggest hits alongside Kacey Musgraves, Luke Combs, Thomas Rhett and more. The twosome will be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in October 2019.
