Ronnie Dunn releasing solo album of inspiring songs

Country star Ronnie Dunn is going solo to pay homage to the artists who have inspired him in music on a new album.
Re-Dunn will feature the Brooks & Dunn star’s renditions of songs by Tom Petty, Lee Ann Womack, Van Morrison, as well as his take on Together Again, which has been recorded by Buck Owens, Ray Charles, Glen Campbell, Eric Clapton, and Hank Williams.
The album’s first two singles, Dunn’s versions of George Strait’s Amarillo by Morning and the Hollies’ Long Cool Woman (In a Black Dress), are already available to stream and download.
“This is a passion project for me,” he tells WENN. “If you put together a group of songs that define the soundtrack of my life, this is what it would look like.”
The new album comes just four months after Dunn’s music partner, Kix Brooks, released Reboot, an album of collaborations inspired by Brooks & Dunn songs. That project featured guest spots from Kacey Musgraves and Thomas Rhett, among others.
The duo will be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in October (19).
