Self-Titled 12-Song Album Includes Current Hit, “Bleed Red”;
Dunn to Make Televised Debut of “Bleed Red” on the ACM Awards
Nashville, TN – March 21, 2011 – His voice has helped define the soundtrack of country music for two decades, and now Ronnie Dunn is poised to continue that legacy with the release of his self-titled solo debut album, coming June 7. A 12-track collection, Ronnie Dunn captures the multi-award-winning singer/songwriter’s most complete musical vision, produced solely by Dunn, with nine songs that he wrote or co-wrote.
It’s the album he’s always wanted to make, and Ronnie Dunn delivers in a big way, from the stirring poignancy of the smash first single, “Bleed Red,” to the energized cantina-country of the Dunn/Terry McBride co-write, “How Far to Waco,” the all-too-real everyman’s portrait of “Cost of Livin’,” and the devastating, heart-on-the-line balladry of the Dunn-penned “Last Love I’m Tryin’.”
The collection kicks-off with the party-time opener, “Singer in a Cowboy Band” (penned by Dunn and Craig Wiseman), and closes with another Dunn co-write, the soulful “Love Owes Me One.”
“Bleed Red,” the first hit from the new album, is available now as a digital single and is currently Top 15 and climbing on the country airplay charts. Fans will have the chance to see Dunn deliver his first televised performance of “Bleed Red” on The 46th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, April 3, on CBS.
While in Las Vegas for the ACM Awards, Dunn will also headline the free, open-to-the-public concert on Saturday, April 2, as part of ACM Weekend on Fremont Street Experience.
