Dunn releases special CD
Monday, May 21, 2012
– Ronnie Dunn's newest solo CD debuts today through the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store exclusive music program. "Ronnie Dunn - Special Edition" is a collection of 12 songs that Dunn first released in 2011 and includes 2 previously unreleased bonus tracks.
Because Ronnie Dunn and Cracker Barrel support America's military personnel, a portion of the proceeds from sales will be donated to Wounded Warrior Project, helping injured soldiers. The CD is available for $11.99 exclusively at all Cracker Barrel locations and online.
"More than ever before, I feel as though this album gave me a chance to tell my own story through songs that mean a lot to me," said Dunn. "And it's particularly gratifying because, by working with Cracker Barrel, a portion of the CD retail sales will be donated to Wounded Warrior Project. To me, that truly makes this CD a special edition."
Dunn released his solo disc last year after the dissolution of Brooks & Dunn.
Songs on the new CD are:
1. I Love My Country (Previously Unreleased)
2. Singer In A Cowboy Band
3. I Don' Dance
4. Your Kind Of Love
5. How Far To Waco
7. Cost Of Livin'
8. Bleed Red
9. Last Love I'm Tryin'
10. Let The Cowboy Rock
11. I Can't Help Myself
12. I Just Get Lonely
13. Love Owes Me One
14. Keep On Lovin' You (Previously Unreleased)

When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: MerleFest: the new generation arrives

Concert Review: Yet again, Hurray for the Riff Raff feels no absence
Hurray for the Riff Raff could never be accused of living up to the adage "absence makes the heart grow fonder." In fact, this was their fourth appearance in the greater Boston area (that is if you count last year's Newport Folk Festival for being in the general areas) in 12 ½ months.
Like other shows, Hurray, which is really Alynda... »»»

A great deal has transpired in the 10 years between Rhiannon Giddens, Dom Flemons and Justin Robinson connecting at North Carolina's Black Banjo Gathering and the release of Giddens' brilliant debut solo album, "Tomorrow is My Turn." Giddens and Flemons formed the very successful Sankofa Springs. Robinson met and was mentored by black string band legend Joe Thompson, and ultimately, Giddens, Flemons and Robinson formed the bluegrass/folk/blues powerhouse, the Carolina Chocolate Drops.
A couple of years ago, while discussing various musical poet-heroes, singer-songwriter Hayes Carll mused that "in a perfect world, Ray Wylie Hubbard would be winning Grammys."
