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

Trampled By Turtles is an indie folk group, an alt.-country band or a bluegrass act - depending on how you choose to look at them. Perhaps it's best to view the outfit as the ultimate combo platter consisting of just about everything that's good about American music. They play wonderfully, yet they also write intelligent songs that draw everyone from Townes Van Zandt to Nirvana to Ralph Stanley. It's all good, and some (or all) of these influences can be spotted in most of Trampled By Turtles' enjoyable sounds.... »»»
If you move in alt.-country/Americana circles, you simply cannot get away from the name Parker Millsap. He's certainly one of the biggest buzz artists of 2014. Better still, his self-titled album lives up to all the hype. He's a smart songwriter and a passionate singer and is essential listening for anybody looking for high quality contemporary music. Millsap also creates music appealing to a wide variety of musical tastes. You can make a case that he's a country guy, but you can also hear a lot of blues and folk. And if you attempt to put a label on him, he'll quickly tear it right off.... »»»
