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'

12. I Just Get Lonely
13. Love Owes Me One
14. Keep On Lovin' You (Previously Unreleased)

Concert Review: Kristofferson gives insight, but no easy answers
