Friday, July 17, 2015
– Ronnie Dunn premiered his new single on a new label today on America's Morning Show today.
"Ain't No Trucks in Texas," produced by Rascal Flatts' Jay DeMarcus,is out on the NashIcon label. The song will be on his label debut, although no date has been set for the release.
"I haven't been this excited about new music in a while," said Dunn. "And I am definitely looking forward to performing it live for fans."
Dunn, one half of Brooks & Dunn, started a residency in Las Vegas with Kix Brooks and Reba McEntire, "Reba, Brooks & Dunn: Together in Vegas," which will continue in December.
"We just finished our first nine shows in Vegas," said Dunn. "Honestly, it's the most fun I've ever had and I've played some some cliff hangers over the years. The production, the sound, the crowds are all beyond anything I had imagined, and I'm looking forward to the future dates."
