Dunn tattoos "Heart"
Monday, August 22, 2016
– Ronnie Dunn will release his Big Machine Label Group debut, "Tattooed Heart," on Oct. 21.
"Damn Drunk," with Kix Brooks helping out, is the current single. The 12 tracks were recorded in Nashville with Rascal Flatts' Jay Demarcus serving as producer on 11 of them, and Reba McEntire contributing to "Still Feels Like Mexico" with Tommy Lee James producing.
"I had a lot of fun making this album. Jay and I really clicked in the studio and we were both really proud of the final product," said Dunn. "I branched out of my comfort zone while writing and listening to a ton of music. At the suggestion of my daughter, I even recorded an Ariana Grande song. Ironically, it became the title of the album."

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).

Concert Review: These Eagles keep songs alive and well
The newly reconfigured Eagles lineup, which now includes Vince Gill and Deacon Frey in place of the late Glenn Frey, hasn't changed its set much since this modified grouping's debut at Dodger Stadium in 2017.

Concert Review: Lovett could not have scripted it any better
Cerritos is a fair distance from Hollywood, but Lyle Lovett, who has accumulated a long list of acting credits, sometimes seemed like he was giving a company town performance this night.
