– Ronnie Dunn has inked a record deal with Nash Icon, a label formed by Big Machine Label Group and Cumulus Media.
Dunn had been on Arista for his first solo disc since the break-up of Brooks & Dunn and also released music on his own Little Will-E Records.
In a Facebook posting on Nov. 27, Dunn wrote, "Got my new company cap yesterday.....NASHIcon / NASHChetta / Big Machine. Thanks Narvel, Jim Weatherston, Scott Borchetta." Borchetta is the head of Big Machine. Narvel is Narvel Blackstock, the husband of Reba McEntire, who was the first artist signed to the label and his manager. Weatherson is the general manager of Nash Icon.
In the Facebook posting, Dunn sported a black baseball cap with the words "Nashchetta" on the front.
There was no word on when new music from Dunn would be out.
Rumors have circulated as well about a reunion with Brooks. In a Facebook post on Nov. 26, Dunn wrote, "talking to Kix. He's talkin' back."
