Editorial Reviews

2011 debut solo album by the Country singer/songwriter best known as half of multi-million selling duo Brooks & Dunn. For Dunn and for all the fans he earned along the way, this deeply felt new effort has been a long time coming. In many ways, Ronnie Dunn is literally the album of a lifetime for the man whose name now gives this remarkable collection of songs its title. The album reflects perhaps the most intense soul searching Ronnie Dunn has ever done as a recording artist -- and as a man too. A famed perfectionist by nature, Dunn admits that he threw himself into the creative process for the album in a very big way as he produced his own solo debut.

Prime Cuts: I Don't Dance, Bleed Red, Love Owes Me One

After country duo Brooks and Dunn called it a day, Ronnie Dunn proved that he's not done yet with the release of his self-titled disc just a year or so after their split. Indeed this eponymous release is one of the most anticipated releases of the year. And safe to say this album doesn't disappoint. While the latter Brooks and Dunn releases were a hits and misses, "Ronnie Dunn" is consistently stellar with melodic romps that revved up his redneck credentials as well as power ballads that driver emotions on roller coasters of heartbreak, love and hope. Like his input from his Brook and Dunn days, Dunn has again co-written 9 out of the 12 cuts here with long time cohorts such as Terry McBride, Craig Wiseman and current top Nashville scribe Dallas Davidson. Most winsome is still Dunn's gorgeous vocals--even at the ripe old age of 57, he still possess the tenacity to hold on to notes with aplomb. And the way his voice nuances so much emotions especially on the ballads is something an artist half his age could only dream of doing.

Without a shadow of a doubt, the power ballads here are to die for. Lead single "Bleed Red" is more than a song. It is an epic monster of a power ballad that finds Dunn soaring to heavenly heights and bursting with conciliatory sentimental. This is heavenly stuff as Dunn sings about empathy, forgiveness and reconciliation in a world toxic with divisiveness and prejudice. Aptly clad with some stark guitar licks, the scantily adorned "Cost of Living" finds Dunn on his prophetic soapbox delivering a moving homily of how many have been plagued by the downward spiral of the economy. Dunn's measured and understated delivery here is mesmerizing.

That's a quote from Ronnie Dunn on a recent CMT interview. And although I was a little perplexed by the comment prior to hearing this album (What? He didn't enjoy having 20 years of hits with Brooks & Dunn?), I get it now. Because--and this may be hard to get across in a written review--that album just FEELS so natural and right for Dunn's voice. I was also concered by the lead single, "Bleed Red," which I was quick to dismiss as another in a line of well-made but somewhat boring ballads akin to B & D's mega-hit "Believe." And while the song has grown on me, I'm still happy to report that it isn't really representative of the album.

RONNIE DUNN contains quite a few up-tempo bar-ready rockin' country tunes. And that's a good thing. "Let the Cowboy Rock" and "Singer in a Cowboy Band" wouldn't have been out of place on a Brooks & Dunn album. Yet, the difference is in the music. Dunn's band is super-tight, wearing the familiar chords and rhythms like badges of honor. And when he does slow things down, the band offers up classic country music, well-played. Songs like "I Just Can't Help Myself" and "I Don't Dance" could just be future classics. There's even a sidetrip south of the border with "How Far to Waco." Dunn even takes on the economy in the somber "Cost of Livin'", with its uneasy chorus speaking of "Three bucks and change at the pump."

Give this solo debut a try, I think you'll enjoy it.

I was forever waiting for Ronnie to put his first single cd out and I can tell you it was worth the wait! While I hated that Brooks and Dunn split up ( still do), I knew Ronnie would do good - and he did, on every song. If you love his voice you will love this cd as I do! I hope in the future that maybe the two can do a duet or two on one of his cd's! That would be awesome! Congratulations Ronnie, on your first solo!

This album is excellent and really showcases what a great voice Ronnie Dunn has. There isn't one so-so song on it - they are all great! Have always been a huge Brooks & Dunn fan and especially liked their songs that showcased Ronnie's voice and now there is a whole album for that. Love it! I especially like the mariache band on "How Far to Waco" - being a huge Johnny Cash fan I had a "Ring of Fire" flashback as soon as I heard the intro for that song the first time.

I've always believed that Ronnie Dunn had one of the greatest voices EVER....and this CD proves it. There are many hauntingly beautiful ballads as well as some honky-tonky tunes. I believe Ronnie is one of the great talents out there. At 57 with many years of singing, traveling, and the on-the-road life, he sounds amazing. I give it 5 stars.

Yes WOW.
I had to listen to this one a few times before I realized this is a gem.
And you know what? I realized a long time ago that a good cd needs to grow on you. This one does. Every time you listen to it you'll discover new things. Ronnie can be proud!

I have been a fan of Brooks and Dunn since their first album. I wasn't always a fan of Kixx's voice, but he did provide an element that seems to be noticeably missing from this solo album by Dunn. I sat down and gave this new album a solid listen, and although I do like some of the songs, there just isn't (to me) any one song that reaches out and touches me the way the Brooks and Dunn albums did. There's no one or two songs with that deep melodic structure that makes me want to listen again and again. There's no fiddle, no bar room fodder, no boot scootin songs; but a lot of electric guitar, which is okay, although I'm somewhat depressed that Country wants to be rock n roll these days. Ronnie has a nice, powerful voice, and I've always liked his vocals; however, he shouldn't stray too far from his roots which made him famous.
All this being said, I noticed in the liner notes that Dunn never mentions Kixx Brooks; no thank you for the years together, no thanks for the memories; no nothing. That, to me, seemed kinda odd.
