Ronnie Dunn Previews New Covers Album With His Take on ‘Amarillo by Morning’

Country Music Hall of Famer covers George Strait, Gary Stewart, Eagles on upcoming LP ‘Re-Dunn’

After re-recording the hits of Brooks & Dunn with guest stars like Luke Combs and Jon Pardi on this spring’s Reboot, Ronnie Dunn tackles the songs of his influences on the upcoming album Re-Dunn.

A massive collection of 24 songs, the record includes the cowboy singer’s interpretations of hits by a diverse group of artist, including the Eagles, Tom T. Hall, Johnny Rodriguez, Merle Haggard, and Eric Clapton. Dunn also covers two songs by George Strait: “The Cowboy Rides Away” and “Amarillo by Morning.” He premieres the latter today, along with his version of the Hollies’ 1972 hit “Long Cool Woman (In a Black Dress).”

Dunn plans to release two tracks from the album every four weeks until its official release sometime in January.

“This is a passion project for me. If you put together a group of songs that define the soundtrack of my life, this is what it would look like,” he said in a statement.

Dunn, who turned 66 in June, has shifted his focus when it comes to country music and, especially, how he releases songs, either solo or with Brooks & Dunn.

“We’re not a radio act,” he told Rolling Stone in April. “That’s not a primary consideration now. ”
