After the disbanding of Brooks & Dunn in 2010, Ronnie Dunn went solo. Just a year after entering into the new phase of his career, Dunn immediately launched his debut album in 2011 producing the Top 10 single, “Bleed Red.” For the next five years, Dunn released 3 more solo albums which included “Tattooed Heart” in 2016.
“Tattooed Heart” had the single “Ain’t No Truck in Texas” as the first released single of the album. The song charted at the 42nd spot of the Country Airplay chart. It was also through this same album that Ronnie Dunn was reunited with his former partner Kix Brooks for the second single “Damn Drunk” which peaked at the 36th spot of the Country Airplay chart. Dunn again released the third single out from the album in “That’s Why They Make Jack Daniels” which reached the 51st spot on the chart.
Ronnie Dunn’s Ballad Will Hit You Hard
Contrary to what we were expecting, Ronnie Dunn stopped there and did not release another single from his album. But if he did release one, we all hoped that it would be “I Worship the Woman You Walked On.” The strong title itself is enough to grab your attention. To boot, the lyrics and the passion that Dunn set into the song would sure fire give you goosebumps.
“I Worship the Woman You Walked On” was written by Bob DiPiero, Mitzi Dawn Jenkins, and Tony Mullins. The song was centered around a man in love with a woman who just got out of a bad relationship. He puts all the blame on the woman’s ex-lover for her broken heart and does all the best he can to mend it.
Other than the compelling lyrics, Dunn’s inventive performance put the song over the top. From the very beginning of the song, till the last few words mixed with some controversial like tone, Ronnie Dunn sounded like having a man-to-man talk with those who may have broken somebody else’s heart.
Indeed, Ronnie Dunn’s talent was in full display in “I Worship the Woman You Walked On.” Take for example the way he sang the chorus. As the song reaches its climax, Dunn’s voice grew in volume, and intensity as he charmingly croons out each word. Dunn brought in a great dynamic to what is already an exceptional song.
The majority would agree that “I Worship the Woman You Walked On” could go down as one of the most touching songs in Ronnie Dunn’s catalog. This makes us certain that Dunn is capable to deliver any emotional ballad in the near future with the same impact that will be appreciated by fans of any demographic.
Still Can’t Get Enough with the “Reboot” Tour?
A decade after their split, Brooks & Dunn announced that they would be having a tour again. This would be the first one since 2010. The Hall of Fame duo did a nationwide tour which they announced last January. This was done in 18 cities. The tour was named after their 2019 album “Reboot” where the duo revisited old songs with the help of contemporary artists like Luke Combs, Kacey Musgraves, and Cody Johnson.
But this was not the first time since 2010 that they were seen playing alongside one another. They played together with Reba McEntire on prestigious sites and shows including the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. They also played in selected festivals nationwide like the Taste of Country Music Festival in Hunter, New York.
The said tour had set off on August 28, 2020, at the Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati Ohio. Country music fans were thrilled and had certainly looked forward to seeing this return of the Brooks & Dunn duo. We’re all hoping to hear and see more of them this year.
