Ronnie Dunn Channels Merle Haggard And Metallica On Forthcoming Album


Ronnie Dunn, who is currently at work on his sophomore solo album, says the new record is "all over the map." Speaking with The Boot, the Brooks & Dunn member noted a range of influences on it, including Merle Haggard and Metallica.

"I like going and reaching just as far on the progressive end as I can and then coming right back with the next song and hitting you right square between the eyes with a good old fiddle and a straight traditional country song," he said.

"I've got one on there called 'Hey Haggard!' and another one called 'Country This,' which is almost Metallica, a tongue-in-cheek thing. There's an edge to this one that the other album didn't have -- and I loved the other one. When you're in the moment that's always the best record you've ever made. But the mule's definitely kicking in the barn!" he added.

"Cost of Livin'," a single from his solo debut, is up for Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song at this year's Grammys.
