Fans of ’90s country music better buckle up because Ronnie Dunn just announced that he’s been working on a full-blown, hardcore, ’90s country record.
The news was dropped during a podcast interview with Whiskey Riff on Friday, June 19, 2020.
During the podcast they covered all sorts of topics, including the glory days with Brooks & Dunn, his iconic “cowboy” tattoo, their Reboot record and of course, his new Re-Dunn cover record as well as what he’s been doing during COVID-19. He even shared a hilarious story of a recent encounter with a water moccasin while exploring his property.

We're in for a long haul with this COVID thing. Kix and I were packed up and ready to roll. Maybe God gave me these long legs for a reason ? Bad storms. The power is out in much of Nashville and here at the "farm". I just bought a new lawn mower and a generator (last one in stock). It's pretty tough on all of us. I have it easy…. not complaining at all. We're all in this together. You're free to vent on this site. I sure as hell will…. RD
Dunn took some time giving backstory behind their 2003 hit song, “Red Dirt Road” and explained that it was one of the most personal songs he’d ever been a part of writing.
The best news by far was when he dropped the bomb that he’s got a ’90s country album already in the works. During the interview he stated,
“I’m working on putting together a hardcore ’90s record with Scott Borchetta over at Big Machine now. I’m well into it. I’ve got songs written that feel like B&D Stuff.”
He even mentioned that he might pay Kix Brooks to come sing.
“I may pay Kix a hundred bucks and see if he’d come sing a part or two.”
As of now there’s no timeline yet for when the album will be done.
