Country singer Ronnie Dunn – one half of superduo Brooks & Dunn – talked with Taste of Country a bit last week about musicians that influenced him. Among Dunn’s more interesting recent influences: “I love Harrison’s slide guitar on ‘Something,’” the singer told Taste of Country.
Dunn has of course been impactful in his own wide-ranging way, and the wild diversity of Brooks & Dunn covers on YouTube are a pretty-great sample of his influence. Among the YouTube treasures we unearthed: a rocker girl singing a heartfelt cover of B&D’s ‘If You See Her, If You See Him’; a ukelele-toting troubadour singing his dog to sleep with ‘Neon Moon’; and a near-perfect bedroom rendition of ‘My Maria.’ Check ‘em out and more below, and don’t forget to sign up to see and meet Ronnie Dunn in Yakima, WA on June 21!
If you lost your home in a fire, you probably wouldn't be in the mood to joke about it with a room full of reporters - but then, you're probably not multi-platinum-selling country singer Trace Adkins, who kicked off a recent press conference with a simple "My house burned down."
Adkins, whose next album is scheduled for release in August, was traveling when the fire happened, but his wife and children were home - so a lot of his good humor comes from the fact that they (and the family's puppies) made it out safely.
They've performed together before, they're both young country artists, and they just finished an 'American Idol' run that ended with him in first place and her in second, so it's only natural to ask: Have Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina talked about recording a duet now that they're labelmates?
"Yeah, we have," says McCreery, although Alaina adds,"We need to establish ourselves as artists first ... hopefully down the road, if we're still around, we'll put something together."
Dad is going to love you no matter what you get him, but seriously, he really doesn't need another tie. This year, get him something he might actually use, like one of these five ideas for Father's Day gifts that can do a heck of a lot more than a "World's Best Dad" mug.
The legendary country duo that was Brooks & Dunn "retired" back in 2009, but the famed band's ex-members Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn are still keeping busy.
Brooks is working on a new album and filming a western called 'To Kill a Memory' with "Boots On" singer Randy Houser. Dunn has a new album out and a hit single with 'Bleed Red,' and he'll be touring the nation solo for the next few months. You can sign up on our Facebook page for your chance to win two tickets and backstage passes to Dunn's July 21st show in Yakima, WA.
We got a little nostalgic thinking about all that history, though, so we surfed the tubes and collected what we think are the five best classic Brooks & Dunn music videos. Check 'em out, and let us know if we missed any (or if we're just flat wrong).
Here's your chance to meet country superstar Ronnie Dunn! All this month, we're giving the one lucky winner - and a friend - the opportunity to fly to sunny Yakima, Washington to see Dunn play at the Yakima Valley SunDome
On Memorial Day, we commemorate all the U.S. soldiers who've died while serving our country. With so many of our servicemen and women currently on dangerous overseas assignments, it's also a time to think about their sacrifice, and the sacrifice of their families back home.
In these videos, families of soldiers get the surprise and relief of a lifetime when their loved ones return home from duty unannounced. You'll really want to grab a box of tissues before watching.
