– Ronnie Dunn released the new video for "Ain't No Trucks in Texas" today on VEVO and CMT.
Shot in Nashville and directed by Peter Zavadil, the video focuses on post-relationship regret and whether the grass is really greener.
"We really wanted to do something simple and poignant," said Dunn. "Relationships are tough and it is not always easy to express your feelings. This song signifies how it is easier to let a relationship end than tell someone how you really feel."
Dunn sings with irony, "There ain't no trucks in Texas / Ain't no football in the south / Ain't no bourbon in Kentucky, I ain't drinkin' me some now / Ain't no stars in California, Memphis never had the blues / Oh, there ain't no trucks in Texas, and I ain't missing you."
"It's a song about male pride," said Zavadil. "It's not about trucks, whiskey or a variety of catchy clichés. It's about a guy with a broken heart fighting to play it down."
Penned by Wendell Mobley, Tony Martin and Neil Thrasher, "Ain't No Trucks In Texas" is Dunn's first single from Nash Icon Records. Rascal Flatts' Jay DeMarcus, who produced the track, is continuing to work with Dunn for an upcoming album.
Dunn will head back to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in December following a string of sold-out performances. Reba, Brooks & Dunn: Together in Vegas has extended its run through May 2016
