Dunn tattoos "Heart"
Monday, August 22, 2016
– Ronnie Dunn will release his Big Machine Label Group debut, "Tattooed Heart," on Oct. 21.
"Damn Drunk," with Kix Brooks helping out, is the current single. The 12 tracks were recorded in Nashville with Rascal Flatts' Jay Demarcus serving as producer on 11 of them, and Reba McEntire contributing to "Still Feels Like Mexico" with Tommy Lee James producing.
"I had a lot of fun making this album. Jay and I really clicked in the studio and we were both really proud of the final product," said Dunn. "I branched out of my comfort zone while writing and listening to a ton of music. At the suggestion of my daughter, I even recorded an Ariana Grande song. Ironically, it became the title of the album."
