Ronnie Dunn is redefining what it means to be a contemporary rock star with the emancipation of his brand-new guitar-heavy single, “Let The Cowboy Rock.” The two-time GRAMMY winning legendary songster has learned a thing or two over his iconic 20-year career about finding one’s own voice in music, including the fact that die-hard American country music knows no bounds. Dunn’s new up-tempo cowboy-rocker anthem officially impacted country radio yesterday and a supporting music video is now available HERE. The video and single is available for download beginning today via iTunes and has already begun rotation on CMT, GAC and supporting national networks.
“Let The Cowboy Rock” was penned by Dunn, along with hit songwriter Dallas Davidson, who also co-produced the track, and joins similar-veined Dunn co-writes such as “Cowgirls Don’t Cry,” “Cowboy Town,” “Neon Moon,” “Boot Scootin’ Boogie,” and “Play Something Country” in context.
The new single can be found on Dunn’s self-titled solo debut that is in stores now and is a follow-up to his lyrical masterpieces “Bleed Red,” and “Cost of Livin’.”
The music video was filmed partly in Pendleton, Oregon during the Pendleton Round-Up with rider Blake Knowles (lead character) with additional footage of Dunn shot in Salt Flat, Utah and Nashville, Tennessee with The Stage on Lower Broadway serving as a backdrop.
In addition to his single and video debut, on Wednesday, January 18, live performance from Dunn’s Yahoo!’s Ram Country taping will debut on Yahoo! Music featuring exclusive footage of “Let The Cowboy Rock,” “Cost of Livin’,” and “How Far To Waco” from Ronnie Dunn.
