Ronnie Dunn publishes ‘Broken Neon Hearts’, launches publishing company
The song is taken from the forthcoming fifth solo album
Ronnie Dunn has released “Broken Neon Hearts” as the lead single from his upcoming fifth solo studio album, 100 Neon Proof, scheduled for this summer. The award-winning country singer/songwriter, who is the second half of Brooks & Dunn, co-wrote the track with Thomas Perkins and Matt Willis. The song pays homage to the neo-traditional country sound.
“This is the start of a project that I have wanted to do for a long time. I deliberately went for late 80s/90s country… honky tonks, whisky, neon, lost love, looking for love… twin fiddles, steel guitars and string-bending telecasters. 100% Neon!” Dunn said on social media.
More details on the album are forthcoming.
Dunn has also started his own publishing house, Perfect Pitch Publishing, which sees him signing and mentoring young writers.
“Kix [Brooks of Brooks & Dunn] and I talked for years about starting a publishing house, but I didn’t have time. We were traveling and spending all the time we had at Brooks & Dunn to really do it right,” Dunn told Billboard.
Dunn will continue to write for his own Showbilly Music, which houses his own music along with that of Brooks & Dunn. Perfect Pitch’s roster includes Perkins, Hayden Baker, Dakota Striplin and Ariel Boetel.
