Dunn Debuts New Music During CMA Music Fest;
“Country This” and “Kiss You There” Now Available on iTunes
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Thursday, June 6, 2013 – Country music superstar Ronnie Dunn surprised fans in downtown Nashville for CMA Music Festival activities last night when he performed four songs on the rooftop patio of Rippy’s Bar and Grill on lower Broadway. The performance happened as fans were departing the Bridgestone Arena after watching the CMT Awards. Dunn debuted four new songs:  “Country This,” “Kiss You There,” “Cowgirls Rock ‘N’ Roll” and “Peace, Love and Country Music.”  During “Kiss You There,” a flash mob took over Broadway for an impromptu dance to the delight of the crowd.  Both “Country This” and “Kiss You There” can be downloaded exclusively on iTunes.

As Dunn told USA Today, “I’m more excited about where music is today than I ever have been. We no longer have to play by rules

because there are no rules. The band and crew snuck in and set-up to ambush the unsuspecting crowd coming out of the CMT Awards.  We don’t have a clue what we’re doing, but we’re having fun and working overtime to come up with unorthodox ways to get music to people who simply like music. I hope that those of you who rambled into the line of fire had a good time!”
 
In addition to the performance, screens covered the buildings between Fourth and Fifth Avenues broadcasting the performance with #countrythis and #kissyouthere covering the buildings and the roof of the historic Ryman Auditorium. 
 
Inside Rippy’s bar, Dunn gave away over 1,000 hangover patches for indulgent CMA Music Festival attendees.
 
In-between tour dates, Dunn is writing songs and working on a new album expected in stores this fall.  For more information, visit www.RonnieDunn.com.
