Ronnie Dunn Talks About Supporting Rising Talent

Ronnie Dunn dropped his solo album “100 Proof Neon” on Friday and it’s got plenty of new artists on it. He’s known for lifting up and supporting new talent including working on their albums, like he did with Hardy’s “Hixtape.”

For his project, Dunn enlisted Parker McCollum and Jake Worthington for duets. He also includes the Triston Marez collab “Where the Neon Lies.”

Ronnie is so into new artists that he launched a publishing company and not only signed country artists, but a rocker named Ariel Boetel. Of the new venture he says “I’ve wanted to do it for years. I just didn’t have the time to put into it to really do it justice. I signed four writers. Thomas Perkins was the first guy and we ended up co-writing ‘Broken Neon Heart.’”

As for giving new artists a chance with the publishing company and his indie label, Ronnie says “I’ll do the artist thing as long as I can get away with it.”
