    They're beautiful and affecting songs, the sort one sings as a tribute to a wife who's put up with 20 years of touring, and may have to settle for 20 more.

    Ronnie Dunn is an admirable solo effort and is as rock-solid as any Brooks & Dunn album, which should appease old and new fans alike.

    Ronnie Dunn sounds and feels big.

    In solo mode following a two-decade stint with Brooks & Dunn, the country star sticks to what he knows: road songs, love songs, songs about how every once in a while you've gotta drink enough whiskey to kill a horse. [3/10 June 2011, p. 112]

    What he doesn't really have is a strong hook to pull listeners into the album; there's nothing surprising or unexpected or exceptionally hooky, just 12 polished slices of contemporary country that will surely please longtime Brooks & Dunn fans largely because it doesn't feel all that different than the duo.

    With this vocal showcase, Ronnie may finally garner a long-overdue best male country vocalist award.

    The duo's taller half, Ronnie Dunn, was long regarded as the more distinctive singer, and on his solo debut, there's no more sharing of the spotlight to hold him back. That's about the only difference between a Brooks & Dunn record and this similarly hit-and-miss collection of odes to blue-collar empathy, patriotism and the transformative power of love.
