Ronnie Goes Solo

After Brooks & Dunn disbanded in in 2010, Ronnie Dunn took off on a new phase of his career. He released his debut solo record in 2011, which produced the Top 10 single “Bleed Red.”


Dunn has since released two more solo albums, with the most recent being 2016’s Tattooed Heart.

“Ain’t No Trucks in Texas,” was released as the first single, and claimed the 42nd spot on the Country Airplay chart. The album also reunited Dunn with Kix Brooks on its second single “Damn Drunk,” which reached the 36th spot on the Country Airplay chart.

A third single, “That’s Why They Make Jack Daniels,” reached the 51st spot on the chart.

Another Standout On The Album

Although Dunn never released an additional single off of the record, we still hope that someday he’ll send “I Worship the Woman You Walked On” to radio.

Written by Bob DiPiero, Mitzi Dawn Jenkins, and Tony Mullins, “I Worship the Woman You Walked On” is narrated by a man who loves a woman that just got out of a bad relationship. The man addresses the woman’s ex-lover in the song, blaming him for her broken heart:

“‘Cause I worship the woman you walked on. I hold her at night, ’til she’s satisfied. Oh, I try to right all you did wrong. I worship the woman you walked on.”

It’s clear that the lyrics are compelling enough on their own, but Dunn’s performance pushes the whole song into overdrive.

This Will Speak Straight To You

He takes on an almost conversational-like tone in the song’s verses, making it seem like he’s talking directly to any man who has ever broken someone’s heart.

The chorus exhibits Dunn’s talent on another level, as his voice grows in volume and intensity. Crooning out each word in his signature style, Dunn brings great dynamic to the already powerful song.

Words can’t begin to do any justice to Dunn’s performance in “I Worship the Woman You Walked On.” So we’re going to let you take it in yourself. You can catch its official lyric video below.
