Ira Dean, former bass player for the group Trick Pony, may be a solo artist for his new single, "Nothin' to Do Round Here," but he's not alone on the song.

Dean's joined on the track, the first from an upcoming album, by several of his famous friends: Ronnie Milsap, Montgomery Gentry, Colt Ford, Jeffrey Steele and Lee Roy Parnell all help out with guest vocals.

"I wanna thank my buddies Ronnie Milsap, Lee Roy Parnell and Jeffrey Steele for answering the phone when I called," Dean says. "Then it was, 'Man, I wish Eddie and T-Roy would sing on this,' so I made another phone call. Then I was telling Colt Ford about the whole dang thing and how I have never had more fun in the studio in my life, and he said, 'Well, thanks brother, for the call.' He came in, and BAM! Right off the cuff, done!

"We'll cross another one off on my bucket list," he adds. "I always wanted to do not just a vocal event but a Traveling Wilburys-kinda thing, where it ain't just a vocal event but more of an all-star band."

Dean signed with Average Joes Entertainment in 2011. He co-wrote the new single with hit tunesmiths Shane Minor and Jeffrey Steele; it will appear on his freshman solo album, It's About Time.

Trick Pony disbanded in 2006. They announced a reunion last year, but current information on the group mentions only Heidi Newfield and Keith Burns.
