Ronnie Dunn Debuts ‘Ain’t No Trucks in Texas’ Music Video
Ronnie Dunn has released a music video for his latest single, "Ain't No Trucks in Texas." The song is the debut release from his upcoming new album, which will be his first record on the Nash Icon record label.
With tongue-in-cheek lyrics like, “There ain’t no trucks in Texas / Ain’t no football in the South / Ain’t no bourbon in Kentucky, I ain’t drinkin’ me some now / Ain’t no stars in California / Memphis never had the blues / Oh, there ain’t no trucks in Texas, and I ain’t missing you,” the song, written by Wendell Mobley, Tony Martin and Neil Thrasher, was the perfect way for Dunn to introduce his upcoming set of tunes.
“We really wanted to do something simple and poignant,” Dunn says. “Relationships are tough, and it is not always easy to express your feelings. This song signifies how it is easier to let a relationship end than tell someone how you really feel.”
The video, directed by Peter Zavadil, shows Dunn singing at night, while the ending of a relationship unfolds in a small town.
"It's a song about male pride,” says Zavadil. “It's not about trucks, whiskey or a variety of catchy cliches. It's about a guy with a broken heart fighting to play it down."
Rascal Flatts‘ Jay DeMarcus produced the track, which Dunn hints will be a staple in his future live shows.
“I haven’t been this excited about new music in a while,” Dunn says of the song. “And I am definitely looking forward to performing [this song] live for fans.”
Dunn will return to Las Vegas in December to continue his Reba, Brooks & Dunn: Together in Vegas residency along with good friends Reba McEntire and Kix Brooks. The trio just added several dates in 2016, due to fan demand.
