Artists Take On CMA Fest (6-6-13)

Ronnie Dunn surprised fans in downtown Nashville for CMA Music Festival activities last night (June 5) when he performed four songs on the rooftop patio of Rippy’s Bar and Grill on lower Broadway. The performance happened as fans were departing the Bridgestone Arena after watching the CMT Awards. Dunn debuted four new songs: “Country This,” “Kiss You There,” “Cowgirls Rock ‘N’ Roll” and “Peace, Love and Country Music.” During “Kiss You There,” a flash mob took over Broadway for an impromptu dance. Both “Country This” and “Kiss You There” can be downloaded exclusively on iTunes.
