Ronnie Dunn is starting to roll.
You could feel the momentum building back in the early ’90s when Ronnie Dunn was hitting it big as one half of the hugely successful duo. I’m getting the same feeling as Ronnie released what could be considered his second solo single (I realize he had a few released prior to his B&D days).
The new track is powerful. It’s timely. And most importantly it’s good.

Cost of Livin’ – Ronnie Dunn
This is a snapshot of what life is like today in America. People are out of work and looking. People are helping each other out even if they are down on their luck themselves. It’s reality and there really is only a glimmer of hope each day that we can keep getting by until we get ahead.
Ronnie Dunn has always been magic writing and singing country songs. With [easyazon-link asin=”B0052DDFEI”]Cost Of Livin'[/easyazon-link] he once again finds a way to connect with the way his fans are living today. The song is about a guy applying for a job. We don’t really get a glimpse of exactly what the job is, but there is a little insight.
The guy applying for the job is willing to work all hours of the day. He’s willing to come in and never call in sick. He’s willing to sweep the floors if he has to. He’s not too proud to do anything. As a listener you can get the real sense of how this person is putting their past accomplishments and their pride behind them so they can earn some type of living.
If it hasn’t happened to you in the last couple years you surely know someone that has gone through the loss of a job. Some have had to go back to work doing what they may have felt is below their ability. There’s no shame in it. It’s just the way things work out sometimes. When we have ourselves and our families to care for we need to put our heads down sometimes and bring home the bread.
Ronnie Dunn really has another good song on his hands with [easyazon-link asin=”B0052DDFEI”]Cost Of Livin'[/easyazon-link]. I can see this one winning awards and becoming a huge fan favorite over the summer.
Don’t you think?
