With the news that Reba McEntire, followed by Martina McBride, signed to Nash Icon Music, we were certainly anticipating quite the roster as the label grew legs and continued to flourish. Our expectations have been met, once again, by the Big Machine Label Group subsidiary that is focusing on legendary artists who are emerging with new music.
One-half of celebrated duo Brooks & Dunn, Ronnie Dunn, has become the third to sign with Scott Borchetta’s newest venture, as confirmed by Big Machine’s official Twitter:

I’m sorry, but is that a rhetorical question? Of course we are ready for new Ronnie Dunn music!
Dunn had been dropping hints prior to the official announcement by Big Machine, including a Facebook post where he was showing off a new “NashChetta” hat and thanking Borchetta for his “company cap.”
Congratulations to Ronnie Dunn on his new record deal, which comes at a perfect time to release new tunes before taking up a Las Vegas residency with labelmate and longtime friend, Reba, as well as previous musical partner, Kix Brooks.
