Ronnie Dunn Shares Cover Of Eric Clapton’s ‘Wonderful Tonight’
Ronnie Dunn shared his cover of Eric Clapton‘s classic ballad “Wonderful Tonight,” which is one of the 24 rock and country songs to feature on his upcoming album, Re-Dunn.
Clapton wrote “Wonderful Tonight” in 1977, inspired by his romance with model Pattie Boyd, who later became his wife.
Elaborating on how he was influenced by the legendary singer, Dunn told Billboard, “I used to drive back and forth from Tulsa to Nashville with Eric Clapton’s drummer, Jamie Oldaker.”
“He would tell me great Eric stories and I would give him country music quizzes by listening to the radio. Jamie told me how Eric wrote ‘Wonderful Tonight’ for Patty,” he added.
“I Won’t Back Down,” “The Cowboy Rides Away,” “Amarillo By Morning,” “Long Cool Woman (In A Black Dress),” “How Long,” “That’s How I Got To Memphis,” “That’s The Way Love Goes,” and “Showdown” are the other already released songs from the album, which is scheduled to release on January 10.
