Ronnie Dunn Mistaken for Member of the Bee Gees

Ronnie Dunn recently celebrated his 60 millionth play on the radio, but he’s still a stranger to some. In an interview with Y’allwire, Dunn admitted that he was mistaken recently for a member of the Bee Gees. He didn’t say which of the three brothers the stranger thought he was, but we’re betting it was Barry Gibb.

“I was in a restaurant in Cancun a few months ago with Reba McEntire and her husband Narvel,” Dunn tells Y’allwire. “The waiter comes up to me … and says, ‘I know you. You’re in the Bee Gees!’”

It’s an honest mistake if the waiter quit following the Bee Gees in the late ’80s. Since then, Barry Gibb’s hair has turned grey, Maurice Gibb has died and Robin Gibb has taken to wearing blue-tinted glasses.

Dunn matches the ’70s pop-disco band in airplay, however. The overwhelming majority of that airplay came with partner Kix Brooks. ‘Boot Scootin’ Boogie’ is their most played hit, with just over six million plays since it debuted in 1992. Dunn was in Nashville collecting another BMI MillionAir award at the time of this interview.

Now that Dunn is a solo artist he’s focused more on having fun and less on collecting awards. “I just want to play and sing music, and every now and then write a song,” he says. His new self-titled solo album is in stores now, featuring ‘Bleed Red’ and his current single ‘Cost of Livin’.’
