Most people don’t think of big-star entertainers like Brooks & Dunn as shy people, but Ronnie Dunn was incredibly shy in his younger years, so much that you might never have expected to see him on a stage. “I was almost paralyzed with shyness and couldn’t really finish a sentence,” he recalls. Ronnie’s certainly come a long way from those days, but music was always his escape, and he says it still is today. “I was almost paralyzed with shyness and couldn’t really finish a sentence; I was just so self-conscious. People would come to visit my parents, and I would leave; I would go to the back and shut the door and go to my room. I’d turn the record player on and listen to music. And that’s…that was always…it was always my escape, and it is today.
