Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Kentucky Grown”? Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
So, “Kentucky Grown” was a song I wrote about a summer love. It mentions several special things we experienced together and real life moments.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
No plan for a video currently, but I’m hoping to release a music video along with my new EP.
What was the inspiration behind your new music?
All of my experiences over the past year have influenced my new music; the good, the bad and the in between. With my new music, I hope to tell you what I’ve gone through and the feelings I’ve experienced.
What role does Kentucky play in your music?
Kentucky is where I’m from, so that’s my base for everything I do – including making music. But, I also try to take in the culture from other cities I’ve been to. I love experiencing new things and relating those back to my songwriting.
How do you go on balancing the retro with the modern?
Balancing retro and modern… I try to not worry about that. If you do, you become stuck and chase what the industry is probably already done with. Each song I write is exactly what I’m feeling and hearing at that time; I stay true to myself and strive to remain authentic in my music.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
Great! I’m releasing a new EP very soon and can’t wait for everyone to hear it.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
My title for my new project is “Perfectly Imperfect.” You can find a deep meaning there, but it’s something we all should adopt.
Any plans to hit the road?
As far as hitting the road – we stay doing that! Last year was my 2nd year playing music, and we played 67 shows in 20 different states. To say we had fun is an understatement! This year, we’re on track to do that again – and hopefully more. I can’t wait!
What else is happening next in Timmy Dunn’s world?
What’s next? More music, more creating, more team building, and working towards goals I’ve set for myself.
