TerryMcBride: Play Somethin’ Country
In the 1990s and early 2000s, no other songwriter collaborated with Brooks and Dunn more than Terry McBride. He even became Ronnie Dunn’s travel pal, riding from gig to gig on various tours on Ronnie’s bus. Together, they came up more than 20 songs, some of which became stone-cold classics, including Play Somethin’ Country and Cowgirls Don’t Cry. And if that’s all McBride was known for, that’d be just fine. But he’s a lot more than that: he’s fronted his own successful band (McBride and The Ride), he’s just released his first solo material in 20 years, and the biggest hit he’s ever written isn’t even country….although that’s how it started.
