Giddy-Up: Ronnie Dunn Buys $2.25 Million Horse Ranch in Nashville

One of the perks of being half of the best-selling duo in country music history? Being able to afford a $2.25 million horse ranch.

Ronnie Dunn—of Brooks & Dunn fame—recently bought six acres of pristine Nashville real estate from Thomas F. Frist Jr., who happens to be the richest man in Tennessee (estimated net worth of $8.1 billion).

According to realtor.com, Ronnie’s new estate, which is close to Harpeth Hills Golf Course, features a barn, stream and is completely fenced.

Ronnie’s “Parkview Farm” in Nashville—an 11,000-square-foot mansion with a party barn—has been on the market since 2014 for around $9 million.

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
