Ronnie Dunn’s fans aren’t afraid of a little smoke. During his performance of the Brooks & Dunnclassic “Ain’t Nothin’ ‘Bout You” at the Franklin Theatre benefit concert in Franklin, Tennessee last Saturday night, the fire alarms began to sound. The crowd remained seated, however, with every intention of seeing a full Ronnie Dunn show.

After Ronnie performed a few of his originals from his self-titled debut solo album, his smoke machine triggered the alarm. Ronnie and his band finished the song before calmly evacuating the stage. The crowd stayed put while the fire department walked through the venue to make sure it was safe. When it was deemed secure,  the show continued.

Ronnie picked up where he left off before the fire alarm interrupted, performing both songs from his solo album and old-school Brooks & Dunn hits like “Neon Moon,” “My Maria,” “Cowgirls Don’t Cry,” and “Boot Scootin’ Boogie.” He wrapped the show with a harp-infused encore of “I Believe.”
