Een mooi fragment van de ACM Girls Night Out van in augustus waarin Jennifer Nettles van Sugarland in de bloemetjes wordt gezet. Ronnie Dunn doet hier wat hij het best kan, ongelooflijk goede ballads brengen. Eerst brengt hij solo het nummer Stay van Sugarland  en daarna zingt hij samen met Jennifer Let Him Fly van Dixie Chicks.Songtekst :

i been sittin’ here staring
at the clock on the wall
and i been layin here praying
praying she won’t call
it’s just another call from home
and you’ll get it and be gone
and i’ll be crying
and i’ll be beggin you baby
beg you not to leave
but i’ll be left here waiting
with my heart on my sleeve
oh for the next time we’ll be here
seems like a million years
and i think i’m dying

what do i have to do to make you see
she can’t love you like me

why dont you stay
im down on my knees
im so tired of being lonely
don’t i give you what you need
when she calls you will go
there is one thing you should know
we dont have to live this way
baby why dont you stay

you keep telling me baby
there will come a time
when you will leave her arms
and forever be in mine
but i don’t think that’s the truth
and i don’t like being used
and i’m tired of waiting
it’s too much pain to have to bear
to love a man you have to share

why dont you stay
im down on my knees
im so tired of being lonely
don’t i give you what you need
when she calls you will go
there is one thing you should know
we dont have to live this way
baby why dont you stay

i can’t take it any longer
but my will is getting stronger
and i think i know just what i have to do
i can’t waste another minute
after all that i’ve put in it
i’ve given you my best
why does she get the best of you
so the next time you find
you wanna leave her bed for mine

why dont you stay
im up off my knees
im so tired of being lonely
you cant give me what i need
when she begs you not to go
there is one thing you should know
i dont have to live this way
baby why dont you stay

yeah yeah oh oh oh oha oh

Let Him Fly

Ain’t no talkin’ to this man
Ain’t no pretty other side
Ain’t no way to understand the stupid words of pride
It would take an acrobat and I already tried all that
I’m gonna let him fly – mmm

Things can move at such a pace
The second hand just waved good-bye
You know the light has left his face
But you can’t recall just where or why
So there was reallly nothing to it
I just went and cut right through it
I said I’m gonna let him fly
Ooo yea

There’s no mercy in a live wire
No rest at all in freedom
Choices we are given
It’s no choice at all
The proof is in the fire
You touch before it moves away – yeah
But you must always know
how long to stay and when to go

And there ain’t no talkin’ to this man
He’s been tryin’ to tell me so
It took a while to understand
the beauty of just letting go
‘Cause it would take an acrobat n’
I already tried all that

i’m gonna let him fly
I’m gonna let him fly – fly woah
I’m gonna let him fly – fly woah
I’m gonna let him fly.
