In response to the news, Dunn commented, “I am so blown away and so honored. I want to thank everyone at radio for all of the support and belief in me. Thanks for getting this music out there to the people, and to all the peeps out there rockin’ with us, thank you so very, very much! Y’all are makin’ a farm girl’s dream come true, for that I can’t thank you enough.”
